How to get stronger without moving a muscle – 'It really is incredible' says Dr Mosley


    After using motor imagery, the volunteers used “an impressive” 20 percent more of their muscles.

    This episode’s guest, Dr Helen O’Shea, who is a Cognitive Psychologist at the University of Dublin, explains that even though motor imagery can help you get stronger, it won’t help with your fitness levels.

    She said: “We need physical movement to give us that sensory knowledge of the effects of our movements.

    “But once we have some experience physically, we can use motor imagery to really prime our motor systems.”
