Visualize Who You Want To Be, Then Work To Make It Happen.
Visualizing your routine prior to taking the mat is a common practice with competitive cheerleaders. To ensure total focus on the two and a half minutes ahead, marking through your routine helps connect your mind to your muscles.
While some teams mark through their routine occasionally, the entire program of Top Gun All Stars is religious about their pre-performance visualization ritual. "I found a video that talked about tests being done on athletes proving that the same neurons fire up when they visualize as when they actually perform," explained Top Gun All Stars Gym Owner Victor Rosario. "So in essence, visualizing is like getting extra reps."
"We learned that mental repetitions are just as good as physical repetitions when it comes to cleaning," explained Top Gun All Stars Gym Owner Kristen Rosario. "If the mind can see the body doing it correctly, then the body actually can."
It's like having a good full out & confidence booster before hitting the floor.YOSO's pre-performance rituals paid off; they're headed into Day 2 on top in the L5 Large Sr Restricted Coed division! Watch their full Day 1 performance HERE.
