Duration of Physical and Mental Execution of Gymnastic Routines


ln this experiment, differences in the temporal organization of routines in ar­tistic gymnastics executed under mental and physical conditions were exam­ined. Twelve elite female gymnasts performed their floor routines mentally, then performed the same routines physically. On each of three days, the per­formance was filmed, and the durations of the mental and actual routines were timed .The results showed that mental movement times were shorter than physi­cal routine times. It was concluded that the speed of visualization depends on the situation in which the gymnasts visualize as well as on the fonction That the athlete attributes to the use of imagery. We observed a trend when compar­ing the different stages of the relative duration of mental and actual routines. If confïrmed, we hypothesized that the lengthening of the relative duration of certain stages under mental conditions could be linked to the perceived diffi­ cuJty of the gymnastics elements.
