Mind Over Matter

  1. Sit back in your easy chair recliner with your legs on the foot rest and then do one arm push ups with a 20 pound dumb bell till you are too tired to continue.

    Then lift one of your legs off of the footrest. To me it feels as if it only weighs about a pound.

    Isn't that sort of mind over matter, considering the fact that your leg is much heavier than a pound.

  2. Leverage because you use other muscle like stomach, butt, back to lift your leg?
  3. The foot feels so light that its hard to tell which muscles I'm using.
