The Benefits of Eccentric Muscle Training
Eccentric training sometimes referred to as negatives or slow reps focuses on working muscles as they lengthen and is essential for achieving strength, power, flexibility, injury prevention builds stronger joint structure, connective tissue and acts as a braking mechanism for control, stability and deceleration.
Eccentric training refers to how the muscle contracts while producing force; typically the return phase of an exercise. Studies show you can lift more than you would normally and can tolerate up to 1.75 times more weight. Taking advantage of your body's potential means you can work harder which leads to greater adaptations. -
Take home message:-
For Maximal Strength, Power, Size and injury prevention - never let gravity do the work.
