I lift from a different perspective. Either I am lifting more than I did the last time I worked out or less. If I am lifting less, then why? Am I cutting or am I gaining? Am I motivated during my workout, or am I unmotivated. If I am unmotivated, then why? I don't really care about anything other than results: cause and effect. Pump and tightness are neither a cause or an effect that has any relevance on results.
