My current strength training program has me working in cycles where each cycle is one month. I only do the same rep scheme for the same exercise once per month. Since I'm currently on my second cycle, I have something to compare against. I have a terrible memory, so I don't remember how many reps I did or even the weight from last month. I've discovered that I don't care to look either. I get the impression that if I know how much weight was on the bar last time, I'll either slack once I surpass the reps from last time or I'll psych myself out so I don't hit more reps this month and get all butt hurt.
So there, men do get emotional about their weight.
