The power of the mind cannot be measured. It’s an underestimated facet of the body that people do not take into account when doing things that daunt them.
In addition to the weight training I do throughout the week, I complete a rigorous routine that all reroutes and leads up to the mind, emanating from the mind, reinforcing the idea of training the body as well as training the mind. Confused? Don’t be.
All training should be meant to keep muscle (all muscles, including respiration ones) as strong as we can so they can protect our joints from excessive force damage but also create whatever movements we need to execute in life. When you train how like that, the muscles that are being used are contracting as fast as they can. I try to create the most amount of force I willingly can each time. So the picture in my head when I do simulation compounds was that I had a 115 pound barbell and was trying to curl it for a minute. It would take the same amount of intensity and recruitment mentally to accomplish that.
The whole reason I am writing about this is to speak up about how you do not need weight to elicit a response in your body. You can get and will get very, very strong and powerful with nothing more than your mind and determination. So, the movement is for biceps, triceps, abdominals, lower back, hamstrings, feet and pretty much every muscle in one’s body has tow ork together in order to accomplish a move done in the mentioned fashion. What will end up happening is because of all the movement at the greatest joint angle a person can handle. Joint problems, if present, will disappear or at least be relieved. In my opinion there is no such thing as joint wear and tear as we age. It’s our muscles inability to absorb force that allows force to go where it is not designed to be absorbed like ligaments, vertebrae and joints.
How I look is 80% from my eating and lifestyle. This training is so I am able to absorb the forces of life to prevent injury and do whatever I feel like doing without a problem.
As for looking ridiculous, I’d do it in public in excessively awkward movements just to have ample opportunity to tell people to fuck off.
Pardon the language.
