Making A "Mind-Muscle" Connection

Thinking about your muscle contractions while you are lifting will help you maximize your workouts.
When working out it is always important to think about the targeted muscle group that you are working on. For example, when doing a bicep curl, think and focus on the movement of the bicep as you are curling the dumbbell up. By concentrating on the specific muscle group that you are working, you will be able to isolate and develop that muscle group faster.You can practice this without weights by moving your arm in a curl or kickback by flexing your muscle as you move your arm in a concentric or eccentric movement.
