Strength Training Tip – Move Slower!

Strength Training Tip – Move Slower!

strength training for triathlon

When strength training, performing the movements slower is better than fast for the following reasons:

  • Longer period of muscle tension (work)
  • Higher level of muscle force (intensity)
  • Lower level of momentum (efficiency)
  • Lower risk of tissue injury (safety)

When in doubt about your speed of exercise performance when lifting, move slower, never faster.
