Often we think about including more isolated movements at the END of our workouts.
And while a great burnout can include moves like bicep curls and tricep extensions, you also want to START your workouts with more isolated movements.
But the isolation moves you START your workout with will be focused on improving your mind-body connection!
By improving your ability to more efficiently and effectively recruit the correct muscles when you lift, you can not only help yourself AVOID INJURY, but actually improve muscle hypertrophy from your workouts aka IMPROVE YOUR MUSCLE GAINS!
This is partly because it allows you to use a muscle more effectively and efficiently and partly because it is linked with one of 3 drivers of muscle growth - metabolic stress.
So what is the mind-body connection?
