About the Workout
We lift weights slowly. It sounds weird, but it’s effective. The slow burn method reduces the forces that commonly cause injury to your joints, muscles, and connective tissue, making it a safe workout for everyone.
Slow lifting also reduces momentum, requiring your muscles to do more of the work. The result? A more efficient workout, leading to a stronger, fitter you in half the time.
