Quick Reference

The process, performed by an athlete on himself or herself, of increasing the level of activation. Mental strategies, such as positive self-talk, and psyching-up procedures (e.g. thigh slapping) are often used as self-activation methods to enhance strength and muscular endurance, especially when an athlete is feeling lethargic.
