The fitness industry is full of knowledgeable, driven individuals. So it seems suiting that people turn to reading blogs to get good fitness advice. Now, which topic to choose from. I decided to choose a topic that I feel is extremely important, focus.
Now you ask why focus? When I say focus I mean that in all aspects of your fitness goals. Whether it be in your training, or your daily life and in eating your meals.
There have been many times where I will get to the gym and just go through the motions. Yes I am getting a lift in but am I really concentrating on the muscles that I’m working? It’s not all about lifting as heavy as you can. My favorite lifts are the ones with not the heaviest weight, but heavy enough to where I can do negatives, aka Eccentric training. Eccentric training is my favorite way to train, and it takes full focus to do so. You have to really to listen to your body and concentrate on the muscle group you are working. An example of negatives, controlling the weight at a slow pace as you return to starting position in a bicep curl.
