I've tried reaching out before through forums but you usually get people marginally attached to the sport which is never good for consistency or attitude. The two guys I have now are both from a gym I used to train at. So PL gyms and meets are probably your best bet.

I bought some briefs but have yet to wear them. I can now see how they can be beneficial, especially with eccentrics. Perhaps time to get my head out of my ass and use reverse bands too.

I imagine it is time to get more proactive and find some local guys.

The past 2 years have been an interesting journey. I was able to hammer out a lot of progress using frequent 85-90%+ work, but now I am sensing that this alone isn't going to be as magical as before.
Don's POWER LIFTING definition (): The joint connection between head and heart puts a power pack behind your goals. Getting your head in sync with your heart and grasping the power of coherence gives you the energy efficiency you need to achieve changes that haven't been possible before.

The head can notice what things need to change, but the heart provides the power and direction to actually bring about the changes.

Power Lift them balls, boy!

Get it......

Now.......

EHubbs has dropped a lot of knowledge here and for the most part I agree with what's in here:

- You weren't ready for the weight on that day which led you to lose confidence and cut it high.
- You train alone and always push yourself. That is mentally draining.
- You also went into the session with the preconceived notion that you had that squat in the bag. Every time I have done this, it has ended badly.

You know what you need to do. You have the strength for that weight and in a meet you will have redemption.
