If I do my reps slower, will it have a similar effect to increasing resistance?
With respect to building muscles or improving max strength for example?
Assume I go to failure / same level of fatigue in both cases.
Example: In my current pull exercise, with the highest resistance, I can do 20 reps. I can continue to increase reps, but over time I want to increase resistance (with less reps). So I am thinking I could do it slower, with some of the same effects as high resistance.
If it is "effective" is not really the question, more if it works similar to high resistance vs high rep.
