Eric Broser first coined the term G.I.T and explained its uses in an article I read in Muscle & Fitness some time ago. The acronym G.I.T stands for ‘Get In Touch’, and is a novel way of maximising the well established ‘Mind/muscle connection’.
The mind muscle connection encompasses the neurological connections between the nervous system (brain) and your muscles. Through practicing the movement you are about to perform with no weight, you acquaint the muscles with that movement which in effect prepares the muscle for the resistance it is about to receive. The theory is that more neurons fire in the muscle which in turn recruits more muscle fibres and thus improves the quality of contraction. See also ‘visualisation’ and ‘muscle tapping’ for other unique ways of enhancing the mind/muscle connection.
