These are my top four favourite techniques to boost up my lifting when I get bored with my routine. They are all sound and proven techniques to boost mechanical tension, I decided to continue with my theme of printable definitions because you never know when these techniques will come up.
Regardless of whether you are a beginner at the gym or an advanced trainee, it is always important to become familiar with how diverse bodybuilding can be, this includes different ways of performing the exercises, all because consistency is the name of the game.
We have a brief overview of four techniques, these include: Time Under Tension (TUT) in the concentric, TUT in the eccentric, strengthening the mind/muscle connection through posing (or by external/internal queues), and by utilising the rest/pause technique.
These are all effective when utilised over a long period of time. In addition to these, more techniques include drop-sets and visualisation in order to achieve your physique-related goals. The list is endless and I will continue this series with more simplified fitness concepts.
With all of this in mind, I highlight that the mental game is one of consistency, hard work and motivation and that these techniques will help you regardless of your fitness level.
