    Lightbulb The zone

    G'day from brisvegas.
    Age 27
    H 186cm
    W 95kg
    Body type: Meso with abit of endo.

    I have a good deep passion for training, I suffer from depression and anxiety on a daily basis also.

    I guess I'm not really sure what I'm looking for here but I'm hoping for abit of honest insight on mental health when it comes to motivation for training/dieting daily, mentality going into workouts? Self doubt ? Low self esteem and lacking confidence? I train to break mental barriers, the body can take a fucken trashing if your mind allows you too.. How do you guys get into the "zone"

    Evil.
    Pure evil, bad memories, self disdain, loathing the future,
    and cursing the past.

    I like to take all that hatred and load it into a metaphorical
    Revolver pointed at my Medulla Oblongata.

    I take the trigger of that revolver and squeeze it upon every failing rep.

    Music and ephedrine helps.

    Convert emotion to willpower.
    Fear, sadness, anger, depression especially can be turned into a valuable tool for self destructive workouts.

    Some people cut themselves or become serial killers because the couldn't channel shit right...

    Not I, I can use that to gain a rep when most would have called it a fail rep.

    Many out there know exactly what I mean.

    The above mentioned can be a valuable way to defeat depression. Find Musclescience and click on the depression thread linkin his signature.

    You have a whole lot of demons and gremlins and critters in you. Let them out at the right time and it is very beneficial.

    Boom. Yeah good. I can relate to a lot of that, I try different things, music, I have a Vicks inhaler I might use in between set and you can even bite down on it during heavy sessions it allows me better neck/jaw position or hold water on my mouth. Correct stretching especially lats and biceps/chest. However my most failed attribute would have to be my breathing technique, deeper inhale longer exhale is my focus. I also enjoy using a small amount of weed before some sessions I can get into deeper meditation, and work upto absolute failure but I love a good super set !

    There's certainly a demon, I like to think no regrets.

    It's early days tho. The future is looking bright....

    Awesome man! If you have anything to share that could help either someone else or yourself, don’t hold back. It’s a judgement free zone, and i have took a lot of great advice that has helped me by some of those post.
