Re: Tip of the Week: Learning to contract your abdominals
I also want to mention that the first time i learned about the posterior tilt i could not do one lying leg raise without my hips comming up so don't be surprised if you can't get 1 full rep yet, keep working at it!
"The truth Iíve discovered is that you donít have to lift enormous weights to grow muscle. By using stricter form, slower negatives, and stretching between sets you can get an incredible pump in all your workouts. Numbers are an abstraction, especially to muscles. Your body doesnít know the absolute weight of what you lift, it only recognizes how heavy it feels. The secret is to make lighter weights feel heavier. " - Frank Zane
"Sacrifice: To give up, destroy, renounce, and surrender your ego, excuses, bad habits, fears, and your couch - in the belief of an ideal or pursuit of a worthy goal."
