    I have to put chapstick on before I lift. No reason really. I don't even have chapped lips. I also listen to the same song while warming up on the bike before every training session; Union Underground - South Texas Deathride. When the songs over, its time to lift. Maybe I'm just weird. :dunno:

    You -are- weird. Just kidding.

    I pray to Crom before every max effort lift. ;)

    The entire time at the gym I always end up biting my nails and the skin around my fingers until they bleed. I feel weird just between sets.

    -watch the end of Chapter 8 of Pumping Iron (Ferrigno curls, Arnold rows)
    -replay Carole King in my head while walking to the gym (30-ish mins)

    At the gym, about the only ritual I have is to rub the ends of the posts with my palms before I do dips.
