Jose Silva's Guide to Mental Training for Fitness and Sports: The Silva Method - Think and Grow Fit
You've seen athletes do it at the amateur and professional levels, in all sports:
*Members of the Olympic bobsled team just before their run, eyes closed, their bodies swaying back and forth as they visualize the run.
*Professional basketball players mimicking the free throw, picturing it mentally, before actually taking the ball and shooting it.
*The diver stands on the end of the high board, eyes closed, mentally rehearsing the dive moments before attempting it.
Research has now demonstrated conclusively that when you practice mentally - at the correct level of mind - you will gain almost as much benefit as you will when you practice physically. And when you combine both physical and mental practice, your results are far greater.
Silva Method graduates report they have been able to:
*Learn what they need to know, faster and easier.
*Train their bodies to perform better by visualizing at the correct level of mind.
*Improve their intuition and anticipation so that they do the right thing at the right time more often, automatically.
*Manage pain, and recover from injuries faster.
*Program themselves for success.
Now the world's Number One mind training program, the Silva Method, can show you how.

Test your mind
Here is a short video of a demonstration that you can do for yourself to show how your thoughts can affect your performance.
You can have a friend test your strength as you think about some of your challenges and your successes. You will find that when you are confident, you are strong; when you have doubts, you are weak. Your mind definitely controls your body by directing and regulating the neurotransmitters in your brain.
This experiment was done at the beta brain wave level. The alpha brain wave level, that you learn to use in the Silva Method, is much more powerful. Just imagine how much it can help you to improve your performance when you program yourself for success at the powerful alpha brain wave level..
