Once you teach your mind and your body to fully engage in your lifts, then you will be in the money. I just really started to get this about a month ago, and I've been lifting for the better part of 10 years.

dont be like this guy

Yes I agree many people don't know how to engage their abdominals when lifting. People tend to love to engage their back muscles though when lifting by swinging or bridging up their back when benching or chest pressing.
