Dear Strength Coach,

Research studies shows that the tempo of a repetition has a great effect both neural and metabolic responses to the training. Thus, optimal tempo prescription is a great opportunity to control and target the training effect.

I am a big believer in systematic, gradual progressions that the develop the athletes as fast as they can handle, but with minimal risk of injury.
