The single most effective strategy for dealing with a physical and mental challenge is preparation. Not only will preparation ensure that are ready for the physical demands, but just as importantly it will help you with motivation, confidence and focus to achieve your goals at hand. If you can not picture yourself lifting it, you already failed an attempt at the lift. My main concern when in the weight room is to focus on each set as it is the only one being preformed that day. Mentally preform the lift then physically. This behavior coupled with a structured program and an intense training philosophy will help you strive for improvement each and every day.
Today Tara and I hit up Golds Gym and a crowded one it was! Really kept shorter rest periods and a slower rep speed on all sets. Here's how it went.....
DB Press- 1x12@120's / 1x10@140's / 1x8@140's / 1x6@140's*1x10@105's
Neutral Grip Incline Press- 4x8 (3-1-3-1 Tempo)
Low Pulley Flyes- 4x10
Hanging leg raise- 4x10
Machine crunch- 3x12
Ball crunch- 3x15
