Most people come into the gym on a chest and tris day and start banging out the reps and sets. They'll do 10 repetitions, 12 repetitions, in about half the time of the set we're going to be doing during our tempo training this week.
But take note: Tempo training doesn't mean to lift the same weight, only slower. Especially during the first two workouts of this week—the squat and bench-focused workouts—it's crucial that you listen to your body and keep enough in the tank to make it through the rest of the workout. You have a lot of sets to do!
What I'm saying is, don't be a hero on the bench press and incline dumbbell chest press. Watch yesterday's video to see how I like to approach the chest press, and don't be afraid to start off conservatively. You should need a spot some of the time, but not most of the time. If you do, man, it's time to lighten up!
