Default Phelps - stress simplicity - do well known, mundane things consistently

Bowman once stepped on Phelps’ goggles before a race, cracking them, so that they would fill with water and teach him how to race blind. That came in handy when Phelps’ goggles filled with water at the Beijing Games, in a race he won.
Lately, Bowman has employed a new technique that includes swimming with blacked-out goggles, so that swimmers can imitate the ideal strokes they’ve watched on video. He says it eliminates bad habits.

He mostly stresses simplicity. “We just do the well known and mundane things consistently and at higher level,” he says. “Maybe there is some more care and more attention to detail, and more enthusiasm.”
