Muscle mind connection

Are you doing this?

Mind muscle connection is when you are really thinking about the muscle you are training, after all movement is controlled by the brain.

In a nutshell a signal is sent by the brain telling the muscle to contract (there is way more science to it). The more we can communication to a muscle the more muscle fibres we can recruit equaling a better contraction equally a better workout.

During a reps think about the muscle you are trying to contract, for example your bicep in a bicep curl.

You may find you lift less or do less reps, you may find you have more DOMs the next day. That’s ok. You will have to have a slower tempo than usual to. This is great for body weight exercise too.
It can totally change your workout and you will see strength and muscle gains you didn’t expect if you are consistent.
