Curious question too...

When lifting heavy, you are more likely to take longer (at least I am) with each rep. Using bench for example, if I put up 135 x 10 I can do explosive reps where total TUT is 1-2 seconds, but when I bench 170 x 5 its somewhere in the 8-10 second range, especially when pushing (I control the weight down and then it takes me a good 5-6 seconds to get it back up, especially on last reps).

Are you still achieving adequate TUT for growth, or is it more "volume" (set # x rep #) related
