PURPOSE OF PREPERFORMANCE ROUTINES
  • Preperformance routines (PPR)s create consistent,
    high-level performance on repetitive, self-paced
    tasks such as free throw shooting, serving in

    shots in golf, archery and shooting.
  • PPRs promote FM, particularly focus, confidence,
    and trust so performance becomes better and more
    consistent.

    because they allow athletes to trust their bodies
    and execute with greater automaticity.
