RE: Bad thoughts during heavy squats
Part of the mind does not like hardwork and pain. It will try and trick you and make you not attempt the lift. That part of the brain wants you to remain comfortable as it's the easy path. I get similar thoughts before a really taxing lift, especially squats. I'm going to guess you don't have the thoughts before an easier lift such as bench.

Don't worry, acknowledge the thoughts and try rationalise why you can lift the weight. If you try and stop the thoughts in my experience it has the opposite effect and magnifies them.
