    OFFICIAL MOTIVATION/INSPIRATION THREAD...what gets you fired up?

    I was wondering what gets everyone fired up/motivated/inspired (specifically for the gym, but could be for anything)? About a half hour or so before i go to the gym, i blast Pantera/Metallica, maybe through some Pumping Iron on the TV, drink a protien shake/caffiene pill. By the time i leave, i am so fired up i almost can't control myself...

    What gets you guys going? This could be anything...famous quotes, Bible scriptures, music, movie lines/scenes ANYTHING!

    Some of you have some pretty impressionable and inspirational quotes as your signatures, i want everyone to be able to look at this thread and FIRED UP!!!!!!!!!!

    Ex.

    Rocky running through the streets of Philly.....

    Arnold blowing shit up in Terminator.....

    "Pain is temporary"

    ANYTHING!!!
    You're a funny guy, Sully, I like you. Dat's why I'm going to kill you lahst.

    Here's some examples.....

    *How about when "Big Louie" is screaming "Arnold Arnold Arnold Arnold" as he struggles with his last few reps military pressing about 275lbs in "Pumping Iron".

    *Any Pantera song in existence

    *The scene in "Predator" when they absolutely mow down the forest trying to get the predator after he kills one of Arnold's boys.

    ***Possibly my fav scene of all time in any movie....

    End of Braveheart when the Brits and Scots are lined up on opposite ends of the field for what the Brits think is a full out surrender. William Wallace's boy (redhead big Mfer) starts the chant
    "WALLACE. WALLACE. WALLACE. WALLACE."

    The whole Scot army starts chanting, he throws Wallace's old sword and they charge towards the shocked and scared shitless Brits....

    That scene is F*****n crazy, i want to kill someone!!

    i have two different kinds of inspiration...

    #1 - the one that keeps me going when i am tired, or when i want to cheat and eat something fattening...i have a picture of myself up on my office wall, a big 11x17 of when i was huge. I weighed about 285 and i look like an apple with tooth picks for legs and arms. I hate that picture with a passion!

    #2 - i love megadeath, diecast and hatebread. i listen to one or the other on the way to the gym!

    When I was 16 I weighed 225 was chubby, weak as a kitten, and miserable. Remembering that time always gets me going.

    Listening to heavy shit in the gym is always good, Danzig, Slayer, etc.

    And possibly one of the most inspirational videos I have ever watched is Triple H, 'The Game'
    Sounds corny, I know. But just sit through it once and you'll want to get off your ass and hit the weights.
    If god were suddenly condemned to live the life which he has inflicted on man, he would kill himself.

    Whenever I want to get fired up...and this is going to sound kind of stupid...

    I listen to Bill Goldberg's old theme music from the WCW...when he used to come out into the shower of sparks and scream his nuts off. That used to send chills down my spine and it still never fails to get me pumped up.

    Either that or for lifting, Dorian's Blood and Guts...with his training partner screaming at him while he's barbell rowing 405 for reps. Unreal.
    Today I can do what others will not so that tomorrow I will do what others cannot.

    The difference between winners and losers is that winners do things that losers don't want to do.

    Ya Pony, you know what i'm talking about.....

    Dorian's boy yelling "Let's go to war.........no mercy man, no prisoners"...that's the kinda partner i need!

    You guys ever seen "The Program"....

    The coach is flipping through possible offenses the opposing team may run on the big screen as the Defense watches. He calls to Alvin Mack (the captain)...

    Coach: "Alvin, its 3rd and 7, what's your assignment"

    Alvin:"O.K. Thunder Lion........Kill the quarterback"

    (Coach flips screen to a new play)

    Alvin:"Hit the tight end so hard his girlfriend dies"

    (Flips to new play)

    Alvin: "Kill EVERYBODY"



    That's what i'm talking about!!

    So jbo,
    youre trying to tell me you don't blast Pantera "Fukking Hostile" and watch Dorian Yates leg press over 1000lbs before you workout

    That's great you use your competititon as motivation, if they only knew...they'd be scared

    Pantera - YES (they split 5/2003), Dorians video nearly put me to sleep. His training partner is pretty motivating though, I like Ronnie's video better.
