RS - that's what you should do. If you put "full" effort in going up, coming back down should be easy. My rule of thumb is that it should take the same amount of time (roughly) or slightly longer to jog back down as it did to run up. If you come down faster than you go up, (a) your recoveries aren't long enough and (b) you obviously aren't pushing the reps up hard enough.

Got something to say?
