Alright, we all have our ways of activating God Mode when we're pumping iron. Most of us use music or something of the sort, but my brother taught me a bit differently, but isn't around to help anymore, and I'm looking for an alternative, and opinions on his technique.
Basically, he liked to get really up-close and personal- directly in my face and try his hardest to piss me off. We've fought before, and I know I'm no match for him, so we both know that I wouldn't let my temper make me do something stupid, but it was perfect for turning me into that monster I needed to be in the gym.
There would actually be times that he would push me, poke me, or slap my head. I've never had a better workout than one where he did this to me. It seemed that anger was my absolute best performance enhancer. So, here's the question.
Is this healthy? Are there risks that come with this/what are they?
Have you done this, and how well did it work for you?
What are your general thoughts? All opinions/comments/questions are welcome!
