Full Video Movie Why building the mind muscle connection is important to any sportsperson bodybuilder or gym goer 2420981 and Full Free Online 6902099 Save to drive 3341054 times. Many of us are becoming serious gym lovers and whether it be to get ready for upcoming shows or just to stay healthy for your friends and family, looking down the road is something most aren’t thinking about. Many dudes walk in to the gym, completely cold, throw 225 on the bar and get about 3 reps on bench press and repeat about 5 or 6 times. Building strength does have a time and place, but to really get results and keep getting them for years to come, your form has to be perfect and the mind-muscle connection must be there as well.
The best advice is for the strength-gaining portion should only last a couple weeks out of the year and make sure your caloric intake is high enough to support these heavy compound lifts.
A lot of workout programs call for different amounts of volume whether it be training every body part once or twice a week or even three or four full-body workouts. We’ve all heard that getting enough rest is crucial to helping your body grow and recover but how many actually get the full 8 hours we really do require?
So if you can only get 6 hours of sleep, be sure to get that much every night then so your CNS can also get into a routine. There’s the bench press, the squat and the deadlift: those three exercises are great compound movement that will help you build mass but can also wreak havoc on your joints, bones and posture if not alternated with other auxiliary lifts. For example, when focusing heavily on the bench press, the shoulders can roll forward and kill your form and posture.
Like Newton’s First Law of Motion states, “An object at rest will stay at rest and an object in motion will stay in motion”. The mind body connection exists, and a recent study by Bishopa€™s University proved that mental training can significantly improve the performance of athletes in training.
Building Muscle StrengthJust by Using Your MindSounds like one of those too-good-to-be-true claims, we thought.
To be mindful is to nourish awareness of the present moment; to be tuned-out of the "automatic pilot" trance of life.
Meditation is the act of "intentionally paying attention, to a particular object for a particular purpose" (41). Different forms of meditation, for the most part, have not been shown to produce different results. Mindfulness-based eating awareness training (MB-EAT) has been successful in “decreasing binge episodes, improving one’s sense of self-control with regard to eating, and diminishing depressive symptoms.” As I talked about in my Tips to Eat Less article, some of us lose awareness of our satiety cues, so we eat beyond what it takes to fill us up.
There are a multitude of studies highlighting mindfulness meditation's effectiveness in treating anxiety and depression.
Five weeks of meditation was found to be as effective as pharmaceutical drugs in treating anxiety symptoms (10). Specific meditation exercises such as loving-kindness meditation or compassion meditation have been revealed through neuroimaging studies to increase activation of brain regions involved in emotional processing and empathy.
A study of 553 undergraduates concluded that mindfulness promotes physical and psychological health in college students (28, 34).
Note: not all studies supported meditation’s ability to increase awareness of the inner body.


The default mode network (DMN) encompasses the regions in your brain that are active when you are not focused on the external environment - you are "inside your head" envisioning the future, recalling memories, or letting your imagination run wild. On the other hand, your executive mode network (EMN) encompasses the parts of your brain that are active during goal-oriented activity or when you need to take action. One study found that the default and executive modes were both recruited when mind wandering, suggesting that mind wandering is a peculiar mental state which allows networks that normally operate in opposition to work together (5). Mind wandering is defined as “engaging in cognitions unrelated to the current demands of the external environment.” In other words, shifting attention away from the primary task at hand. It was found that experienced meditators had stronger neural connectivity between the “posterior cingulate, dorsal anterior cingulate, and dorsolateral prefrontal cortices,” which are regions in the brain associated with self-monitoring and cognitive control (12). Meditators were shown to have greater coupling within the medial prefrontal cortex area (even when not meditating!), suggesting that long term meditation leads to lasting changes in brain regions related to attention (13). 8 weeks of mindfulness meditation has shown to improve connectivity within auditory and visual networks of the brain that reflects improved “attentional focus, enhanced sensory processing, and reflective awareness of sensory experience” (37).
According to the University of Hong Kong, stressors don’t cause tension themselves, rather stress results from our perception and reaction to these stressors. A fascinating study conducted by the Department of Psychiatry at the University of California San Francisco, suggests that mindfulness meditation can slow the rate of cellular aging by reducing stress. Ask any professional bodybuilder, and they will preach to you the importance of the mind-muscle connection. 44 college students (30 women) with sexual dysfunction underwent a 12-week mindfulness meditation course. Mindfulness meditation leads to changes in how you deal with life events (your attitude), and thus your character.
A cool study showed that both yoga and mindfulness meditators experienced a significant decrease in the magnitude of optical illusions compared to non-meditators. When you catch yourself absorbed in thought, don't judge yourself or react emotionally - just calmly return awareness back to your breath.
This does not mean meditation shouldn't be relaxing - it should induce a relaxation response.

To make fitness more of a lifetime movement rather than a mid-20’s fad, follow these 5 tips to help take care of your body and stretch out your fitness career (to some degree) for the rest of your life. What people fail to realize is what kind of havoc this is wreaking on your joints, tendons and bones when not lifting the weight properly and without properly warming up. Then focus on varying rep ranges to help ensure you never becomes stagnant and hit plateaus. Whether you’re an intense CrossFitter or even just an every day gym goer, taking time to recover is something that you must always listen to and follow. Since it’s physically not possible with those that hold full-time jobs and have families, making sure to get into a routine then becomes the most important thing. Same thing applies when actually hitting the gym – when your regimen calls for a high volume type of workout listen and respond to do a little less when serious fatigue starts to set in. If you’re following a plan to increase your strength on any of these core lifts or other compound lifts, be sure to provide movement in your routine that counter-act these types of movement as well as those that encourage it.
By ensuring that you’re able to use a full range of motion in a safe matter will ultimately lead to greater muscle gains and greater contractions because of the elasticity of the muscles. But researchers at Bishop's University in Quebec recently conducted a study* which indicated that mental training alone could increase muscle strength.The two-week study took 30 male university athletes and divided them into three groups.

Frequency of meditation has the greatest impact on well-being, rather than the type of meditation. In a study of treatment-seeking smokers, mindfulness actually reduced neural activity in the craving-related region of the brain (shown through MRI scans). Emotions are your subjective (mental) interpretation of whatever physiological (physical) response you are feeling within your body. Meditation may prove useful in strengthening our “emotional muscles” (20), it has specifically shown to enhance empathy (24). One study found no evidence that meditators were superior to nonmeditators in detecting their heartbeat at rest (32). This model suggests there are four divisions to the cognitive cycle: mind wandering, awareness of mind wandering, shifting of attention, and sustained attention (4).
The DMN is active during mind wandering, which is often experienced intermittently during sustained attention tasks (4, 6).
The EMN is active when shifting attention from mind wandering, and during sustained attention (4). Activation in both the default mode and executive network regions was strongest when subjects had no awareness (they lacked meta-awareness) that their mind was wandering (5).
When your mind wanders, your performance in the primary task will suffer and your perception of the external environment will not be as realistic (i.e. Disengaging attention from your sensory perception is referred to as perceptual decoupling, and being aware of your consciousness is known as meta-awareness. Compared to a control group, the meditators saw changes in gray matter concentration in brain regions “involved in learning and memory processes, emotion regulation, self-referential processing, and perspective taking” (33)! Mindfulness accounts for changes in mood and perceived stress, which improve sleep quality (27). What better way to alter our perception and reaction than to meditate mindfully and remain present to the moment? Telomeres are protective caps at the ends of chromosomes, and their length has been related to chronic stress and depression (14).
At the end of the trial, female participants showed significant improvement in their physiological response to sexual stimuli, their self-judgment, and anxiety, all of which are psychological barriers to healthy sexual functioning (15). It takes a great deal of discipline and willpower to continue a habit (especially a mental one) during the initial beginning period of a couple weeks, where you might not see immediate results.
If you’re one that can really only handle one workout per body part per week, just make sure you’re pushing it to the limit knowing that’s the only chance at making that chest grow this week or the only chance you get at squatting this week.
Things like getting enough rest and altering your workout by being wise enough to listen and respond to your body is what will separate your young and dumb gym time from you being able to lift and run when you’re retired. This physical "re-wiring" of your brain increases attention, focus, and concentration, as well as reduces stress and cortisol levels, improves sexuality and mood states, slows aging, enhances empathy, improves emotional intelligence, as well as treats addiction, anxiety, and depression.
The more days per week you meditate, the greater mindfulness and lower stress you produce (23). This suggests that mindfulness can help reduce other cravings – such as sweets and other unhealthy, fattening foods (2)!
The greater your awareness, the more “in sync” your subjective and physiological experience of the emotion is. When viewed from a mindful state, the emotional intensity perceived from the stimuli was reduced.


Think of when you catch yourself daydreaming in class or work - your DMN is especially active.
Research has shown that perceptual decoupling hinders your ability to process sensory information (8). Sometimes your mind might wander for over 10 minutes before you snap back to reality, and other times you’ll catch yourself after only a minute or two (8). Gray matter routes sensory stimuli to the central nervous system to create a response to the stimulus (38).
The mind-muscle connection is your ability to efficiently recruit the desired body part through the entire range of motion of the specific exercise.
At first meditating with open eyes can be too distracting, so if you are a beginner meditator, I recommend practicing with your eyes closed first, and then gradually work towards meditating with open eyes. A study of 48 university students found that meditating in a mindful state resulted in more insight. But if you remain patient and persist in engraining the habit into your daily routine, the habit will become automatic.
To work the muscle properly, the mind-muscle connection has to be the most important thing to focus on. At the end of the study, the group doing the physical exercises had increased its strength by 28.3%, which is not surprising. The past is simply memories of previous present moments, and the future is anticipated present moments.
Positive results have been observed on the short-term: a two-week meditation experiment resulted in a significant decrease in resting pulse rate and blood pressure (systolic, diastolic, and mean arterial bp) (1). The study concluded that “long-term practice of mindfulness leads to emotional stability by promoting acceptance of emotional states and enhanced present-moment awareness” (29). Those who practice meditation are more aware of when their mind is wandering, and are better able to shift their attention to the task at hand and sustain that attention. The main nodes of the default mode network were found to be relatively deactivated in experienced meditators (12, 29). So, when a thought completely independent of the immediate external environment arises, your ability to interpret sensory information pertaining to that environment is weakened.
Good news is, you can improve your meta-awareness through mindful meditation; mindfulness meditation improves your ability to concentrate (22).
A mindfulness-based meditation program has shown to decrease stress in low-income older adults, who deal with stressors such as growing older, physical pain, financial strains, and having grandchildren with significant hardships (be it mental, legal, physical, or financial) (30).
You can meditate standing, seated, or on the floor (in an "indian-style", cross-legged position). The percentage of alpha waves (indicative of mental relaxation) was negatively correlated with insight (16). The present moment can be painful and dreary, so we look to the future or past in avoidance of the present.
Mindfulness meditation is purposefully paying attention (to the breath) for no other reason than to be completely present to the moment. They are conscious of the emotion as it is happening and are better able to interpret what emotion it is that they are experiencing.
For example, thinking about surfing while in math class will handicap your ability to grasp the mathematical concepts. With enhanced focus and a greater ability to stay present to the moment, your mind-muscle connection will improve. It's important to get comfortable within the first minute of meditating and "lock in" that position; so if ten minutes into meditating you start to feel uncomfortable, ignore the urge to change your posture.
Yoga and Tai-Chi are actually forms of meditation, and these movement-based meditations can increase mindfulness (27). Meditation reduces stress, which in turn decreases the body’s level of the stress hormone cortisol (your worst enemy for making gains). The more you meditate, the less your mind will wander, and the longer you'll be able to focus on your breath without becoming distracted.
At some point during a good set the muscles will likely burn or become sore to some degree. For the sake of this article, mindfulness meditation will refer to a simple breathing meditation (which will be explained further at the end of the article).
Eventually, you might slip into a very peaceful, zen-like state of no thought - which makes all the practice worth it! And Core Sports Performance, an audio hypnosis program from The Hypnosis Network, is by far the most thorough, professional, and effective program on the market.
The goal is not to achieve a state of no-thinking, the goal is to be continually aware of the present moment and react mindfully. Focusing on the muscle you are working is called making a mind-to-muscle connection, and it can boost the results of any exercise.
Mind muscle connection describes a synergy between your brain and your muscles – meaning that you are much more aware of how your muscles are functioning, much more focussed on the movements you are making, and strongly in tune with how effective your workouts are.
It is the power of the mind – more specifically, the state of the mind – that directly reflects what happens to our bodies.
While many of us accept this truth – that there is something to be said for “mind over matter,” or the impact our thoughts have on our realities, including our bodies – many of us fail to use our minds to the best of their abilities when it comes to our workouts.
Focus on form: Lose weight and build calorie-burning muscle by learning proper form for every exercise. Focus on targeted muscles: It’s possible that you are wasting energy by tensing muscles other than the ones you are targeting.
Work only the areas you are targeting at that moment and relax any areas not related to the exercise.
Controlling the Heart Rate through Breathing:  To control the heart rate when working out, breathe in for six seconds, hold your breath for a couple of seconds then breathe out for seven seconds. If you have practiced yoga, you may be familiar with the idea that focusing on breath can connect the mind and body. Concentrating on breathing clears distractions from the brain and releases tension that may stop muscles from working efficiently. Focus on visualization: When the brain focuses on an image – say visualizing toned biceps – it sends a message to the corresponding muscle to increase in mass.
When you practice visualization and combine it with training, you will surprise yourself with the shocking result.
If you have never worked out before, commit to 10 or 15 minutes on a treadmill or doing the Shape up Size down Beginners Workout. These small steps are not difficult to achieve and will keep you motivated!Related Post Take Care Of Your Heart Big Muscles..
