    I want to mention that from your first set with a
    measly 45 lb bar to the last rep left in your body
    approach, everything, every set, every rep, as if you
    were on the platform. PRACTICE PRACTICE
    PRACTICE. Too many lifters blow it in meets because
    they screw up their technique and technicalities of the
    lifting under judging scrutiny. GET MENTAL! Ok, some

    of you might be, but seriously use these sessions not only to work on your strength but
    conditioning your mind. Leave no detail out.

    I particularly like this excerpt. Practice does not make perfect; perfect practice makes perfect. Use warm up sets to practice correct technique and focus. Well said.

    100% agreed. Most people don't take the time to development technique and only care about their 1RM. I can't remember where I read this (I'm pretty sure it was an article on EFS), but there was an excerpt about focus on being a technician. That means to focus on perfect form on every rep and not just the ME. Most injuries come from sub-ME when the lifter is not 100% focused and doesn't respect the weight.
