"concentration and metal toughness are the margin of victory."
Despite the large number of coaches who attribute athletic success to mental traits, they most often continue to ignore these factors in training. Most athletes have a standard warm-up they go through before practice and competition that typically includes dynamic stretching, jogging, technical drills, and possibly a few tactical scenarios.
Elite athletes are tuned in to their mind AND body to individualize their warm-up to prime the mind AND prepare the body for their optimal performance.
A proper mental preparation warm-up can get you in the right mindset.
Aware, Breathe, See the success you want, Say affirmation
Awareness is the first step to performance enhancement. The athlete must "check in" and determine if he/she is at the right activation level (IZOF) and if emotional state, though processes, and focus are where they need to be (TAP). The athlete must be fully present and focused on the task at hand.
