The set up👊🏼
Arguably the most important to any particular lift in my personal opinion.
There’s certain things I look to do before lifting a particular weight⬇️
◾️ Fully focusing on the set. Not thinking about anything else apart from executing the weight. When a football player runs up to take a penalty, I’m pretty sure he/she will only be thinking about hitting the back of the net. Same applies with this.
◾️ Breathing under control. You move from one exercise to another, you’re taking weights off, putting them back on etc. Basically cardio mate. Seriously though, bring your heart rate down. Get your breathing under control so you’re ready to focus on the set.
◾️ Wrists/foot position. As soon as you’ve picked that weight up, in lots of exercises you’ll get stuck there and won’t be able to adjust. Nothing worse than pushing a weight with your wrists in a incorrect position.
◾️ Visualise. Focus on the end goal (in regards to reps). You know for a fact you got 5 reps last week, so that’s going to be the very minimum in this set. Mindset is such an important part.
