Mind to Muscle Connection - The Most Important Tip in Bodybuilding


If you are a Bodybuilder
 I have to say, The mind to muscle connection establishment is very important. The Mind to muscle connection or muscle mind connection is the process in which you become the muscle, you can feel the muscle being activated/working on, and it's a sign of doing good work, targeting the muscle efficiently to break it down effectively. People end up swinging weights and/or not targeting a particular muscle group right so having the mind to muscle connection will help with that.

 I'd say 99.9% of the bodybuilders mention Mind to muscle connection. Muscles can be large and small, sometimes targeting certain muscle groups can be hard because we're not thinking of it but we got to in order to grow that muscle. Performing certain exercises first can help with the establishment, posing is a great way to help create that connection as well, and fiddling around with angles, weights and tempo can help with the mind to muscle connection

When people are wanting results, you have to know what you are doing to the body. Working out is good enough but if you have that mind to muscle connection, your muscle building process will become much easier for you. I find that once you have the connection, you can break down the muscle much greater resulting in more growth. That is one of the main things I take into account when I'm working out, every time, is the mind to muscle connection. Sometimes I'll drop the establishment to keep driving the weights (essentially to boost my mental capacity) but having the strict form along with the connection is the key.

Achieving the Mind to Muscle Connection can help Bring up Lagging Muscles

Underdeveloped muscles that are hard to target can be trained effectively by having that mind to muscle connection. For example, rear delts (shoulder) are usually neglected, if you think about the 'rear delt' you can activate it. People tend to overtrain certain muscles such as the front delt overpowering the shoulder and sometimes limiting the activation for other particular muscles/or it stops the other muscle from being worked on, usually being neglected which leads to injuries..


Tips for Establishing a Mind to Muscle Connection


  1. Posing. Try posing, I believe it will help because when you are posing, you are activating that muscle to flex, it requires the thinking in order to do that. Now, once you are posing, try to engage your thinking to the muscle you want to think about. For example, bicep flex, think about the bicep and flex it, you will become aware of it.
  2. Touching The Muscle. Touching, slight touches to the muscle can help with mind to muscle connection. Sometimes we people forget about what we are thinking about and thinking to lift the weights, that's all but touching the muscle that you're wanting to work can help you think and focus on that muscle only. Try it out.
  3. Using lighter weights. I find this beneficial to activate the mind to muscle connection
  4. Stay hydrated
  5. Angles, hand-placements, Tempo: These are ideal to every bodybuilder - if you fiddle around with angles, tempo and what not, you can achieve a much greater/lesser of a connection.
  6. Flex before workout and after. I find this beneficial to continually feel the muscle connection, flex the muscle before, during and after your workout.

OMAD Conclusion (One Meal A Day)

My Conclusion on OMAD (One Meal A Day)@Delicatenutrition

Before I started OMAD, I had to think of why I was doing it. People saw benefits from eating once a day and I wanted to see results from it. OMAD is a 23:1 Ratio, meaning you only eat ONCE Per day. There's countless of benefits or reasons why people eat once a day. Some reasons are health benefits, eating restrictions, dieting, improving body fat burn (FAT LOSS) and much more. I wanted to perform OMAD to see if thus was true.

Wheelchair Weight Loss Tips   How to Lose Weight in a WheelchairFrom a Chubby Boy to Being a Shredded, 6 pack Abs, in A Wheelchair ♿I wasborn with a disease that put me in a wheelchair. Being a wheelchair user is hard to go about losing weight because we are limited, meaning, it is harder for us to get some type of physical exercise in depending on your condition.

In this day in age, a lot of people are going out to grab a quick meal, no biggie right? But those meals may contain a lot of unnecessary calories - packed with [excess] carbs, sugar, sodium, and more. With all these excessive additives, you're in the danger zone to gain weight.
