weights and doing each repetition slowly emphasizing both the positive
and negative movements, both the lifting or pulling and the releasing.
This is ideal for intermediate and experienced people.
Heavy weights done to the
maximum. By this I mean you lift the heaviest weight you possibly can

degree. This approach to weight training is for experienced people.
