My best work outs are always when I do a kind of meditation between sets. What I do is imagine the Earth below me and imagine it as a tremendous ball of energy and then I imagine a bunch of that energy going through my body from the ground up out into space in kind of a beam of light/energy through my Chakras (basically your Endocrine glands). This gets me extremely pumped up and it feels like I can lift forever because I'm not lifting with "my" strength I'm using this channeled power. I wind up completely exhausting myself though if I go too hard doing this.

This might sound weird to some but I used to be very into meditation, out of body experiences, and that sort of thing so its sort of taking from that and applying it to weightlifting.

Awesome! I thought I was alone with the meditation during a workout. I don't do any active visualizations. I like to shut out everything around me, but the weight. I do use an awareness of my body to sort of channel energy where it needs to go. I always found music, or getting "psyched up" to just distract me.
