What this means is how long it takes you to perform one repetition of whatever exercise you are doing. It can take you anywhere from 1/2 a second to 5 seconds to perform one repetition.
Not to say that you should be exact with each repetition, but you get the point. You can move through the repetition with different speeds on the eccentric part and also on the concentric part of the movement. In other words you can have a different tempo at which you lower the weight as opposed to raising the weight back up.

It seems like not much; however trying it will make you believe otherwise. Training at different tempos will leave you fatigued after your workout and will make the result come!
