How to Mentally Rehearse Your Weightlifting Competition
The Art of Competition Performance
The Relaxed State
This will take some practice, but can be mastered by most. Lie quietly without movement. The initial concentration should be on relaxing the feet, imagining them turning to liquid until there is very little sensory input from them. When this state of relaxation is achieved and there is virtually no feeling in the feet, the attention can then move up to the lower legs. Again, the attempt is to relax the muscles to the point where the you are no longer aware of their presence and can receive no sensory input. The next area is the thighs, where once again you focus on turning your muscles into liquid until they relax and can provide you with no further sensory input.
