Just wanted to say thanks for sharing the 3:1 tempo. I am on light weight currently just getting back into a routine and you were not kidding, its a game changer.I like to lift with a 3:1 tempo, as that has done wonders for my strength. In order to do tempo properly, you have to breath the right way.
What's also nice about tempo is that, since you are taking ~4-5 seconds per rep (3 down, 1 pause, 1-2 up, you can't ego lift and bang out the set before you fatigue. Your ass will just fail.
I’m happy that you found it useful! My coach, who is also one of my best friends, put me onto lifting this way, because I was not doing things the right way there for a minute. I was impatient, and tempo has made every single bit of difference, as you have said, and found.Just wanted to say thanks for sharing the 3:1 tempo.

I will not run on asphalt again for any reason, I only run in the woods. I’ve found it more challenging in terms of elevation changes and terrain changes, and there’s nowhere near as much impact on your knees and shins.active recovery day which means a nice slow 5k, maybe on a trail if I'm feeling froggy
