You incorporate the mind-muscle link when tuning into the particular muscle involved in an exercise and being aware of how the muscle feels. The key is learning how the muscles within your body are activated when moving. For example, your pectoralis muscle (chest) stretches and contracts when performing the flye movement. In order to become more aware of how your pecs are activated, try stepping just past an open doorway with arms outstretched. Now press your hands against the open door frame. You should feel a tensing of your chest muscles. Utilize this awareness of how your chest feels when performing the flye movement. The feeling experienced when pressing in an open doorway compared to executing the flye exercise is coalesced by your mind. Congratulations, you've just made a mind-muscle link with regard to activating your chest muscle during a flye movement.
