You’ll hear that phrase more and more these days. Visualise it. See it. See it before it happens, live it, experience it, then make it a reality.
On the latest Rambling Rhinos podcast, ‘The Carlow Kid’ Andy Murphy (1-1) suggests that training has now become a seven-days-a-week affair due to the mental training and preparation that’s required for the modern fight game.
With hands-on experience of this, Murphy recently published audio extracts of a visualisation/imagery session held with Richard Shanahan of Inspire Sport Performance. Shanahan is the featured guest on episode 002 of Rambling Rhinos and works with a growing number of athletes across the worlds of GAA, rugby and mixed martial arts.
The extracts, recorded four weeks out from BAMMA 28 in February of this year lend weight to the suggestion that he had “fought that fight a thousand times” before stepping into the cage.
The finishing sequence against Stephen Kilifin late in the first round is fairly spot on too.
Again, according to the podcast, we may see Murphy back in action under the Battlezone banner this coming September. He had withdrawn from BAMMA 30 in early July due to acute vertigo.
