Eccentric of Negative Training

There’s a technique I’ve been using for years that you may or may not have heard of. It’s called ECCENTRIC or Negative training. Some trainers call it SUPERSLOW training.

Here’s what you do:

Choose an upper body exercise using just your body weight like say a pushup or a pullup.

Then choose a lower body exercise like a lunge or a squat.

Perform so that it takes at least 30 seconds to get to the top of the exercise & 30 seconds to get to the bottom of the exercise.

Work up to a minute over time by adding 10 seconds each workout.

Repeat these two exercises to exhaustion

Now choose two more exercises and repeat the same protocol, for example:

  • Bicep Curls (30 secs up and 30 secs down)
  • Shoulder Presses (30 secs up and 30 secs down)
  • Eccentric training will fast track you if you’re looking to build mass & strength.
