Using some of these skills as part of a pre - race warm up can increase your performance by up to 20%, so why wouldn't you invest some time in understanding your mind and applying these techniques.  The use of specific music during a warm-up can really assist an athlete to get into the 'Zone' and mentally prepared for the race ahead. Whilst music isn't possible during an actual race there are many other ways to apply psychological techniques to assist you during a race.
