What is Muscle Failure?

fit20 UK

At fit20 the goal is to work out until you reach muscle failure and your cells are fatigued, failure = success!

Once you start on the machine you don’t stop to rest, it is one continuous repetition of 10 seconds up and 10 seconds down. This smooth continuous circle is done at a slow pace with no jerk or lock out. The goal is to remove any momentum so your muscles are doing 100% of the weight lifting!

This form of training removes the common high speed weight training injuries and reduces pressure on your joints from locking the movement at the top or bottom.

This circle movement intensifies and focuses the workout on the designated muscle group, you continue the repetition until you’ve fatigued every muscle cell and reached your limit! The last rep is the most important for muscle and strength growth.
