Thanks again to everyone who watched and sent in questions for the discussion Gymchat 227 – The Tempo Matrix [with Strength Coach Karsten Jensen and Strongman and Personal Trainer Josh Hewett] – much appreciated. If you haven’t seen it yet (or simply want to go over a particular point again), here’s the entire video.
It was a great discussion. Josh and Karsten discussed Karsten’s training origins, definition of tempo, point in rep where peak force is generated, origins of tempo training, tempos used in different cycles, modified stutter reps, tempo training for beginners vs advanced athletes, tempo vs load, keeping muscles under tension throughout movement, reasons for use of letter codes rather than numeric ones, timing cues, length of rest breaks, types of muscle fibres, time under tension; and a whole lot more. If you’re ready to find out what The Tempo Matrix is all about, make sure you watch this one.
