    Slower is better!

    Something i've been told about alot, but that most people seem to ignore

    When doing your exercises, for example Bicep curls, you'll get much better workouts and results by using the full range,
    instead of just pulling the bar up, then letting it drop down, where you'll only be getting the benefits as you lift up
    Lift the bar up, then slowly use your bicep to lower it back down, this way your muscle gets the strain of lifting the weight up AND down

    Slow also allows you to focus on the form too. I also pause for exercises like squats (when crouched).

    The one thing I see all the time at the gym that makes me shake my head more than any other are these guys who are doing shrugs by just jerking the bar or dumbells up and relaxing as quick as they can. It makes me wonder if they really think they are doing themselves any good.
