Mindful Reps/Training Making that connection between your brain and muscle(s) is everything when you’re training. Being mindless and flying through reps is just a waste of your time and doesn’t benefit the muscle that you’re trying to stimulate. Your muscle only responds to the mechanical stress that it's under. Here are a few tips to keep in mind the next time you hit the gym... Visualize the rep before you execute it. It only takes a second to see it in your mind’s eye. Create as much tension throughout your entire body when you’re executing said exercise. Time under tension + Perfect Form =‘s The Dream Rep. If you can’t maintain that tension stop what you’re doing to prevent injury. Fall in love with the “eccentrics.” For example, when you’re doing a push-up go as slow as you can from the top down. You can apply this to every exercise. Be a little schizophrenic and talk to yourself during every rep. I like to always have a mini-checklist I like to run through like a pilot. ie when squatting you should always tell yourself, "maintain a neutral spine, braced abs, knees tracking over your toes, and sit back into your hips." Scary part is I could go on all day about this one movement. When you’re mindful your workouts will FLY by. You won’t have to peek at the clock and think, “OMG, I still have 30 mins left😜!” Being mindful is one surefire way to combat Father Time. Put in the good fight and charge hard friends!

I recently hit my breaking point while I was on a vacation with my family down in Florida. This happens literally every time I leave my gym in Charlotte, NC and I'm forced to get a decent workout in either the hotel gym or a commercial gym near the hotel. Unfortunately...
