DIS-TANZ DIARY #24
BACK TO THE GYM (PT. II)
Jul 21, 2021 in DIS-TANZ-SOLO
This article is intended as a follow-up to DIS-TANZ DIARY #22: BACK TO THE GYM. Whereas the before mentioned part was mainly about presenting my current training plan, the focus will now be on giving an overview of which muscles are trained by which exercises.
Many of the exercises presented here, particularly those involving free weights, involve additional muscles that help stabilize the body or support the work of the primary muscles, but I will limit my graphics to those that are specifically targeted by the respective exercises.
For me personally, it is a very helpful element in my workout to be able to visualize, sense and thus better activate the individual muscles. Ultimately, this leads to what is called the mind-muscle connection in strength training: a conscious, intentional and emphasized muscle contraction that is the key to achieving better gains in the long run.
