25:25 Cons: Higher injury risk, feeds the ego, and it’s hard to bring up lagging body parts.
29:43 Lifting Light: Maximizes inefficiency, focuses on the target muscle, and it’s all about the “feel.”
34:43 Focus: Calm collected, and visualizes the target muscle.
41:00 Pros: Brings up target body parts, and lowers injury risk.
