You want to improve your confidence as you’re preparing for a WOD. You need to know how to quickly get yourself to a place where you are feeling ready and positive (especially when doubtful or negative thoughts begin to creep in).
Your warm-up routine should help you physically and mentally prepare for the workout. Thinking about other great performances that you have had and how much you’ve improved will really help you get the right mentality.
Here are 4 quick strategies that you can use to improve your confidence by recalling past successes.
1. Review your journal and look at some PRs, remember how it felt to hit them
2. Talk with a coach about that last great performance you had and how you dominated the WOD
3. Review a few videos of yourself hitting a big lift
4. Close your eyes and visualize a moment when you overcame and it was awesome
