When a physical therapist evaluated me a couple of years ago and recommended a particular exercise program, I had no way of knowing how muscle memory and visualization would play such an important role in the exercise routine. The two articles on the P.T. recommendations and the results are Exercise Program – Part I and Exercise Program – Part II.
Three years later I am still amazed how visualization and muscle memory are still a part of my daily routines. For example, I couple of years ago I was concerned that we would have to remodel our master bath to accommodate my inability to safely step in and out of the shower. We started getting quotes and began wondering how I would survive during the construction process.
Today, we still have not remodeled and I believe this is because of three things:
- Muscle Memory
Yet, the main ingredient for success is visualization. Not trying to do something without first thinking it through and visualizing the exact process ahead of time. And, only then proceeding.
