Tempo, tempo tempo. That’s the key to this session. A variable of training not utilised enough, as typically you just bump weightwhen you want to progress. However, increasing time under tension is a very effective way to progress your workouts with increasing load. No recording times or rounds for this session… it’s definitely not a race against the clock!
