Think and Grow Buff?
From Jonathan Fields:
Can your brain make you buff? Imaginary workouts can build strength and fuel weight lossGO READ THE WHOLE THING!
"Building muscle, it turns out, is not nearly as mechanical as we thought. And, in fact, a recent study by Erin M. Shackell and Lionel G. Standing at Bishop’s University reveals you may be able to make nearly identical gains in strength and fitness without lifting a finger!"
At the end of the article, Jonathan asks:
"If I created an mp3 with a 30-minute, full-body visualized workout to test this research, would you be willing to commit to listening to it 3 times a week for a month and then reporting back your results? If so, let me know in the comments below and if there is enough interest, we’ll run our own study."This is the kind of experiment that I will gladly be a lab rat in! You can, too. Go leave a comment at Jonathan's post. He needs another couple dozen people to get a quorum. How about you? C'mon, it'll be fun! And when it works, you'll have plenty of conversation fodder for those holiday parties coming up. In fact, by being on this program, you'll be able to keep yourself in better shape during party season...
