Your muscle building potential depends largely on how well you can direct tension through your muscles. If your mind-muscle connection isn’t strong you’ll struggle to make progress regardless of how you train or what equipment you use.
The good news is improving your muscle tension skills will improve your results even if your routine isn’t perfect or you’re using old equipment.
In this video, I give you some tips on how to improve the tension skills in your lats. Turning on your lats can make a big difference in every upper body exercise you do, from push ups to curls. Unfortunately, years of sitting can take their toll making for a weak back in even the most hardcore athlete. The good news is it doesn’t take much to wake your lats back up and get them working to improve every muscle in your upper body.
