Have you ever heard someone say, its all in your head! Well it really is. Your mind controls how your body moves and how effective those movements are. This can be achieved by concentrating enough on using that muscle group and making sure it’s doing all the work.
I had a client that after a heavy chest day his chest would never feel sore. He would say he mostly felt soreness in his arms. I’m like that’s impossible! We did chest! When I do chest I lift half the weight he lifting and I would also feel sore on my upper chest area. There was something he was not doing, that I clearly was. I told him to start focusing on using his chest muscles when doing chest workouts and using the mind to muscle connection as he was chest pressing instead of concentrating on his arms to push the weight.
If you don’t believe me. Give it a try, the next time you’re working out. Start lifting some weights and start day dreaming of laying at a beach somewhere sipping on a mojito. I guarantee you after 3 sets you won’t feel you did a thing. You’ve just wasted your time lol.
Now do the same exact workout, however this time focus on the muscle group you are working on with every single rep. Contract, release, contract, release and make sure to breathe! After 3 sets, I promise you you feel a difference. Guaranteed!
Mind to muscle connection is a real thing! Even I didn’t know it was so effective until I gave it a try after my boyfriend aka my swolemate introduce me to it.
So stop wasting your time at the gym! Stop thinking about the next paper thats due tomorrow that you haven’t even started, or about your next tropical vacation. Use your mind to lift some serious weights and make some awesome gains!
I hope this helped someone, and let me know if you feel a difference on your next workout!
