Since I dread tomorrow's workout (with the 165 squat for 50 in as few sets a possible), I thought we could discuss this:
How do you feel about getting amped up about a workout? Does it help you or is it counterproductive?
The longer I train, the more I understand that for me, getting the adrenaline flowing is a stupid move. It doesn't make me work harder than saying 'do work son' before going in, and on the contrary, if I start anticipating a workout or anything really too early, by the time I get to it the excitement has been replaced by anxiousness and fear (I'm mainly talking about leg work, conditioning and scheduled fights).
Jim Wendler called it 'not being a cheerleader'. So what about you?
