Many athletes routinely use visualization techniques as part of sports training. Those who use them often report that it improves their sports performance, mental awareness and sense of well-being. What do you think? Have you tried visualization techniques to improve your performance? How has it worked for you?
yes, it helps
- I used to compete in biathlon (skiing & target shooting) and we would use imagery to to calm our breathing and "see" the target. I do think it works, but you need to practice over and over.

- Really enjoyed the article, however through my extensive research about sports psychology and the mental game, barrier recognition is a vital part to an athlete's success. I work with not only athletes, but non athletes as well talking about the entire visualization process.
