    “Feeling” is one of the most important components of training for physique. No matter what gym you go to, you will have seen someone doing a bicep curl, for example, with little regard for proper technique or knowledge of what they are doing. They are just trying to heave as much weight as possible, shouting and screaming, and paying little or no attention to the exercise. Success in body-building however comes from the muscular contraction. It is both the key and the secret. If you don’t FEEL the muscle, you can’t grow the muscle.

    It's 5.30 pm and it’s Winter. Seems like the middle of the night, right? It is dark and dismal, temperatures are in the low numbers and so is motivation. Even the most fanatically fitness-minded amongst us are struggling to get up for getting up out of our chairs. And if you can’t get excited about the prospect of moving your toned ass, what are the chances of your clients being incentivised?
