How to get out of a mental block

- Advertising -

Hasn't it happened to you that during a game you had a mental block and nothing came out? This usually happens due to a psychological approach that does not allow us to get all of our game on the court. It is when it is said that in addition to playing against the rivals in front of us, we also play against ourselves.

How can we reverse a mental block?

Here we give you a series of tips on how to get out of a mental block:

1. Fight all the balls

Try to fight all the balls as if they were the last match. Even if you know that you do not get to that ball, try it, it will give you confidence to keep trying and it will frighten your rivals who will see how you will not stop.

2. Show your best face

Avoid gestures, shouts and scorn. You must try to show yourself concentrated at all times and that your partner is aware of it. Also, being impassive about anything will cause your rivals to go crazy.

3 Be yourself

Play always to the fullest. If you always play the same you will get used to being at the same level and will fight the same in all matches. However, if you play differently depending on the rivals you have to play against, you may not know how to face the matches, having to think about how to win each of them. 

4. Take advantage of breaks

If you see that you are having a block during a game try to take advantage of the short breaks that they give you between the change of lanes. Analyze what is happening in the game, talk about it with your partner and try to solve it. Even if your rival gets on the track without stopping to rest at the track change, you don't have to do the same. Try to slow down the game.

The more tournaments you play the better. The restlessness and the mental block usually occurs very frequently in the tournaments, and this is the result of not playing with much assiduity. Try to play many tournaments. If you play few you will feel the pressure of the competition and you will not be able to deploy your game.

6. Analyze your game

Think about why you have made certain mistakes. After each error we must analyze from a technical and tactical point of view. Think about it for a few seconds and how you will act on the following points so that it does not happen again.

7. Try to make it easy

If you fail enough, focus on putting the ball in play. If we are not fine enough we tend to block ourselves, to shrink our arm and therefore, we will continue failing. In those moments we have to be simple, try to put deep balls, attacking the middle of the two rivals and in this way we can return to our level.
