i always refill my gallon jug and add more BCAA's. i usually find a couple of songs on my iPod and blare them in my truck. summer time is better with the windows down and all that kinda stuff. i get my notebook out and start my journal for the day.
unless its leg day i wrap my wrists then go to the first exercise. sometimes i kinda let my eyes blur some and try to visualize my lift befor ei do it. sort of get a feel for it, especially on heavy weights. i take my time getting mentally set.
