Visualization can be a powerful tool in the gym. Use it to your advantage before, during, and after every set. Here’s how to do it…
Before a set, use a personal trigger to motivate you. Here are some scenarios that I envision.
During a set, concentrate on the working muscles. Focus on strict execution. A simple tip to maintain good form when you’re training on your own is to visualize a trainer or coach watching you. This may also improve your performance due to the Hawthorne effect.
After a set, visualize blood, nutrients, and oxygen filling up your muscles to prepare them for the next battle, or set if you will. When the workout is over, go ahead and visualize your ultimate physique as you enjoy your post-workout shake.
