FTP Ramp Test Mental Prep and Execution Strategies

FTP ramp test today. This is my mental preparation:

In all seriousness though, what are your strategies to best mentally prepare and execute on ramp test days?

I’ve found aggressive music during the test and some above rule #5 related self talk to help (as long as it doesn’t turn self destructive). Particularly for the last 5 minutes consistently having a mantra of “just 10 seconds more” helps squeezing the last bit out, but would love to hear your individual strategies on the mental side before and during.

Thank you for any input!
