strength of mind

does anybody else use their mind to lift more weight than they would (normaly) lift.i find i have good lifting days and bad lifting days,but there is a method i use to enhance my lifting and works for me.for example i think about someone hurting the ones i love this in turn makes me mad then i can lift more.i know people use different methods to train a big one is music,for some reason we train harder when listening to music.i was wondering if there is a chemical change as we wind ourselves up in order to complete a task?we have all heard of the car crash when people can rip off doors that are impossible in (normal) state.but somehow can do this under extreme pressure,if anyone can shine a light on this i wud be grateful

    I think the state of mind your in affects your lifting.. some people have more control over there emotions etc than others..

    Ive always told myself that "The Mind Gives Up First" , its my little quote that i use to keep pushing myself to my peak. Just how every MT member here gets up in the morning and does his/her routine week in week out... that is strength of the mind in my eyes.

    yes i agree the mind is the most powerfull thing on earth.dont realy think we have pushed anywhere near our limits,i do find it facinating that people can generate enough strength to do amzing feats that are not possible under normal conditions and without any previous lifting practise.if only we could find whatever this is we tap into in times of stress we would be able to lift fantastic weights

    Sorry i didnt really hit on the main topic on my first reply. Ive heard of those sorts of things; usually in the case of a mom being in a harsh situation with her children. Its pretty fascinating to think that things like that are possibly, it really makes me wonder what us humans are really capable of and how much untapped potential we might have within ourselves.

    Probly something to do with pain threshold.

    Normally this will stop you doing something as a failsafe to stop you maybe injurying yourself.

    Under emergency and life threatening situations the mind may switch off this pain barrier, combined with adrenaline and other changes in the body would probly result in some1 being able to lift/do something that they normally could not.

    i have been reading some articles on this and i think you may be right,i would say it is something to do with a chemical message being sent to your muscles or something like that.it is very interesting as some of the feats of strength are unbelievable,would love to know more.and be able to put it in a bottle and sell it

    Big Ron is skinny and squatting over 700lbs. It really is mind over matter. Next week, I'm gonna bench press 300kilo using the belief in my mind that I can and will do it.

    Yeah, a weight he can do easily.

    Hypnotise a 120lb guy to deadlift 600lbs and see what happens.

    dont think the hypnotist would risk being sued for a back injury.but it would be interesting to se.maybe your mind can tell you even under hypnosis that all is not well i dont know

    If his mind didnt wanna do bodybuilding in the first place he wouldn't be winning no Mr O.

    You think some1 who isnt mentally willing and tough enough can win Mr O.


    The mind is wot controls the body, without it then you're fuked bascially

    Obviously your body has limits "I'm going to hang a 2 tonne truck off my left nut by MIND POWER" isn't goign to happen.

    However yeh i get into that mentle state & i think the longer you train the easier it is to get into that focused state(therefore meaning your body & mind progress so your lifts do!).

    However right now i find its so easy to snap back into 'reality'.

    last week for example i couldnt budge the weight, but then i focused and the 5 reps were piss easy. No idea why, third set was tough but it was surreal to be able to lift it with little hassle.

    I believe the mind is very powerfull and we could all increase our lifts by large ammounts if everyone could get into that 'ZONE'.

    A lot to do with adrenaline and motivation. And also fear of dropping the weight on yourself
