RE: Bad thoughts during heavy squats
MUSIC - music will clear your mind and get you hyped.

10x10 german volume squats help build confidence and strength (you don't even have to go anywhere near your max)

I have a ritual before walking up to the rack, shake my legs and arms, breath a few times, then immediately swing my shoulders underneath the rack and lift off.

MIRRORS are a huge help because they help you focus, and you focus on forum.

As far as ass to grass, you don't have to go that low if you don't want to - or just use lighter weight for deeper squats.

Squats used to be a mind fuck for me also - I was afraid of squatting 2 plates (225) for a long time. I past that benchmark and hit 265, plan on PR'ing on 285 or possibly 305 this week.

The sky is the limit, get the fears out of your head and enjoy your workouts.
