YES IT WORKS VERY WELL
I concur! "Creative visualization" is a great tool I picked up along my journey in powerlift'n. Imagining myself moving a certain goal weight or new "PR" is very gratifying. It has also helped with my focus. I am a strong believer in this technique.
I try to do it just before i fall asleep the night before for witch ever bodypart i will work the next day. i do it till i can fell my bodypart start to kind of ache a little and if im realy hard core that night i can visualize for about 20 min. or so till my muscles start to realy hurt i mean i realy feel it without flexing it and being totaly relaxed. its all mind connected to muscle.
If your open minded, your brains will fall out ^^.
I do it also but I use it to put me in the right frame of mind for the workout. Something that will make me really ticked off, Just during the actual lift though. Like haveing to do arm curls with 10 pound dumbbells and they feel like they weigh 400 pounds. That way by the time I get to doing the reps I know Im going to kick that dumbbells a. . . . . . . Well you get the Idea.
Nothing gets me ticked off faster than haveing to wait because someone Ive never see and might not see again. Who also looks like a stick boy has all the weight I need to use tied up right now. They arent lifting it. . . . they have just. . . set up thier bench. . . . . in such a way. . . . . that no one else. . . . . . can get at the DumbBells. . . . . . .GERRrrrrrr. . . . . .Oh Sorry, maybe its getting close to time to go lift again. . . . . . . .Red
