And Pantera
Lo, there do I see my father
Lo, there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers
Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning
Lo, they do call to me
They bid me take my place among them in the Halls of Valhalla
Where the brave may live

I try not to psyche up before entering the gym. I just tell myself that this is the schedule for tonight and no matter what I am not leaving without completing every set and rep with full intensity.

I personally thrive on accomplishment during my workout. Typical example would be that after my first couple warm-up sets I aim straight for my max because I am still "fresh," this is when I push myself to muscle failure. Once I am done I know that nothing can stop me from having a hardcore workout and every other set just falls into place.

However, if I do not accomplish that utopia effect during my first exercise, I put the weight back on the rack, head of to the treadmill for 2mins and start over again at the weight room.

Sounds abit crazy but due this thinking frame of mind I have broken alot of my personal records.
Courage is not the absence of Fear.
Its the presence of fear with the ability to move ahead.

If you are truly focused it does not matter what is goin on arond you, what ever usic is playin.

But if your not that focused definatley metal.

Nothing is better than someone spotting for you though, shouting at you and helping you squeeze out that last rep.

I need to be listening to hardcore rock music to get pumped up. It clears my mind of all distraction and allows me to just pump. I also implement imagery into my pre-set preparation. I imagine what a flawless form should be, and see myself lifting in that manner, achieving my repetition goals. Music is definitely key for me.

****, you guys imagine a lot. LOL, I just take as many deep breaths as I can and get under that "heaby a$s weight" and what ever the outcome is I'll be happy (sort of, if I beat the book, I'll be happy).

Yelling/grunting works wonders!!!!!!
Stick to the basics.
