Using mental imagery of a well practiced motor skill activates the same pathways as the motor skill actually uses. You can actually detect muscle twitches in the systems to be used in the full action.

Thus, you need the learn the motor skill and practice it to move it to automaticity. Then mental rehearsal keeps the system primed and 'lubricated' so to speak.
