Is time under tension important?

Andrew 2 years ago in Workouts updated 2 years ago 3

I had a personal training class this past semester at school where time under tension was the main focus. My professor, a former strength and conditioning coach said that time under tension is best way to promote muscle growth. I was curious as to whether or not time under tension is as important as he and many others seem to claim.

I don't believe counting during the set is the way to go. The key is, go intense and lift controlled. I don't believe you can be intense when counting the time it takes to complete reps.

Thank you! That's what I've always thought
