Cheers mate! I'm hoping to compete next year too so I'll see you there!
I was listening to Psychosocial by Slipknot really, really loudly. When I unracked the bar, it hit something and almost fell off my back. If you look closely you can see the bar wobble all over the place. It really messed me up mentally. That's esentially as hyped as I get lol, if I go too crazy I make even bigger mistakes than just having the barbell flail everywhere.
I like to descend quite quickly because I get a nice 'pop' out the hole using my stretch reflex.
