Increasing the intensity of training


One of the many principles of high intensity weight training that is valuable is the power of contraction principle. A problem with traditional lower intensity training seen most often in gyms and fitness centers is trainees swinging the weights, using momentum to allow them to use heavier weights. 

Not only does this reduce the resistance placed on the muscles reducing the results of our training, but causes five times the normal amount of weight being put on the muscles , joints and ligaments, which can cause serious injury. 

By slowing down the repetition cadence that we are using we can place all of the weight resistance on the muscle(s) being trained which will reduce the volume of training that we need to use to effectively train our body. The incidence of injuries will be greatly reduced leading to safer exercise programs and less training downtime due to injuries.
