Can you think yourself stronger? Some research suggests that we can.

Today I am going to talk about a study where researchers showed that people who just thought about lifting were able to prevent the loss in strength that came along with having their arm in a cast. The most remarkable part about if for me was that they measured muscle activity and made sure that the participants weren’t actually performing any movement.

Our minds are powerful and this research shows how we can perform seemingly miraculous feats just by thinking. Today, my goal is to encourage you to use this power to your benefit.
