Quick Reference

A technique for increasing arousal. Energizing techniques are used by athletes when they are not psyched-up enough for their activity and competition. They may also be used to overcome fatigue during competition. Energizing techniques include combining controlled breathing with positive self-talk, positive verbal cues (e.g. ‘explode’ and ‘psyche up'), and imagery. See also psyching-up.
