Practice makes perfect when it comes to just about anything – especially physie. And while you can learn all the necessary skills in class, practicing outside of the classroom is what will really help your physie excel.
Improving your physical culture technique at home takes discipline and focus. Here are some of the best tips on how you can easily improve your routines in the comfort of your own home.
Schedule Practice Time
Just like your lessons, you should also schedule a time to practice your physie at home. A schedule will help to hold you accountable, and make it easier to remember when it’s time to practice.
Know Your Positions
It's important to know exactly where each position needs to be. Print out our EP Positions chart and have it handy at home when you practice. A copy is always available on the Members page of our website.
Class is best suited for learning the syllabus and for guidance from your Teacher. Practicing at home is best for working on those corrections and mastering the moves before the next class. The more repetition of the movements, the easier your routines will become. But remember the corrections from your Teacher, practice does not make perfect, only perfect practice makes perfect!
Muscle Memory Is Real
Muscle memory is the act of committing a specific motor task into memory through repetition.
While your muscles themselves can’t actually remember anything, they are full of neurons attached to your nervous system that play a role in motor learning. Any movement requires brain activity, and repeating a movement enough times triggers recognizable patterns in your brain. "Practice puts brains in your muscles".
