A short tip to improving form instantly.
I can’t take credit for this little gem, it is something in the lifting world the Russian athletes of the world have done for a while.
You will also find it common in various other sports as well.
That is simple, it is because of the exceptional amount of feel it provides you.
Close your eyes and lift.
Yep, lifting with your eyes closed if one of the best ways to sharpen up your form instantly.
Is it dangerous?
Meh, potentially, then again, you wouldn’t want to try it with your 1RM, perhaps starting off with bodyweight and then moving on to lighter loads is more sensible.
What pulling down the lids on your peepers will do is nothing short of amazing.
You will start to feel your bodies movements.
The balance biases, the instability, the movement patterns and so much more.
If something is off you will wobble, feel unstable and probably bail on the attempt, and that’s okay because you can try again.
Being the complex creatures that we are,w e rely heavily on our sight.
Maybe we shouldn’t, not all the time.
Give this little tip a try with smaller movements first the are lower overall risk.
Over time build up to doing it with larger compound movements.
With enough practice you’ll be Daredevil in no time.
