Time Under Tension

Posted Mar 30, 2022

Do you want to get more out of your strength training workouts? Then try the revolutionary time under tension (TUT) technique. TUT refers to the length of time it takes you to move a weight from Point A to Point B in an exercise. An example of TUT is bicep curls. If you lift the weight up for three seconds and lower the weight down for three seconds, you will find it better engages your muscles and increases how well you can control the weight over time.

A problem many people run into during strength training is lifting the weight with reliance on momentum, which lowers your ability to engage your muscles correctly and increases your risk of injury. TUT is highly encouraged if you are new to lifting or if you have pre-existing injuries or limitations. Use TUT if you want to maximize your muscle and joint strength with stability.
