the Negative Portion….slow and controlled
the Positive Portion….fast and Explosive

Exactly what that guy said.

For instance, during push ups:
When you go up, do it fast and exhale through your mouth.
When you go down, go slowly and inhale through your nose.

You should really do this for all exercises. The slow part is during the “resistant” part of whatever exercise you may be doing.
