So you really did it or just did it mentally, in your head?

Awesome man....so much of this game is mental...when you can control the mental side, you can move some serious poundage. Good for you bro.

well see heres the thing, I ALWAYS did work in sets of 305. So a few older wiser buddys cam in the gym today (they are some Viking/iceland looking guys, about 45 years old.they saw me doing 305 shrugs. Well They started doing shoulder shrugs right next to me......they warmed up with 3 plates, 4 plates, 5plates, 6plates and then 7plate work in sets. I was BLOWN AWAY. looked like a little kid. We started talking about mentally preparing yourself....... so i did, and put on a 4th plate, 8x's, then a 5th plates, 6x's, then a 6th plate, by now they are yelling and screaming at me CMON CMON CMON LETS GO! ! ! ! YOU GOT IT ! ! I planted my feet on the block of wood and succesfully shrugged 6 plates 4x's.......I rested and then went down to 4 plates, lemme tell you after 6 plates, 4 seemed like a piece of cake....
so thats the end of my story.....thanks
