I have my own set of rituals and preparations that I have to go through. I won't workout unless everything on my list is checked off.

First thing is socks. They must not be worn so they fall off my calves during lifting. I can't lift with socks around my ankles.

Second is clothing. On squat and deadlifts I must have a long sleeve shirt, hoodie or sweatshirt. On press days I must wear a t-shirt.

After this I put on my shoes and prepare my intra-workout drink which is almost always whey in 32 ounces of water. Once I have my whey and water I will grab my notebook and analyze my last workout for this lift and set goals.

Now I am ready for the dungeon. I have to prep my music before I do anything. I rarely listening to anything other than Slayer, old Metallica, Swashbuckle, Testament or Iron Witch. At times I listen to the same CD for months on end.

I always follow the same warmup protocol and weight progression, always starting with a big lift.

Keeping everything the same allows for me to comfortably focus on my workout.
