FPM STRENGTH PACKAGE

You cannot execute an exercise without a tempo. The difference is how much you might have thought about it and - if you have thought about it - what kind of information is the foundation for your choice of tempo. Therefore, being able to assign the best tempo (or TCR structure, as we call it) greatly enhances the effect of your training programs.
