I joined a new gym, 15 bucks a month as I also pay a personal trainer and have to watch my funds.

The highest free weight is only 30 pounds. For my bent over rows for example, I normally use 55lbs with the trainer.

My question is this. If I tense my muscles and never let the tension off and keep the motion real slow will that be just as beneficial as lifting the 55lb weight.

Or, should I concentrate on high reps for the gym and do the heavier weight with the trainer.
