Physical strength controlled by your mind

Why is it that we seem to perform more when you have a partner at the gym? I have some friends over for the week-end and I went to the gym with one of them yesterday. Not only did I lift more weights, when he was around, I also was able to do more sets.

Sometime we think that we can't lift certain weight and I believe that it’s because we don’t believe we can. I think I can roughly lift 10-20 pounds more than I think I can.

When I have someone with me, who’s stronger, and I see him lift more weights than me. It’s like it becomes possible and I want to do it not to look too “weak”.

What are you thoughts on this?
