I knew the principles of focus and muscle concentration and how they function in creating a brain to muscle connection. But with the MS limitations I had, it was an experiment on how to get these principles to apply PROPERLY with MS. The question that needed to be answered was what training methods will work the best with MS and how do I implement them for success.

I went from being lifted in and out of exercise machines at the gym to squatting 500 lbs. again just like I did in my 20’s and 30’s. My legs were now able to do what I wanted them to do and my left side, numb from MS, was now cooperating with me in my workouts and in day to day activities despite the numbness. The MS symptoms were no longer controlling my life. I was controlling MS. I was ahead of this disease.
