Their search for new and innovative techniques which might enable them to achieve these aims is unceasing. This book offers accessible and practical guidance on an increasingly important and proven approach - the use of mental processes to enhance physical performance. It is now recognized that psychology has a key role in sports, not only in improving performance, but also in helping sportsmen and women attain a sense of mastery of their discipline. The book explores the important characteristics in top sporting performance and illustrates techniques and exercises designed to assist athletes to reach their potential. This book should play an essential part in any serious sports performance preparation. It is for coaches and athletes from local to national level, sports teachers, psychologists, professionals in sports medicine, physiotherapy, exercise physiology and nutrition. It is also directly relevant for sports science students on degree and diploma courses."@en ;
