I watched this video with Arnold Schwarzenegger today where he shared some of his thoughts on working out.
And there’s one thing that really resonated with me:
You can watch the entire interview (it’s well worth it) or just skip forward to the section where he talks about this at 7 minutes 30 seconds into the video.
I think that the biggest mistake is that you go to the gym, and you go through the motions. But you don’t really have your mind inside the muscle.
And also you have to feel it. The key thing is that you visualize it, but you have to feel the muscles. That’s the key thing because then they grow.
