The masters of strength train both mind and body

December 23, 2017

The brain is the most critical part of the body when it comes to strength. What we perceive as strength, or powerful muscle activation, actually begins with a thought, or neural trigger, that produces a volley of nerve impulses in the brain that travel to the muscle. The denser the thought, the denser the neural drive or activation to the muscle.

The masters of strength train these elements and harness their brain power to attain new heights in the weight room. The weaker athletes strictly train muscle.
