3 seconds up 3 seconds down shouldn?t be confused with super slow or static negative training. I have just discovered this type of training that is truly amazing, Gaspari actually trained like this for yrs and he had one of the best chest in bodybuilding. The focus is on muscle tension rather than how much weight you can rack on thus helping you to add on the bulk quicker, with an increase in Growth Hormone. it has been working for me. Would love to know if anyone else has tried it

Sounds like it should be a good addition to usual routines, but of course, making gains is still a necessity. I like to go 3-5 seconds down, quick up.WriterParty.com - Start writing articles and making money for it, right now!

New research indicates that the optimum time of muscle being under tension for muscle hypertrophy to be between 30 and 70 seconds. With most "sets" lasting less than 20 seconds we are underutilizing this important component. So, your 3 seconds up and 3 seconds down with no pause at top or bottom is great for 5 to 12 reps (the best number of reps for hypertrophy as well).
