Il training mentale e una tecnica di allenamento basata sulla simulazione mentale di un compito motorio. Questa strategia e utilizzata con successo nell’ambito della psicologia dello sport per aiutare gli atleti ad aumentare le proprie abilita. Nel presente contributo, si descrivono la progettazione e la valutazione di una nuova tecnica di training mentale, il Training Immaginativo-Musicale, che combina l’immaginazione motoria e l’ascolto musicale allo scopo di rendere piu efficace il training mentale stesso. La procedura e stata sperimentata in due diverse discipline sportive: basket e softball. I risultati hanno mostrato che questo approccio integrato ha migliorato la prestazione motoria rispetto alla condizione in cui gli atleti hanno effettuato il solo allenamento fisico, con particolare riferimento alla dimensione del coordinamento.

Keywords: Training mentale, immaginazione motoria, musica, sport.
