If you want to achieve your goals, you need to identify your weaknesses to be able to succeed. Ignoring these gaps can leave you exposed, especially in a tight competition or when your opponent decides to exploit them.
How do you identify areas of improvement?
- Performance Analysis – Keep track of data to identify your strengths and weaknesses. It is also a way to quantify your training and performances to better understand what you need to work on.
- Coaching – Get a coach to help you identify and improve your game while maintaining the strong aspects. A coach can help improve your biomechanics, mental strength and the way you approach training and competition.
- Training – Incorporate training sessions that will help you excel. You can get these ideas from a coach or from a more experienced athlete.
