By Billy Polson

Do you find yourself doing the same exercises at the same speed and never getting stronger or showing improvement? Our bodies are incredible smart in how they adapt to stimuli, so the same stimulus over and over will lead to a quick plateau in your training. In this video, RealJock super trainer Billy Polson talks about the benefits of changing the tempo of your exercises and how this can help you gain strength and muscle mass, while also increasing your functional strength in both sports and daily living.
