The Mind in Bodybuilding
The Mind in Body Building is about how to use your mind to improve
your body and your life. It contains many personal growth techniques:
how to meditate, different ways to evoke the Relaxation Response,
selecting and using positive affirmations, dream work, visualization
to enhance body image and behavioral change, high tech mind building
entrainment methods such as light sound machines, dichotic audio
recordings, acoustic vibration, pulsed magnetic field therapy, brain
hemisphere balancing, developing peripheral vision, motivation, peak
performance and stress management techniques and much more. Metaphors
for growth instill the desire and motivation for self improvement at
a subconscious level. The drawings of Christine Zane accompanying the
text should be contemplated, for they convey a special meaning and
bring home the self improvement message. The Mind in Body Building
could be the missing ingredient in your training.
In his two prior publications, the Zane Body Training Manual
and High Def Handbook, Frank spells out the details of exercise
programs and nutrition. But body building is about more than
lifting weights and eating right. It all starts with the mind.
This fascinating work completes the ultimate body building trilogy.
