mental sticking points
today was chest and I went with my wife so I had a spotter so yea I can go heavy.
so i do my warm up flat bench barbell and start increasing my weights. After 4 sets I push up 175 4 times on my own. So im like what the hell I got a spotter I know 195 is too much for me but let me try it for 1. So I put another 20 on the bar laydown unrack it bring it down slow to my chest and try to explode off the bottom it moves a bit and starts slowing down. My wife puts her hands on the bar and it comes up nice and even and slow. I rack it and ask how much you do?? She says nothing. Im like wtf, she promises she didnt do anything.
So i drop back down to 175 and pump out 4 more and I cant stop thinking about it. I make her promise me again she didnt do anything on the 195 rep. It gets me thinking everytime I start working out I get stuck on flat barbel bench at around 185-205 lbs for 4 reps.
Im thinking its in my head. I was sure i couldnt do 195 so i couldnt until i thought somene was helping. Then I thought about other exercises and I do the same thing many times. I think the weight is ALOT b4 I even start. Besides just going in and saying f' you im stronger then that. How do I mentally work past these sticking points.
