Visualization is the key to fine tuning your skills
“I think I visualize a lot, I think seeing it before it happens is the key to success. I close my eyes and it takes me two minutes a day, I guarantee I’m able to make about 200 saves a day in my head.” – Martin Brodeur (NHL-New Jersey Devils)
Visualization is a form of mental rehearsal, which helps athletes feel prepared prior to performance. Mental rehearsal is absolutely safe, and has an equal advantage to physical training without the stress on your body. Mental training gives a unique view and approach to skill execution free of error, plus there is no opportunity to fail. The power of visualization (when performed correctly) should not be underestimated.
