ECCENTRIC vs CONCENTRIC : WHAT SCIENCE HAS TO SAY ?🏋️‍♂️

> Eccentric Contraction: It's the motion of the working muscle while it's lengthening under load.
> Concentric Contraction: It's the motion of the working muscle while it shortens.

> Increasing the intensity of the workout at the eccentric phase can result in better hypertrophy (Increase in muscles mass) compared to concentric phase.

> Increasing the intensity of the workout at the eccentric phase can result in better eccentric and concentric strength gain, where as in case of concentric, the eccentric strength gain is not much significant.

> Take away: Try increasing the intensity of workout during eccentric phase, either by increasing the load or go slow to increase the time under tension.
