  • HOME >> STRENGTH TRAINING >>NEGATIVE REPS

    Definition:
      A negative is when someone assist in lifting a weight about 20-40 percent more than an individual could lift. Once lifted, the individual slowly lowers the weight without help. Your muscles can generally handle more weight when lowering the weight than when you lift the weight. The idea behind negatives is to really fatigue the muscle.

      Negative reps are highly dangerous and can lead into overtraining. Beginners shouldn't try negative reps due to the muscle soreness they cause. No more than once every 6-8 weeks performing negatives.
