Step Two: Set a goal weight.

You must develop an obsession with your workout. A goal weight gives you an ending point for the workout and something to strive for daily. The goal weight should be high enough to work hard to get there but not so high that you lose the confidence or patience to reach it. Setting a goal weight surpasses the workout and gives you a focal point.

For example, when you set a goal weight of 400 lbs on the bench press, you will not be focused on how long or how many reps you have to get there; instead, you will be focused on getting to that weight.

Now you may be thinking that this is common knowledge when working out. Set a goal. Meet the goal. Yay, everyone celebrates. No. This method digs a little deeper.
