The beginning stage of this exercise requires you to do things at a pace that is slow to the count of 10 seconds The first phase of an exercise is done to a slow count of 10 seconds. Then when you go on the second part where the efforts required are more and are against gravity you will need to reach the maximum tension point or MTP as it is called for about 2 seconds. After holding this you need to revert to starting position slowly taking about 10 seconds.
