Re: Always tense?
I completely agree.
I hit a wall a couple weeks back. Mentally and physically.
For me, I took some time off, and I'm getting back into a different sort of routine. It will be higher volume lifting and I'll be doing it mainly for the fat burning/metabolic boosting effects. After a month or so of this I should be back in the game.
I used to not look at a set like I do now either. Now I see my final, heavy set and get nervous and apprehensive. Then I have to work up the courage to just do the set. Sometimes that takes a little while. It's weird.
