    This post is nothing but a collection of various ideas rolling around in my head. Blurbs of training advice. I am taking into account that many of the boards members are what I would consider novice lifters, if you

    Good stuff dude.

    I do best in my lifts when I'm pressed for time and pace myself alittle more.

    Just found out today.

    See, I'm the exact opposite. My 15 rep squat workouts take 2-2.5 hours.

    Neither is better, we just have different rest periods.

    As for the psyching up part, you forgot to mention listening to Rock Lobster by the B-52's.
    Everyone should listen to Rock Lobster at least 3-4 times before lifting. If you have never listened to Rock Lobster, I suggest you download the song... NOW! Rock Lobster is possibly the greatest song ever. Rock Lobster.

    We were at a party
    His ear lobe fell in the deep
    Someone reached in and grabbed it
    It was a rock lobster

    We were at the beach
    Everybody had matching towels
    Somebody went under a dock
    And there they saw a rock
    It wasn't a rock
    It was a rock lobster

    Motion in the ocean
    His air hose broke
    Lots of trouble
    Lots of bubble
    He was in a jam
    S'in a giant clam

    Down, down

    Underneath the waves
    Mermaids wavin'
    Wavin' to mermen
    Wavin' sea fans
    Sea horses sailin'
    Dolphins wailin'

    Red snappers snappin'
    Clam shells clappin'
    Muscles flexin'
    Flippers flippin'

    Down, down

    Let rock!

    Boy's in bikinis
    Girls in surfboards
    Everybody's rockin'
    Everybody's fruggin'
    Twistin' 'round the fire
    Havin' fun
    Bakin' potatoes
    Bakin' in the sun

    Put on your noseguard
    Put on the Lifeguard
    Pass the tanning butter

    Here comes a stingray
    There goes a manta-ray
    In walked a jelly fish
    There goes a dog-fish
    Chased by a cat-fish
    In flew a sea robin
    Watch out for that piranha
    There goes a narwhale
    HERE COMES A BIKINI WHALE!


    Oh, and btw... YOU'RE WELCOME.

    I know lots of people don't lift to music. These people don't know what it is to be intense. Bring an mp3 player or discman to the gym with all the songs you know get you jacked or angry or just plain emotional. If you get into the music and forget about the shit going on around you, it helps a hell of a lot.

    Interesting. Shows that training is so much more than just training. The mental/emotional aspects are just sooo important.
    Too bad some fag is trying to fillibuster your thread with Rock Lobster lyrics. When i'm at the gym and i hear song i don't like it makes me angry and i try and channel that into my lift.

    Ok. I apologize. The B-52's still suck however.

    Oh and just a note, I'd ague the opposite Plum. People who are dependant on music for a psych lack mental fortitude. I can get more psyched amped on ephy and jamming to some metal than I can ragged ass tired and watching Lifetime, but ideally external factors like those matter less and less. It used to be I'd want a particular song to max out too, now I don't even care if there is music at all.

    Tom Skiver said he spent a few months lifting to Journey, so that when he went to nationals he knew they wouldn't possible play anything he disliked more.

    I consider music as a tool to get me pumped before the workout, but I could careless while I'm lifting cause all I'm doing is concentrating on the lift. The music doesn't affect me much during the workout.

    Carnal, look, don't say you want me. Don't say you need me. Don't say you love me. It's understood... don't say you're happy, out there without me, I know you can't be, 'cos it's no goo-ooood... :D

    This is true. But everytime they play Rock Lobster on 100.3 JackFM, I just can't help it... I just have to wiggle my head around and tap my foot :redface: .
