Does anyone have any mental techniques for achieving
focus and productivity in their lifting.
Counting backwards, like a countdown works well for me.
You know like a rocket countdown.
I don't know why but a set seems to go quicker that way.
I also use a focus point on a wall. For doing squats for example,
I pick a spot or an object on the wall ahead and above me.
I focus on it completely, keeping my mind off the weight I'm
lifting. It works well for me.
Some people are the opposite. They like to look at and focus on the weight
they are lifting to psyche themselves up.
Any mental techniques out there?
Thank you, Mindset26. I think both are worth trying,
Counting backwards!! That's an interesting idea why have I never come up with that idea ?
I'm gonna try it at my next training session.
Usually I am easily intimidated by the weight heavier than my wife !! Don't tell her I said that.
So once I lie down on the bench I usually put some efforts to forget about actual weight I'm gonna lift, instead I try to concentrate on reps so I chant like, "( Today I will lift this ) six times, six times, SIX!!"
I know it's kinda lame. but I can't help.
