Negative-Pause-Static Shock Sets >>
Updated: Apr 14, 2018
Try taking 4-6 seconds to lower the bar in the squat and bench press. This negative or eccentric set, will have tremendous benefits in your strength and breaking through plateaus. Now incorporate a pause at the bottom of the move. This isometric pause will increase your stability and help you generate more power from a static state. This will translate into increased strength for your regular/normal sets at regular tempo. Try this move with 70-80% of your normal weight for each exercise and document your progress in strength and power over a 4-6 week period. Fatigue will set in so have someone to spot you to get the most out of the technique. More to come on the benefit of eccentric set training soon.
