Personal Trainer Tip of the Day – Intensity Through Tempo

You don’t always need to use heavy weights to increase the difficulty of an exercise. For example, do a body weight squat at a very slow speed during both the descending and ascending phases. Go down in a five second count and come up in a five second count. Your quads will be burning by rep 8! When this gets easy, add a little weight but continue at the same tempo.
