The body will never fully respond
to your workouts until you understand how to train the mind as well.
There are a number of specific ways in which the power of the mind can
be harnessed to help you achieve your goals:
first step to have a clear vision of where you want to go, what you
want to achieve. Where the mind goes, the body will follow.
2.Visualization-you have to have a picture in
your mind of the kind of physique you need to build in order to achieve
your goals. When you look in the miror, you have to see yourself as
you are-and as you want to be as well. You have to see in your mind's
eye the masses of muscle you will be creating, the powerful physique
that is in your future. focusing on such images gives your mind and
body a well-defined goal to strive for.
3. Role Models-when you find somebody who represents
your ideal physique, study as many photos of him/her as you can tear
them out of magazines and put them up on the wall, tape them to the
refrigerator-whatever it takes to help keep your mind focused on the
4.Motivation-is the driving force that allows
you to develop a single-mindedness of purpose that ultimately gives
you the will to go into the gym for one or two hours a day and put yourself
through the best workouts possible.
5.Mind in the muscle-the key to success in your
workouts is to get the mind into the muscle , rather than thinking about
the weight itself. When you think about the weight instead of the muscle,
you can't really feel what the muscle is doing. You lose control. So
you end up not working to the limits of your range of motion, not contracting
and extending the muscle in a smooth, intense, controlled manner.
