PRE CLINIC PRACTICE PREP

The process of practicing a skill, recording yourself, and assessing the videos creates a powerful feedback loop for improvement.

By capitalizing on the benefits of self-observation and analysis, you can identify weaknesses, refine techniques, and progress more effectively toward mastering your mechanics.

Challenge yourself to keep repeating this ‘Practice, Record and Assess’ process as many times as you need so that you can pinpoint specific errors or mistakes in your performance.

Estimated At Home Practice: 15 – 20 minutes
