preparation can effect performance in sport in many ways. first of all a warm is crucial to best performance and it is also used as mental preparation, getting 'syked' for the game or performance. you need preparation to reach optimum arousal. arousal is getting 'your head in the game' but getting to the optimum needs practice as you can be under aroused and over aroused which are both bad. metal rehearsal is when the performer plays over a successful performance in their head, this makes ready for their performance and gets rid of nerves. relaxation- massage, listening to music etc. and also zoning out- just clearing your head of everything and only focusing on your performance, this helps top reach optimum arousal and focus. if you don't prepare for your performance then the performance will be poor and deteriorate.
