MENTAL SKILLS AND DRILLS FOR TRACK & FIELD
Athletes put in numerous hours of training to shape the body. You train to become fast, strong and powerful! You train hard, running, jumping or throwing, to be the best you can be. But are you doing everything you can to be the best you can be?
Athletes often train the physical component with a well-planned, systematic program that focuses on the physiological aspects, yet the mental training tools have not been provided and practiced. Mental skills training is often not an important component of training because few athletes and coaches are ever formally exposed to mental skills and drills.
How important is the mental side of athletics? How ironic that both athletes and coaches consider mental skills to be an extremely important part of high performance, but yet do not take the time to learn and develop a systematic program to develop the mental skills.
The mind controls the body, and as an athlete you want control over what your physical energy can create. Only when you have a fully prepared mind can you reach your full potential and perform at your peak. Like physical training, mental training must be practiced on a consistent basis. Mental Skills and Drills for Athletes has been designed to prepare you mentally to practice and compete to your potential. It supplies practical mental skills and drills that will allow you to develop your mental skills and become a better athlete. Only you can make the decision to commit to the mental program to improve!
