It was a fantastic discussion. Josh and Jen discussed Jen's fitness background, definition of visualisation, example use of visualisation, how to use visualisation, when (and how often) to use visualisation techniques, research on visualisation - looking specifically at athletic performance improvements, practical example using one of Josh's strength-training goals (NB : if you'd like to work with Jen on one of your own goals, contact details are below), use of visualisation techniques for goals other than strength-training, how to improve and progress; and a whole lot more. If you're ready to Incorporate Visualisation Techniques in Your Own Training, make sure you watch this one.


There were several great resources mentioned during the discussion, including Josh's Get Mental Strength ebook and the upcoming Toronto Pro SuperShow. And if you'd like to work with Jen directly, or just to find out more of her thoughts on the mental side of strength training, you'll find her at :

NB : To give you a taste of these incredibly powerful visualisation techniques, Jen's graciously offering a complimentary 30min 'Mind Strength' Skype Call. Cheers Jen.
