A study conducted by Dr. Biasiotto at the University of Chicago was done where he split people into three groups and tested each group on how many free throws they could make.
He had the first group practice free throws every day for an hour.
The second group just visualized themselves making free throws.
The third group did nothing.
After 30 days, he tested them again.
The first group improved by 30%.
The third group did not improve which was expected.
The second group improved by a MASSIIVE 22% without touching a basketball!!!!
that’s only an 8% difference between mentally rehearsing or visualisation and actual one doing it in real life
What this shows is that your brain doesn’t actual know the difference between the experience you actually have and the one you vividly remember
imagine what you could do if you implemented both practice and the mental rehearsal technique of visualization.
The sky is the limit.
You can apply this to Sports or any goal in any aspects of your life.
