Exercise 127 Alphabet Gymnastics

Let's do a drill to limber up your mind for the exercise to follow. Have a partner begin uttering words from 6 to 15 letters long and you guess as fast as you can the number of letters in each word after your partner utters it. After doing 20 or 30 words this way, proceed to the exercise below.

This is an exercise to prepare you for the exercises to come. Take a sheet of paper and PRINT the alphabet in block letters and visualize each letter as you do this. Then look away and hold the entire alphabet in your mind's eye. Keep looking back at it and then away again until you succeed. Now remove the sheet of paper and print the whole alphabet backwards from memory alone. Then check for mistakes and write the alphabet backwards again. Keep repeating the process, but each time without looking at previous attempts. Do this until you can write the alphabet backwards 20 times perfectly.

Now while visualizing the alphabet in its forward order, intermingle the order of the alphabet in a 1-3, 2-4, 5-7, 6-8 fashion.

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 23 A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W

A C B D E G F H I K J L M O N P Q S R T U W V X Y Z

Do this drill each time from memory alone until you can write the sequence successfully 20 times.

If you mastered the preceding drills, this one should flex your mind's potential a little. Now hold the alphabet in your mind's eye and transpose the alphabet backwards in a 26-24, 25-23, 22-20, 21-19 manner.

26 25 24 23 22 21 20 19 18 17 16 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F 5 4 3 2 1 E D C B A Becomes:

Z X Y W V T U S R P Q O N L M K J H I G F D E C B A

Copying will not strengthen your mind, so do this drill from memory 20 times perfectly.

Now for the final drill in this exercise, transpose the letters of the alphabet in a 126, 2-25, 3-24 order. It should look like this:

A Z B Y C X D W E V F U G T H S I R J Q K P L O M N

Do this drill 20 times in succession perfectly, but remember -- from memory only each time. From the "Exercise -- Alphabet Gymnastics" pivot many of the exercises to follow, so make sure you master this exercise first. If you apply yourself towards these exercises with sincerity, a versatile, multiple mentality will be your reward. Your mind will learn to do what formerly you thought was impossible for you to do!
