In the end, you get to where your psyche can read the input your muscles are giving, and your muscles can respond to the jolt your brain is giving. Work on posturing between sets or at whatever time. What’s more, feel your muscles working all through your sets. Inevitably, your brain and muscles will talk the same dialect and convey forward and backward”.
