Most people might take for granted how they approach a heavy barbell for a lift and the set up. It’s all about consistency. Something to get you feeling ready to lift that heavy barbell. It’s different for everyone, and no one way is the right way. But hopefully you start to have an approach.
Why you ask? Simple, consistency. If you set up different every single time, or worse, you don’t even know how you’re setting up, then chances are the lifts will not be consistent. Think of it like a basketball player shooting free throws. It’s something that they are comfortable with, relaxes them and gets them in the zone for the free throw. Same thing applies when it comes to lifting. The set up is the starting point of the lift. If that chances then it screws everything else up.
Keep in mind you don’t need the perfect set up for every time you touch a barbell. But when it comes to lifting heavy percentages or going for a 1 rep max then yes it does matter!
