Dry fire with your imagination

Even though visualization helps, it doesn't replace the fundamental techniques that are required. Similar to golf, you can visualize a perfect drive, but if you haven't practiced how to swing a club, you have no chance.

Agreed, however, it will help your game if you already know how to "do it".

I would wager, many in the Super Squad do it before each stage.

Whether they will admit it or not is another question.

To add : did I get off base? I went into visualization before shooting a stage, not for dryfire practice- sorry.

Thought this was interesting. I think it means I can just visualize dry firing without having to do it anymore.

From what that video says that's somewhat true but it also says that the people that only imagined what they were doing didn't improve as much as the ones doing it physically. With that being said that doesn't mean you can't imagine doing it when you don't have the opportunity to do the physical aspect. Truly, dry fire practice is using your imagination to simulate actual course of fire anyways just with a small amount of the physical aspect of shooting.

Watch the video again. Visualizing isn't a complete substitute, but it does demonstrate how powerful the mental aspect actually is.

These types of videos are usually pretty interesting, but they're too short to be exhaustive and it's easy to reach the wrong conclusions from them.

More accurately, I think it means you can visualize all week and then live-fire on the weekend and get similar results to live-firing all week. And that's not too different from the accepted wisdom around here that you can dry-fire all week and then live-fire on the weekend.

Visualization is used in many sports, very effectively. Fist one that comes to mind is aerobatics. Before any flight you can see the pilots standing around turning and spinning, visualizing the entire routine.

I think it was the Russians that really brought modern visualization to sports for gymnastics.

Isn't dry fire really a bit of a form of visualization also?

This knife cuts both ways. Visualize shooting a stage in perfect form.

I think you're exactly right, Picture it perfect with the Conscious Mind because thats what the Subconscious is going to follow.
