The Mental Edge
Sport Psychology
Welcome to the Mental Edge! Sport psychology is an emerging field in the worlds of psychology and athletics. For many elite-level, professional, recreational, and even youth athletes, successful performances, cannot simply be reduced to superior physical performance. Concepts such as mental imagery, goal setting, motivation training, and relaxation are the basis for strong mental preparation whether it be for a team or an individual sport, for a coach or an athlete. Perhaps you have heard the phrase, "Winning is 90% mental and 10% physical," or you have considered incorporating imagery to enhance your performance, but you still do not understand everything you would like to know about sport psychology Well in that case you are not alone. Even if you are comfortable with the concepts, you can gain important insights from a sport psychology consultant. The Mental Edge is a source of valuable information whether you are a coach, an Olympic athlete or even a weekend warrior. There is no sport too obscure, or person too good to benefit from the proven concepts of sport psychology. The Mental Edge has provided in depth information for coaches and athletes in all realms of athletics including figure skating, wrestling, basketball, rowing, tennis and field hockey, to name a few. Additionally, we have provided sport psychology seminars for schools including MIT, Boston College, University of Virginia, Cornell University, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, and Boston University.

Visit the FrontPage View in Runner's Web Frame Posted: July 25, 2005 Sports Psychology: Exercise Addiction By Michelle Cleere, Sports Psychology Consultant Introduction While so much society right now is focused on obesity and that fact that obesity is right up there around the #1 killer of American’s, there is another portion of the population at the other end of the spectrum addicted to exercise. Most of these addicts are women, ages 35-60 that are “running on a treadmill for hours, spinning out of control or climbing stairs that lead to nowhere”1 because they have lost their physical, emotional and spiritual balance. They are unhappy in their lives wondering whether or not they have accomplished anything significant and are unhappy with their appearance. This article is going to discuss positive versus negative exercise addiction, addiction and the brain, the personality of an addict, and how trainers might help offset exercise addiction. Positive versus negative exercise addiction Exercise addiction is a psychological and/or physiological dependence on a regular exercise program that is characterized by withdrawal symptoms after 24-36 hours of no exercise. These symptoms may include: anxiety, irritability, nervousness, guilt, etc which only occurs if a person is prevented from exercise due to circumstances beyond their control.2

September 17th 2005 Sport Psychology Uncovered Introduction Sport Psychology is a term which is banded about more and more today in books, magazines, in the media, but in our experience some people are still unclear about what exactly it is and role it has to play. Without a clear definition of what sport psychology actually is, people generally conjure up images of people lying about on couches having their heads read by a psychologist, or imagine that the job involves giving motivational talks to fire people up before the match and shouting words of encouragement from the sidelines. The truth is that there is more to it than that! Without good information, people may also be susceptible to false claims by people that have no professional credentials, and will not impact . We aim to fill some of these gaps by explaining what sport psychology is, what the role of a sport psychologist is, explaining key words and phrases as well as discussing how to embark upon a career and advising where to find out more.

Jaume Cruz
Bellaterra (Barcelona)




ABSTRACT Sport Psychology in Spain has a short history. However, several pioneers played a major role in the international recognition of this discipline, in the foundation of the International Society of Sport Psychology and in the organization of the 1st and 3rd World Sport Psychology Congresses. Despite that, Sport Psychology did not excite much interest among Spanish psychologists until the mid eighties. There was a predominance of laboratory research on perceptual motor skills and personality, during the sixties and seventies.Followed, from 1985 onwards by work on motor development, coach assessment and psychological preparation for competition. In the last decade, Sport Psychology in Spain has consolidated its status among scholars and scientists and is responsible for the creation of stable jobs in Sports' clubs and federations. There is a nexus between this development and the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Barcelona'92. 1.HISTORICAL BACKGROUND TO SPORT PSYCHOLOGY IN SPAIN

Using Pain to your Advantage
By Marlon Familton If bike racing is all about who can suffer the most then certainly asking your body to work beyond the point of comfort in order to stay with a lead group becomes a requirement. Like inanimate pistons of a car motor your legs must continue moving up and down pushing the pedals while your mind ignores the cry of your muscles to stop. Despite your heart pounding and moving up into your throat, your mind has to ignore its pleas and continue sending signals to keep working at that same level of effort. The mind is the key component to this and critical to any success you'll achieve. You can follow a training plan perfectly and prepare your body well, but if your mind hasn't been trained to manage the pain, failure is too much a possibility. This is simply about mental toughness. If you too easily give in to the pain and stop or want some strategies to use when you need to refuse to quit, read on. As cyclists we all know the feelings that occur inside our bodies as the pace goes from moderate to more intense. When the workload becomes painful and the body wants to stop, we start searching within ourselves for the moment when we will give in. Some days we can stick it out a little longer than others, but eventually we reach the point where we make the decision to pull off and slow down. It feels good physically, but inside we know we need to be stronger and somehow should be able to hold on longer before easing up. What I want you to consider is that instead of your mind being either on or off, or in other words instead of mindlessly following the group or maintaining an effort level to the point where our body looks to the mind for permission to stop, involve the brain much earlier. Do this by using the discomfort or pain as a trigger for several strategies.

139. Sport Psychology Mental Preparation And Training For Football Or Soccer
psychology of playing football soccer and sport mind training and mental preparation.
Sport Psychology Mental Preparation and Training for Football or Soccer
The importance of sport psychology in football or soccer is becoming increasingly well recognised with many professional clubs employing psychologists. Sport psychology is sometimes called mental preparation or training, mind games, or mind over matter. The aim is for the team to play football at peak performance in every match.
Mental training or sport psychology is no substitute for skills, and it is vital to emphasise the importance of skills, particularly when coaching youth football. Since the main aim of psychological training is to attain peak performance, it will not help much if your peak performance is poor! The first step is to decide what you want to achieve. Do you have a dream that you wish to make a reality? It's important to discover what motivates you, and to write down a mission statement or creed to provide motivation. Goals should be set for the long term, short term, and daily. A simple example of a goal is to obtain a regular place in the school team, or the town or county team. A daily goal might be to run an extra quarter mile, or to learn a new skill. A short term goal might be to run an extra five miles, score a certain number of goals, or master a set of new skills. It is important to set realistic goals. Becoming a professional footballer is a wish of many young footballers, but few are successful. It is better to set challenging, but achievable short-term goals. After setting goals and finding out what motivates you, there are several perfomance-enhancing techniques to help achieve those goals:
