Mental Training Plans

  • Not in practise, not in competition
  • Preparation is an individual experience!

Why plans are important in competition

  • So athlete can automatically respond in competition
  • Allows athlete to CONNECT to thoughts and feelings
  • Prevent stress that arises from lack of control
  • Best method to control pre-competition anxiety
  • Minimize unnecessary decision making
  • Small details make big differences in meets
  • “Without training plans “get good at doing bad things”

how to visualize
How To Visualize?
  • 1. Find a relaxed state for both your mind and body (i.e.) deep breathing
  • 2. Determine what senses are your strengths (start with what you are good at). Later add the other senses.
  • 3. The two KEY senses are SEEING and FEELING the experience. If you can do any of the other senses…like smelling wax– you are well ahead

  • 4. Focus on trying to be in the same position that you physically perform the skill.
  • 5. To help “get” feel move when you visualize…just a bit.
  • 6. Add powerful words that help you acquire the correct senses.
  • 7. Practise, before you train, during training and after training. This will help you get prepared for training, warm-up your mind and allow you to review practises.

how do i know i am visualizing correctly
How Do I Know I am Visualizing Correctly?
  • 1)Are you performing correct images?
    • Erase the image “we do not want to train our muscles incorrectly”…..only perfect images should be retained….wipe away the others
  • 2) Time yourself – you should visualize to the exact second of your physical performance
  • 3) Rate your self on a scale of 1 to 5 for each of the senses, clarity and detail.
  • 4) Try to do mostly internal images…that is images from your view not the spectator or observer view!
  • 5) What do I visualize – start with what you are good at…..
why do i visualize
