I thing tempo related to both muscle motor unit treshold and number of it recruited. According to newtons law that f=m.a. For Ex, slow twitch muscle can't twitch quicly a heavy load, havier weight slower the muscle to accelerate. Obviously if we will work the targeted muscle, we have to pay attention to tempo.

My argument to ben would be train slow and the technique will be more perfected, the tempo's do keep the exercise correct. Regarding train fast and stay natural err our body's were not designed to lift weights so what is natural?? tut does work go ont to tnation.com
