00:00 Intro
00:31 There are two main ways to strength train. The first one is to make heavy weights feel light. The second is to make light weights feel heavy.
03:00 Which avatar benefits more from switching lifting methods, the bodybuilder or the powerlifter?
08:54 The mentality MATTERS most!
The Focus, Pros, and Cons of Lifting Heavy Vs. Lifting Light.
13:16 Lifting Heavy: Maximizes efficiency, focuses on movement, and doesn’t focus on “feeling” the muscle.
16:30 Focus: Psyching up, and perfecting the smooth movement.
18:47 Pros: Great for overall muscle, real-world applicable strength, and builds a solid body.
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.
44:27 Cons: Doesn’t build as much total muscle, and strength is less applicable to the real-world.
