Super Bowl week and we know how the players are preparing! Only the strong survive!
They're pouring over game films so they will visually recognize what the opponent is trying to achieve in each play. Every split second a player can gain on the other is vital. Knowing where the opponent is headed gives the athlete the edge.
The athletes are using their mind's eye to rehearse their part of each play. They are practicing over and over in their mind's eye realistic outcomes...not fantasy or negative results...just realistic outcomes so that they are prepared for every variation which they may experience..... and how to use those outcomes to their advantage.
This mental preparation is a must because of all the visual noise that is bombarding them. It's the biggest stage in the biggest sport. They can get swept away with everything they see...or get sidetrack by what looks appealing to the eye or psyche. So, their goal has to be to stay mentally focused through this spectacle then they can reach their ultimate goal....holding the Lombardi trophy!!
