I agree.

But in saying that, all I am agreeing with is that it's a state of mind kinda thing. IF you believe that to be so, it is so. If you don't, it isn't.

I happen to concur, but a lot of guys on here (some of them powerlifters, even!) will tell you that it doesn't matter at all - just do it. And IF someone is inclined to agree with that, it becomes true - it doesn't matter at all.

hth.


(edit: If I ever compete, I won't bother until I'm confident of totalling at least 1200+. That's just me though.)
