When you’re training for hypertrophy/muscle gain, it can be more effective to focus on training the muscles instead of training the movements.
This way, we’re more concerned with mind-muscle connection and targeting the muscles we’d like to shape or grow.
This is great news whether you train at a gym or at home, as you typically won’t need as much weight and you can get a great workout with less equipment.
This video delves into how to train the muscles – what cues to focus on and other key pieces of info.
So, if you’re training at your gym and they don’t have a specific piece of equipment or if it’s taken, you’ll be able to come up with alternative exercises quickly.
