i like that motivation stuff. a guy i used to train with always shouted "pull! pull!" when we were bench pressing and from one second to the other all concentration was gone cause i was always thinking "no i won't you freaking idiot!!".
A good spotter will motivate, a bad one just stands around stating the obvious while you're clearly lifting with all you have.
My ex (training buddy) and I used to yell Coleman stuff like "ain't nuttin but a peanut", after a while we just yelled PEANUTS but in Swedish (Jordnötter), it kept me going for a few reps
BTW, yesterday I drank coffe and took BCAA at the same time, Joel-style
I like that sort of supportive commentary, at least they know you're trying and are being supportive!
Ha ha, espresso's and BCAA's, best pre workout supplements ever!!
I usually start "commenting" back to my spotter although sometimes words don't actually come out it is just sounds.
Just Branch Warren style grunting ha!? lol
Had a busy weekend so haven't updated my journal for a couple of days.
Friday was a short workout as I had to finish up at the shop and fit in a workout before I started my shift at the gym.
Just did some squats and a little bit for shoulders and abs.
Seated dumbell press (no back support) - 15kg x 12
25kg x 6
33kg x 5 x 3 sets
Squats - bar x 15
60kg x 10
100kg x 6
140kg x 4
165kg x 2 x 3 sets
Standing calf raise - 160kg x 10 x 3 sets
Rollouts - 6 x 3 sets
Didn't keep track of exactly what I ate on the weekend but Friday night was a refeed meal, had a vegan pizza from a vegetarian pizza place not far from where I live.
Wasn't able to really train over the weekend, had a migraine Saturday afternoon and into yesterday so I spent most of my time resting.
Managed to eat a couple of meals of tempeh, black quinoa, spinach, cherry tomatoes and avocado and a couple of Nitrofusion shakes, didn't feel all that hungry though. I seem to get these headaches more than I would like, could be hereditary as they run in my family but I'll make sure I keep getting enough minerals and stuff in my diet.
