TRX and The TEMPO of Doom

Published on: October 19, 2020

TRX and The TEMPO of Doom. See what I did there? (Indiana Jones fan). 10 second rep tempo on any TRX exercise! A quick one to throw into the workout mix now and then to:

A quick one to throw into the workout mix now and then to:

  1. overload the central nervous system
  2. cause large amounts of catabolism (breaking down) of muscle cells
  3. encourage mindful muscle centric contractions of movement.

Plus it’s a great challenge. Watch my arms shake towards the end of the vid.

Think 4-4-2

TEMPO⁣:⁣⁣⁣

  • 4 sec downward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 0 sec pause at bottom⁣⁣⁣
  • 4 sec contraction upward phase⁣⁣⁣
  • 2 sec SUPER hard contraction / squeeze at the top⁣⁣⁣

Mike Mentzer the claimed inventor of HIIT and a phenomenal physique athlete trained with long rep times and deep stretches.

Why?

Because time under tension is arguably the key component for causing catabolism (breaking down) and thus anabolism (building up) within muscle cells.

If effective catabolism was easy and just required an intensity to be placed upon a muscle through a range of movement as a single metric…

…people would have their ideal physique fast.

But effective catabolism of a muscle comes from a whole range of things:

  • Force nutrient into the muscle cells (THE PUMP)
  • Create large amounts of lactic acid build up and thus Growth Hormone (HGH) release
  • Overload the central nervous system
  • Use only the isolated muscle contraction for movement, no momentum
  • Hyperplasia (add new muscle fibres not just building up current ones)

Studies and science would suggest the greater the time under tension placed upon a muscle

…the greater these aspects can and do come into play.

Of course this is all open to debate and what makes the word of physique sculpting, muscle centric performance and phycology within exercise so fascinating.

Science aside, it’s just fun to try 🙂

Founder

It’s my mission and passion to help people gain Fitness Freedom and achieve their fitness goals absolutely anywhere using a TRX or Resistance Band.

I used to have an unhealthy psychological reliance on gyms, believing I had to be close to one or in one at all times to achieve my fitness goals. It was limiting and confining.

Now, 6+ years later having TRX’d across 32 countries, I feel in the best shape of my life after implementing the HUGE fitness possibilities achievable anywhere with a TRX or Resistance Band.
