Quit thinking about it.
Yes it’s heavier than you’ve ever lifted before. And yes, you are still making some refinements to your technique.
Maybe you should have better shoes. Or no shoes. Or some chalk to help your grip . . .
Forget the minor details. Discard the excuses of imperfection. Just pick up the damned barbell.
Don’t over-analyze your reps or your sets or your rests. The barbell will still be there unaffected by your mental masturbation. The barbell pines for only one thing – your action.
It doesn’t care if you hit a PR today. It doesn’t care if you lift more weight than the guy next to you. It only cares that you’ve come with your best. Right here. Right now.
Cell phone is off.
iPod is cranked.
Grip is tight.
How you pick up the barbell is how you pick up your fork is how market your business is how you walk your dog is how you kiss your wife. How you do anything is how you do everything. But you must DO.
Just pick up the damned barbell.
