I don't understand.  Are these really slow reps?

Seated row: 85 lbs, 7.5 reps,  2:40 min
Chest Press: 85 lbs, 3.5 reps, 1:16 min  I had 2 false starts as I forgot to hit the timer. so fatiuged the muscle.
Bisept curl: 40 lbs, 3.5, 1:03 min
Shoulder press: 50 lbs, 2.2 reps, 1:08 min
Leg Press: 130 lbs, 7.1 reps, 2:30 min

note that my times to failure have increased or weight increased. signifying gain in muiscle strength.  most important is the time to failure, not neccessarily the reps.  I did decrease in bicept curl due to not having done it for 2 weeks.  You want to be within a 45 sec-2.5 min range, if exceed 2.5 min neet to up the weight.

yes about 10 sec per positive, 10 sec per negative. always to failure and hold at failure foe 2-3 sec.

go on you tube and search " body by science" or buy the book.

Just a quick education if you please? I'm confused about time to failure = strength gain? Wouldn't increase time to failure = increase in endurance?
