When athletes visualize their training sessions, "Research shows that imaging lights up identical parts of the brain that would be energized if you were actually working out," explains Colleen Hacker, PhD, a sports psychology professor at Pacific Lutheran University in Tacoma, WA, who has been the sports-psychology consultant for the Olympic women's soccer team.
Other research shows that when you vividly imagine a biceps curl, for example, electrical and chemical changes occur in the body so that you actually activate some of the muscles involved. "Imaging improves your psychological readiness for your work-out so you're not only more motivated and excited, but you get greater benefits that start the minute you begin exercising," Hacker says. "Being as vivid as you can is one of the keys to making imaging work for you," adds Hacker.
