Mental Imagery.

Mental imagery, commonly known as visualisation, involves using all your senses to aid in learning and developing new sports skills and strategies, as well as envisioning success.


It's more than just daydreaming.


Similar to physical practice, mental practice requires structure and discipline to reap the full benefits.


While it won't always guarantee success, this intentional practice increases the likelihood of success.


The significance of this practice lies in how the brain doesn't always distinguish between real experiences and imagined ones, utilizing the same brain systems. Therefore, we can harness this to our advantage.


Here's a quick guideline on how to visualise:


Allocate 10-15 minutes before your workout routine or during your rest day, aiming to create a 3D experience.

The key is to visualise from a first-person perspective, not third-person.

You should be able to see, feel, and immerse yourself in the scenario. Ensure you're in the familiar environment where you typically perform and hear the same sounds you would during your lifts.

If you imagine yourself failing a lift, that's okay; start the process again until you envision a successful lift.
