Gripping and letting go on the bar way too many times before I lift, kinda ocd-ish.[/quote]
This. I keep going to start, and then stand off. Back again, stand off. You just have to find that little moment in time when your mind forgets to scream “don’t do it son! it’ll only hurt” - when that vacancy arrives I grip and let loose.
Other than that, I just create a hypothetical situation i.e. imagine someone’s got your girl hostage - if you complete the full set she’ll live, if you don’t do it, she gets shot.[/quote]
exactly, it’s especially bad if someones spotting you and I keep getting close to start but then stop, they don’t know what’s going on but I can’t stop myself, but like you said there’s always that window of opportunity to lift, but don’t let it slip otherwise it takes like a minute to come back lol
