Pass The PMA Test
PMA stands for Positive Mental Attitude and this test is simple too.
For the next 21 days don’t think or say anything negative about your tennis game.
“The reason why this test is so important for practice is because, your attitude is going to determine your results in them.”
The key secret that many competitive tennis players don’t know is that,
Their negative attitude is blocking them from making any real progress in practice.
Just remember this.
Your success is tied to your attitude, so for those players that are struggling with their mental game now, take a hard look at the type of attitude you are taking to practice everyday.
Write Everything Down
Think on paper and write down your practice plan and also picture yourself doing them in your mind while you are doing this.
The best way to do this is to write it down after practice.
Then look at it again before your next practice, by recording things down, you will gain clarity and focus and this alone can help you become more efficient in practice.
This can also help you reduce the amount of stress you are feeling on the court and boast your energy level up.
Make The Adjustments
You have to make the needed adjustment before, in and after practice if you want to become more successful with them.
The one big mistake that many tennis players make, is that they don’t make the adjustments that they need to everyday.
They just keep doing the same things over and over again and they expect different results from doing that.
Here are some examples.
When working on a drill, you should never miss 3 shots in a row.
Because if you miss the first one, and make a adjustment, then if you miss that one too, you can then make the last tweak and make the shot.
You can do this with a playing pattern too.
Anytime I see a player in practice, not getting the right results, I soon find out that they are not working the drills right.
It’s the not the drill that is the problem, it’s the player who is working on the drill, that is the problem.
See if you can implement these 3 tips for practice as soon as you can.
But first, make sure you pass the PMA Test.
That is a hard test, so it make take you a while to do it, but get that done first and then focus on bringing on board the over 2 practice tips as well.
