So any of you who have done these towards the end of a leg workout know it takes quite a bit of mental fortitude to get yourself under the bar and start your set. I’m just curious what mental approaches different T brothers take out there.
I’ve heard of guys who think of it as 4 sets of 5. While other people go all out continuously to 10-13 reps or so, then take their first big breather, after which each single rep is a fight. Tonight I tried a different approach going continuously only to 5 or so, thinking more about pacing myself and keeping my breathing as relaxed as possible between every rep. Seemed to work much better for me personally…the “fighting” didn’t really kick in until about rep 16 even though this was +5lbs on the weight I used 4 days ago when shit got ridiculous around rep 12 or so.
