    Just trying to slow down aging process. At work I've been using 25lb x(2).
    Does it matter to those who use free weights on the timing of reps?

    So If I am doing reps of 10, when I extend up & down I take it slow, but finding myself trying to grind out the last few, so I just pushed them B**es up as quick as I can. to complete 10!

    But I am wondering if I'm taking away from my workout by pushing them up & down as quickly as possible.

    Or does it not matter so as long as I complete the reps? Hoping whoever answers has seen proof/error/benefits to repping slow vs fast.

    Side NOTE- Never asked this in my 20s because I saw the benefits in the mirror! Not today. decades later.

    Is your goal size or strength. Generally speaking from a fitness and bodybuilding perspective slow negative reps are great. Explode in the “up” part of the lift and bring it back down slowly with as much tension on your muscles as possible.

    For instance when you are benching explode to get the bar up as fast as you can and then bring it down slowly and controlled.

    Enough reps, yup, sure will. Seriously, I feel I'm cheating when I push those last few quickly. Some years ago I remember using the word resistance when repping' can't believe I forgot how to use the term.
