Reps: Technical vs. Live

The goal of a technical rep is to go as slow as possible with the intention of getting every detail solid, piece by piece. This process can obviously take time, as we’re teaching ourselves correct body mechanics from the inside out.

Live reps are done at sparring speed AFTER you’ve spent time researching efficient technique and have the body mechanics down via technique oriented reps above.

I probably wouldn’t assign any number or time oriented figures to technical training. If anything you want to get as few reps in as possible.

Once you feel you have a decent understanding though, it makes sense to challenge yourself with time and numbers provided good form is maintained throughout the movement.
