What is Exercise Tempo?
Exercise tempo is the speed or pace at which any given exercise is performed. The speed is usually indicated with RPM which stands for Repetitions Per Minute, i.e. the total number of reps to performed per minute at a steady pace. Performing 20 reps in the first 30 seconds and then 10 reps in the next 30 seconds for a 30RPM is not a steady pace. Yes, the reps per minute were achieved, but at a steady pace.
