The Secret Area
One of the most powerful terms used in the sports world for decades is the mental state called 'the zone'.
This is the mental state which produces super-human performance, and winning streaks.
Any tennis player who is in this mental state is almost unbeatable on their level of competence.
A player who is in the area experiences an unusual feeling of effortless power, allowing them to feel as if your racket and your body are powered by a turbocharged engine, and found her body sliding down the court and hitting with awesome power and minimal effort.
The strange thing is - this powerful performance does not feel as if being controlled by the player's true!
In fact, you often say they feel as if they were not responsible for some of the amazing scenes in all - as if his body is guided and directed by a force more powerful (and this is exactly what is happening).
Most players at some point in their careers have experienced this feeling, to some extent, and then wonder "how did I do that?" Even at the initial stage in which players seek to learn tennis and still are taking tennis lessons with a teacher or a tennis school, you can see shots or spells that seem to overcome the skill of these beginners.
This is the mystery surrounding the area
Why does so briefly, then disappear as quickly as it came? And especially
Why can not access it all the time?
What is this force that guides our body when it hits an unbelievable shot?
The answer is that the sleeping giant that lies within every human mind and the subconscious, the source of all bodily movement that also stores all the memories of the past and tennis experience.
When a player coming into this state of "The Zone", your conscious mind becomes quiet and it allows your subconscious to achieve a system to automatically execute its, similar to a computer.
This can be achieved strokes, movements and reactions that could have never so conscious.
So, how to enter the area?
Each must find the method that best suits your needs, but there are simple techniques and concentration can cause a state that takes you to enter the area automatically.
The area is actually a somewhat complicated concept but it is extremely important to learn how to enter it, because this ensured that we will have our best game if we are in this area.
To clarify a little more let me give you an example.
Have you ever noticed when someone makes an extremely fast and pull your opponent simply reacts automatically and does a phenomenal return?
On the other hand you see the same situation but this time the serve is slow. Here the opponent has more time, resulting in having the opportunity to think and doubt and eventually increases the possibility of making a bad shot selection.
There are many techniques to enter the area and to maximize your concentration. More on that and we'll give more details in future articles
