A few weeks ago Kate Dainton and I did a Kinetic Link Training (KLT) Class at FIX. Half of the session was done with resistance bands. With the resistant bands and the dumbbells, we learnt about Time Under Tention. (TUT) The running physio explains it here.
From the Running Physio on Facebook.
From Aug 12,
Strength training for distance runners isn’t always just about heavy loads. One way to progress and further strength is through the concept of ‘time under tension’ (TUT)
👉🏻TUT refers to how long a muscle is under strain with a given repetition of an exercise)🏃♂️🏃♀️
📎Research has shown that greater time under tension can increase muscle protein synthesis*
_�Here’s Blake slowing down his Bulgarian split squats (2-3s down, 2-3s up i.e. 4-6s per rep). Exercises can be performed as slowly as 6s concentric phase and 6s eccentric phase (i.e. total 12s per rep-this is very hard!)💪🏻👟
📌TAKE HOME: if you have reached a cap in how heavy of resistance you can push try slowing down your repetitions to seek more strength gains, or incorporate TUT principles into your training while you are building up to being able to perform 3-4 sets of 8reps (ideal for strength training for runners)
