Gymchat 227 - The Tempo Matrix (Karsten Jensen)

How fast?


When you're working out, how fast should each rep be? The same speed all the way through, or varying throughout?

This week we'll be discussing this area in depth, with Strength Coach Karsten Jensen and Strongman and Personal Trainer Josh Hewett. If you've got questions for Karsten or Josh, just swing by the event page for this Gymchat (during the discussion itself). Details below.
