Mind-Muscle Connection, Lighter Weights

Nice talk. NICE back!
How come he’s actually only using bodyweight pushups? Does the so called “mind-muscle connection” really has that much of an impact so he can work with his own bodyweight and have great results? I kinda got the feeling this is more for show. He obviously didn’t build this kind of body with bodyweight pushups :stuck_out_tongue:

Actually he talking about the pushups as helping to develop his back. Go back and watch again. At about 3:20, listen closely. He talks about focusing on his back during the pushups.

this is after a show…so i assume he is going lighter than usual

i don’t think he is lying when he said he built his physique doing pull ups, lat pulldowns, bent row to the chest, db rows, and cable rows…seems pretty standard…
