Default Lack of motivation for upcoming meet

Was doing great this offseason, on all but my bench. Changed from High Bar to low bar Squat and have surpassed my previous best. Deadlift is feeling good, even with a stiff bar. Bench is my only stagnation. Was feeling great, the last few weeks, about the 100% RAW American Challenge this coming weekend and then I hit a wall. I feel so unmotivated right now. Not sure whether it is frustration, fear or what. I have three days to get the MOJO back. Any other powerlifters ever had a similar thing happen? How did you get past it? May have to do a "Rocky" marathon on Friday.

Always at the end of a training cycle. I get worn down and ready to just get to the meet. It will hit you like a ton of bricks on meet day, dont worry!

Now that made me laugh. Not sure if I should be scared or look forward to the smack down.

Listen to some motivational speeches they help quite a lot and listen to some badass music during your workouts.
