RE: Bad thoughts during heavy squats
Squats are more of a mindfuck than other lifts, because of the nature of putting that weight on your back that feels like it will crush you.

It's why I both love and hate them at the same time.

I think learning to ignore your thoughts is an important skill.

I try to clear my head of all thoughts before a set, and it takes some training to ignore those voices telling me to quit the set early.

I think it's the same for runners and endurance athletes. Their body will tell them to stop but they have trained themselves to ignore it.

This mental aspect of weightlifting is one of the best things about it, in my opinion.
