Make a Mind Muscle Connection
How a mind-muscle connection will make your workouts more effective and help you get fit faster
Whether you’re doing crunches, working on an exercise machine, or weight training, it is very important for you to consciously make an effort to keep your muscles tight during the exercise. If you're working your abs, keep them tight during the crunches, planks, or Pilates! One effective method is to imagine a zipper from your pelvis all the way up to the chest. Keep that zipper zipped up!
