Maximize Muscle Tension
There are two ways to make a muscle stronger. One is to make
it bigger; the other is to make it contract harder. Whenever you do
an exercise, be sure to maximize tension from head to toe: Grip the
floor with your toes, flex your quads (pretend you’re pulling your
kneecaps up), squeeze your glutes, and brace your abs like you were
going to take a punch to the stomach. Try to crush the bar (or whatever
implement you’re holding). This ensures maximal tension and thus
maximal strength development. It will also greatly reduce the injury
risk of whatever you are doing.
Have a GREAT weekend SPARKERS!!!!!!!!
