I have heard that instead of focusing on lifting the weight, it’s better to try not focusing on anything?Thomas Stinson
Does this work? This only works when in a sitting meditation, not training. Its very important to execute movement with intent, not just go through a range of motion, this accomplishes nothing, often leading to injury.
What’s best is to focus on the the muscles that are being worked.
For beginners, focus on proper breath and postural techniques and then, after those have been automatized, bring the attention back to the targeted muscles.
