Time can be your best gym partner if you learn how to use it right

Time under tension (TUT) is the time your muscles are in a particular position, or under tension, while you are training

Whether it is rest between exercises, how long you perform an isometric hold, or do a time trial while running, use a stopwatch for TUT

Any exercise has 3 phases: concentric or contraction of the muscle, isometric or the hold at the most difficult part, and eccentric or return to the starting position

There are multiple ways of using TUT, and you can choose where you want to introduce it in an exercise

Add TUT to incline bench press, leg extensions, slow push-ups and overhead pulldowns

TUT will teach you more about your body and help you challenge yourself
