Sorry guys for making alot of threads in this section but i asked for this, and Rupert was kindly enough to create it for me, so im going to use it. some people may benefit from this section, who knows but here is a thread about visualisation…
Visualisation can be a very powerful tool in transforming yourself into the most dominating track and/or field athlete, or any athlete for that matter, heck, even person, you could be.
the key to making gains in leaps and bounds is correctly visualising yourself making them gains. by visualising the perfect start in a 100m, or the perfect jump, or throw.
however, visualising isnt as easy as just picturing the perfect sprint, no no, much more to it. in order to be a perfectionist visualiator (sp), you must become a expert at it. you need to practice, hard, you need to strengthen your mind. a few “workouts” a day, heck, even once a day would be good enough. for say 10-15mins, it will really help.
mental rehearsal is the brother of visualisation. a effective method of mental rehearsal is going down to the track, or pits, or field, or court of whatever, weeks/days/hours before a meet and game, and just stare at the track. just stand there, and look, and just picture youself, see yourself flying down that track. sit down and see yourself warming up, see yourself seeing yourself sprinting. the key is, get down to the environment to which you will be competing at and just visual and rehearse what you will accomplish.
visualisation can be very effective, if you know how to use the power. it can be learnt and mastered overnight (nothing can). just have a go at visualising the perfect meet for 10mins every day, or visualising something else, and just work on making the image clearer and more realistic and the such.
we all have the power to transform, whether its physique wise, time wise, distance wise, job wise etc etc. but we need to visualise what we will look like, what we will do for the future so when it comes to that time, we know what to do.
hope this article helped some guys, i will be posting more under different topics over the coming days.
Keep Up The Training
