People often complain that their workouts don’t seem to be producing any results. And there are some who claim that they train hard at the gym for an hour or so but are fresh enough to train another two hours! How does one achieve results? The answer lies in the ‘mind-muscle link.’

When you concentrate on the target muscle while training, you feel the impact of the movement on your muscle fibres. The brain signals the muscle to recruit as many fibres as possible, which makes the exercise productive. When you train intensively, you will not be able to work out for more than an hour.

Training long and training hard are inversely proportional. The idea is to focus on the ‘mind-muscle link’ and train hard. Your body will respond straightaway.
