Ah. Quads will never fit in those. Sugar cane 1947s forever, they even have a small waist for their size

In bodybuilding is mind muscle connection and fast eccentric slow concentric really important? Or is that just on lame machines?

Mind muscle connection is probably the most important thing in bodybuilding.

Well I can grab like 50lb dbs and flail around trying to get them to my shoulder height or I can use 15-20 and actually work my delts. Making the muscle you want to grow work is probably important for growing it.

Its a controversial topic, but I think there's some merit to it.

 

Mind muscle connection is about learning to work the right muscles for a lift. To actually utlize the lats in a dumbbell row, not just the arms and front delts, or to push a squat with your legs instead of reverting to a good morning and thus turning what for a bodybuilder should be a leg intensive lift to a lower back movement. You target growth in the muscle the lift is primarily supposed to work.

 

Time under tension is just about accumulating higher metabolic stress, damage to the muscles, in a given time frame (like a set or a whole workout).

 

 

Both are good tools in powerlifting as well.

 

On smaller accessory lifts where the goal is to cause hypertrophy, not directly work the numbers big 3 or versions of them, I believe you should focus on strict form and to work the right muscles. Like on lat-pulldowns, I don't go balls to the wall and swing my whole body just to pull more weight. If just hypertrophy is the goal, its enough to work with a moderately heavy load and perform it strict with the muscles its intended for, like pulling th bar down with mostly the lats, not with a huge swing.

 

Higher time under tension in powerlifting can be used to teach you which angles are the best for you in a lift so your technique gets better. If you do a 8 sec negative on squats, you have more control where to put your body in its best positions and you are going to do the movement as efficient as you can so you don't waste any energy on movements that make the lift harder. For instance, if you have a tendency to shift the weight to your toes on squats, a very slow negative can teach you to control yourself to keep the weight evenly on the foot and sit back. 

 

Slow concentrics (positives or up) can teach you to push with equal force through the whole lift and to grind better. Some people sort of relax efter they get past their sticking point in a lift. By forcing yourself to have equally slow speed on the way up, say a 4 sec concentric bench, you can't bounce or just speed through the sticking point and then cruise to lockout.

Right at around 2000. The progress just over the last week has been insane. I'm getting ab veins all over the place and my legs have really leaned out. Can't wait to see what I look like after a carb up and dried out.

Sorry to derail the thread (too late, I know), coldsnap, maybe because I don't have enough posts I can't PM? Anyways it was about an expired classified listing of yours. I tried resending my original message. If you don't get it maybe you can try to send me a PM and I'll reply.

Carry on..
