Why we love this

  • the video points out the very important fact that practicing in “distraction-free and pressure-free environments” might feel easy, but will lead to worse performance during competition.  Instead of limiting distractions and challenges, athletes should be encouraged to simulate game-like challenges and pressure during practice. Be a step ahead and prepare for the pressure of competition by practicing under it!!!
