You Need to Feel To Learn

When I first started lifting, way back in 1996, I had no idea what I was doing.

I knew that I had to push, that’s about it.

As time went on, I had to learn what each movement was supposed to feel like, I had to grow the mind muscle connection.

In Jiu-Jitsu a few weeks ago, I was going with a black belt named Tony, super nice guy.

We were working on a different kind of choke and part of how I use the feel to learn is I let the other guy go until the tipping point, meaning just before I would black out. It helps me to learn what the movement is supposed to feel like.

But, when you learn to connect your mind and body more, you need to go slow with things.

In the weight room, drop the poundage and get the movement right. It’s much more mentally taxing but at the same time, much more mentally engaging.
