      I had to change my way of training for various reasons but I am responding way beyond I thought possible the way I am doing it now.

      I do a medium / lite weight and do 20 to 25 reps very slow and controlled at the top and end of each rep I squeeze or elongate the muscle

      and /or the angonist muscle. I use less and less weight when I can not control the weight correctly.

      I was always taught heavy and low reps to build muscle, but this is working well for me.

      Same for me brotha. I've been going a bit lighter with more volume lately and it's been working great. Always good to change it up.

      Dirt glad it is working for ya. It is all I can do now and does a great job. I think you are right with the full reps. many times with heavy stuff we cheat and do not get the full range of motion to totally elongate and then contract or vice versa.

      Volume works. Great post man.

      I love it. Triceps get crazy pumped. I've learned to do the reps slower and focus on the contraction and a slow negative. Man it FRIES them good pretty fast.
