Mental Toughness

 

I used to love training when I was in international sport. I was fortunate to be able to train with some of the best trainers in the world. The physical training was never an issue for me, training after school and 8 hour days at weekends was great. But when my sport took on a whole new level I needed to up my game. A trainer in the USA took me under her wing and started to train me as they do in the US.

Six weeks I was there and man was I sore.  I was exposed to working with some of the finest artistic athletes, learning to do what they did and how they achieved so much. That’s when I was taught about Mental Preparation Techniques. It is a training area rarely visited and understood in terms of its benefits, not only to sporting performances but to anything you are trying to achieve really.

Mental Toughness

“Once an athlete has mastered all the physical and technical qualities required to be successful on the international circuit, then success becomes 10% physical and 90% mental”

From personal experience I was shown in the USA the value of this technique and once you know how to train your mind to use it correctly.  You will be amazed at what you can accomplish. It is a great tool to focus on when recovering from an injury too so that you don’t become over focused on the injury.

If you are not achieving the results you want from your current training regime, you may need to look at this because having the skills to accomplish a move and then drilled time and time over is one thing, but how can you be sure you will be able to pull that move out of the bag when it counts the most- in the performance arena, on the big day-
