Do you ever wonder why you go to the gym and sometimes feel lethargic, while other times you are pumped up to set a personal best in your workout? Do you wish that you could consistently practice at high levels of intensity and continually improve your performance with every set and rep of each drill every single time you decide to workout?

If I could show you a step-by-step blueprint to guarantee your success, and allow you to determine the exact outcome of your basketball practice session would you use it?

If you said yes to any of the following questions, then you will absolutely love what I am about to share with you.

It’s a fact that the majority of players who practice their individual skills, do not improve and exceed their level of competency every practice session.

But why….Well for starters these players do not have a focused plan of action that they systematically implement to guarantee their success.

Success is something that is pre-determined, not purely chance.

What I am about to share with you is a modified version of some of the mental preparation strategies that I learned from one of my personal success coaches Mr. Pete Siegal of

Upon learning this information, I have integrated my own variation of the system into the training programs of my elite athletes, private clientele as well as myself.

If you choose to integrate this method that I am about to share with you, then you will watch your physical performance and skill level sky-rocket to new heights that were previously unattainable to you before. You will become instantly focused and prepared for each practice session, and there will be no more guesswork when it comes to your performance on the court, only results.

So if you are still with me, and you are ready for the results then let’s unleash my Pre-Practice Success Blueprint.

45min-hour pre practice

Step # 1 Have your pre/post-workout meals, and supplements ready to go

Step # 2 Consume your pre-workout meal and supplements.

Step # 3 Have your workout log (Chart your shots, passes, dribbles, sprints etc.. and make sure to keep yourself accountable), with your scheduled workout, pen and stop watch packed and ready to go.

Step # 4 Clearly and vividly write and define for yourself the type of practice session you wish to experience that day. ( Ex: Visualize from the time you enter the gym to the time you leave. What type of warm-up will you be doing? What skill sets and drills will you be performing that day? What type of intensity will you bring to each drill? What is your personal goal for that practice session?) To train at a high level for peak performance, the following steps are crucial and must be strictly adhered to in order to unleash your full workout potential!

Step # 5 Clearly and vividly write and define for yourself exactly why you will experience this type of workout. (Visualize why you will experience it Ex: I will achieve my personal best today during my workout because I am mentally prepared, I am free of distractions, I know what drills I am going to perform, I know how to perform them competently, and because of my preparation I will achieve and exceed my goals that I have set for this practice session!)

Step # 6 Clearly and vividly write and define for yourself exactly what type of result you wish to achieve that day. ( Ex: From my the first second of my warm-up , to the last second of my final drill I will be completely focused. Every single rep, of every single drill I practice, I will execute the skills with excellent fluidity, precision at my greatest intensity. I will not be bothered by anyone. This is my workout, and I will achieve my desired results and goal for today’s workout!

Step # 7 Actually drive to the gym you will be practicing at and perform your workout the way you envisioned it. From the time you warm up, to the time you are finished with your practice session, you are in complete control of your workout and are executing your maximum performance that you pre-determined and are experiencing it completely the way you envisioned it through the workout.

Step # 8 Cool down and consume your pre-workout meal replacement and supplements.

Step # 9 Participate in some relaxation exercises and feel like a true champion knowing you have performed your very best workout exactly according to plan!
