Out of curiosity, how do you guys go about getting completely focused and wanting to slay the bar when you lift? It seems that they way you approach lifts mentally has a pretty big effect (well significant enough for me) on how hard you push yourself and what you can actually do. So how do you get fucking furious at the bar and rape it and any kind of future bars it may or may not give birth to in the future? Watching guys like Kaz, Benni, Tate go nuts before theif big lifts in videos is pretty awesome, because as much of a spectacle as it seems to most people, that's 150% focus that most of us don't ever come close to. On the days that I can switch it on I stare at the floor usually, out of focus, and grind my palms back and forth against the bar, until it almost starts to hurt, then I focus the breathing, then try to shut everything else out, then go for it. But everyone's got their own methods. A pretty serious guy in my gym puts a towel over his head and stares down the entire time between sets so that he sees just a tunnel to the floor, then right before his lift he rips it off, his eyes go wide, takes a deep breath and he goes for the lift. And I'm a fucking pussy with a big 3 of 830ish @168lbs or whatever, who gives a fuck about my numbers - but guys that are up in the really heavy 3 with suits, I can't even begin to fucking imagine how focused they need to be with 800lbs on your back or 500lbs above your face. So what do you guys do? Kick people off the bikes mid-spinning class? A certain band/song in your headphones? A phrase you say to yourself? Enya?
