Fit Tip #7

How  can you make sure to effectively work the muscle or muscle group you are targeting? Get a mental  image of the muscle and its movement pattern. Focus on how the movement is supposed to go, and the
mental image will translate to you doing it right. For example, if you are doing a lat pull down, position yourself in a slightly leaned-back position, grip the handles, brace your core, and visualize your lats
pulling down and toward your spine. This will help you to engage the big back muscles first, and then the smaller helper muscles such as the biceps, shoulders and teres major. Picture it perfect!
