Time under tension is a principle in weight training where the muscles are kept under constant strain for a duration of 45 seconds or more. In this video I explain and show how to use this principle in your workouts.

Time under tension is a big part of the high intensity training (HIT) workouts in my book. Here’s the big thing about it, using time under tension you can spend less time working out and get even better results. Before I found this approach, I was spending 16+ hours per week in the gym. Once I combined this principle with proper diet, I got better results and spend 4 hours in the gym. Yeah, read that again…that’s 75% time savings with better results. After making this change, I went on to win back to back Master’s divisions (40 to 49 years old) on Muscle Beach
