i'm finding yelling is important. at heavier weights anyway, but it is also seeming to be important at lighter weights. feels like if i'm not yelling once it is at my knees then that is because i didn't keep my hips down properly. and if i don't give a good yell in the second position then i didn't finish the pull. so, miss forwards, basically. my yelling freaks me out (I get a bit self conscious especially when other people are in the gym) so i turn up my i-pod. but finding it hard to lift because i worry my yelling is obnoxious, i guess.
(we have one platform but mostly people are using cable machines, squatting, benching and stuff).
oh well. just try and go when other people aren't around. or sometimes when other people are who i know don't mind my yelling.
guess it isn't about psyching up for the lift... except i guess it is because it is about whether i'm focused properly on the lift (hence will yell) or not. sigh. why did i have to be a yeller???
