Ponder this quote...

This quote was from the early 1900's by none other than the great Eugen Sandow. A true pioneer in Physical Culture training/lifestyle.

"You may go through the list of exercises with dumbbells a hundred times a day, but unless you fix your mind upon those muscles to which the work is applied, such exercise will bring but little, if any, benefit. If, upon the other hand, you concentrate your mind upon the muscles in use, then immediately development begins." Eugen Sandow

Really think about this… Now think about yourself and how you train.. 

Do you truly know the intricate details of what and how your training?


Do you really understand how the entire body from head to toe is supposed to operate together in said movements you do?

Do you understand the stimulus you are trying to apply in each practice session? If so, do you understand what science has taught us about the appropriate recovery from each specific stimulus? 

Being healthy, getting strong, lean, improving performance, etc. are about appropriate stimulus being applied and the principles of said stimulus being honored. Far to many are exercising to often, to intense, to mindless for all the wrong reasons. If you want to get lean then send the correct stimulus to your body with proper nutrition, rest, and general light activity. If you want to get stronger than pick your exact goal, choose the appropriate stimulus you wish to use and honor the scientific principles that go along with it. Don't try to cheat yourself or science. This doesn't leave you healthy and strong, yet broken and weak while full of torturous stories in the end. Learn, create, test. retest. and grow as a human being in the process. 

Weak Patterns? | Mindful Practice Is Needed!

Here is a great post on www.strengthsenei.com – Click to read entire article

I wanted to post a few lines from this article as I feel it answers a ton of questions. I know for fact many of my guys are going to really understand why I always talk about being mindful during training, and the major differences between what I/We/#Greenstrength and others constantly preach. Again, we do the same exercises, same correctives, same food choices as everyone else blah blah – the difference is we mindfully encourage you to search for the ‘perfect practice’ as mentioned below. So enjoy and let these lines sink in and you’ll understand one of the many #Greenstrength differences from the rest of the modern fitness world.

“Just for a second, let’s say your athlete presents with postural imbalances. His right shoulder is low, his pelvis is rotated and his left knee buckles in.

Considering that an individual’s postural response is involuntary, in that context, performing corrective exercises means compensation will be a component of every repetition.

Performing a corrective exercise incorrectly does not make much sense. As they say, practice does not make perfect, perfect practice makes perfect.

Proprioception is derived from the muscle’s capacity to inform the nervous system where a limb is at all times. When muscles are shortened and some are lengthened as a result of these postural imbalances, the sensitivity of the muscle receptors decreases. This results in a loss of feedback for where the limbs are positioned. This is what a reduction in proprioception comes down to.

Less proprioception = less sensation = less performance! It’s very difficult to control and move what you don’t feel.”

Be Mindful in your practice and movement!
