Use mental training to maximize sport performance

In Inside Sport Psychology, Dr. Costas Karageorghis and Professor Peter Terry present a comprehensive guide to using mental training to maximize sport performance.

Presented in a user-friendly format, the book covers key aspects of sport psychology, including the most effective methods for enhancing performance and preparing mentally for important competitions, as well as areas of ongoing study.

Integrating up-to-date research findings with real-life events, the authors include psychological principles associated with over 20 sports, including football, rugby, tennis, golf, shooting and track and field.

Mental imagery is also discussed, with tips for athletes on adopting a positive mental attitude and managing fluctuations in mood to maintain consistency in performance.

By explaining what works and what doesn’t, this is a superb resource for athletes and coaches wishing to incorporate sport psychology into training and competition.
