Is the Baseball Training Aid Subliminal CD Hokey Pokey??
Does listening to this cd that just plays oceans really improve your baseball skills?
Swing Smarter Response:
Jose!!! Holy cow, I thought you were kidding, and then I found the site online selling this CD/MP3. Here's how it supposedly works (according to their website: RealSubliminal.com)...
"It is designed to target your unconscious mind and reprogram you with the mental qualities of the professional level baseball players. Here is how it works:
- Subliminally train your mind to improve your baseball throwing techniques, baseball pitching techniques, and general baseball skills by targeting your unconscious mind for baseball success.
- Align your unconscious mind with the goal of being a star baseball player, remove the mental barriers to success, and increase your drive to achieve your dream!
- Reprogram your mind to stay balanced, avoid "cold streaks" and keep you "in the zone" consistently to give your peak performance at all times.
Scripts used in the recordings:

They even have a sample 60 second recording on the provided link above (mp3 format)! Now, I'm not totally closed minded to something like this because I do believe the sub-conscience mind is very powerful.
Although, here's what happened to me when I listened to the 60 second sample
I sat in a chair at my computer, fingers interlaced in my lap, while listening to the ocean sounds I had this strong urge to...umm...pee! :D
All kidding aside, although it did make me have to go number 1, I want to hear from my Swing Smarter brethren, if you've ever tried and had success with something like this? The CD version is only $17.97, and the mp3 is $11.97, so you're not out that much??
I do believe in mental preparation, but have never done anything hypno-therapeutic. I would LOVE to hear from you guys...PLEASE comment below...
