Beyond Sets & Reps - Online Course

To the best of our knowledge, Beyond Sets & Reps is the only science based – yet very practical course – in existence that discuss periodization of repetition tempo.

In PART I (25-page manual, based on 57 scientific references) you will discover: 

  • The CRITICAL distinction that determines the effectiveness of slow speeds.

  • The tempos that create the greatest hormonal response.

  • How to emphasize the eccentric contraction with a FAST or a SLOW tempo.

  • The tempos that are best for strength development.

  • How to use an isometric pause to challenge the athlete/client to work harder in the concentric/lifting phase.

  • The tempos to use to maximize the stretch-shortening cycle effect and thus power.

  • Three ways to use ISOMETRIC contractions to improve DYNAMIC strength and speed.

  • How to use isometric contractions to increase blood flow through a muscle to improve recovery.

  • How to use co-contraction as an added source of resistance – useful in a situation without access to equipment.

  • The best tempo to use if an athlete/client has a minor injury.

  • The best tempo and contraction type that help beginners learn difficult movements faster.

  • A time-tested system that is more effective than regular dynamic training yet maximizes safety through the use of the power rack.

PART II (17-page manual + 21 video clips showing all the tempos) you will learn: 

  • To help clients be motivated for the tempo changes by learning WHY repetition tempo must be periodized.

  • Help clients get a great much better experience from tempo prescription by allowing them to feel, in their bodies rather than counting in their heads, form that easily fits into the written training program

  • To help both beginners and advanced athlete-clients to faster result by understanding how the ideal tempos differ based on training age.

  • Be able quickly pick the right tempo for a large variety of scenarios (hypertrophy, strength, etc.) from our three different Tempo Matrices
