Grinding out a heavy Deadlift is much more mental than it is physical. Infact, I think that principle could apply to grinding out any lift - not JUST the Deadlift. If your mind slows down a normal rep imagine how slow a grinder seems. You're holding a really heavy weight, your body is physically struggling under the weight, you feel exhausted and the mental fatigue of feeling the rep in slow motion is daunting, every part of your physical being wants to just stop, your lungs are burning and you're struggling to keep your core tight and your face is flushed! But, as those thoughts go through your mind in that very repetition: you just have to let all of that GO…you don't sit and examine these thoughts like an archaeologist dwells on a rock. You keep struggling and you keep making tiny "adjustments" (as Eric calls them) for the maximum weight. Keep Lifting!
