Athletes can practice psychological techniques to improve performance

Metrifit Athlete Monitoring and Well-Being

Athlete Psychology
For an athlete to be successful at any level it is obvious that they must be properly prepared physically in order to cope with the challenges they meet in training and competition. The demands of sport, particularly at elite level, mean that very often an athlete’s physical condition on its own is not enough to ensure success. In most cases, it is the mental strength of the athlete that makes the ultimate difference and, as a consequence, it is not surprising that training and preparation on improving the mental side of an athlete is now a key part of their overall program. Psychology is now a critical part of competition and the mental preparedness of an athlete during training and in the build up to the event can have a huge bearing on how they perform. Also the decisions taken at vital times in competition can make all the difference, along with how they cope with the pressure of the white hot heat of battle. Getting this approach right involves making sure the athlete has the right tools to deal with the mental challenges and anxieties that they experience before and during competition, and the importance of such psychological determinants have been highlighted in recent studies. The findings will be of great interest to coaches and athletes at a variety of levels of sport as they illustrate that not only can they help performance, but psychological determinants can also reduce the risk of injury, illness and burn-out. As we will also see, the good news for those involved in sport is that such psychological skills can be practiced and developed to help increase an athlete’s chances of success.

Helping to improve endurance

In Psychological Determinants of Whole-Body Endurance Performance, Alister McCormick, Carla Keijen and Samuele Marcora, look at how psychological determinants impact on endurance performance, and conclude that psychological skills training could benefit the athlete. The findings of the study are outlined by the authors as follows:-

This systematic literature review aimed to identify psychological determinants of endurance performance. Additional objectives were to evaluate the research practices of included studies, to suggest theoretical and applied implications, and to guide future research. Of the practical psychological interventions identified, consistent support was found for using imagery, self-talk and goal setting to improve endurance performance, but it is unclear whether learning multiple psychological skills is more beneficial than learning one psychological skill. The results also demonstrated that mental fatigue undermines endurance performance, and verbal encouragement and head-to-head competition can have a beneficial effect

Helping to prevent injury, illness and burnout

Meanwhile Psychological Determinants of Burnout, Illness and Injury among Elite Junior Athletes by F. Moen, K. Myhre and Ø. Sandbakk illustrate that psychological variables can be important determinants for the development or prevention of illness, injury and burn-out.
This study was conducted in cooperation with The Olympic department in middle-Norway and the Center for Elite Sports Research, Norwegian University of Science and Technology, leads the authors to conclude the following

Young athletes who aim to be competitive in elite sports need a good physical and psychological health to develop their potential optimally. Thus, athlete burnout, illnesses and injuries are possible threats for young athletes on their path towards elite sports. This study shows that harmonic passion, perceived performance, positive and negative affect, worry and working alliance are uniquely associated with athlete burnout

The authors add that it is crucial for coaches to be aware of the importance of such psychological variables in order to be able help the athlete avoid such potential threats to their hopes of achieving success.

Psychological Skills Training

Being aware of such potential threats is crucial, but even more important is being able to do something about it, and the good news is that expert opinion tells us that skills to deal with such issues can be developed through Psychological Skills Training. PST has been described by Rosie Chee in Psychological Skills Training Critical to Athlete’s Success’ as

the deliberate, systematic practice of strategies and methods designed to enhance an athlete’s performance, by enhancing their psychological skills

We have all seen athletes who appear to be in peak physical condition, but somehow just can’t produce the performance on the big day. Also there are many stories of athletes who can produce their best one day, but despite being in the same physical condition on the next occasion, the performance is vastly different. In Why are Psychological Skills Important for Athletes? we learn that these examples can be explained by psychological and emotional factors which can result in what is often referred to an athlete ‘choking’. As a result the article suggests that it is important to develop strategies that avoid this happening.

This fluctuation in psychological regulation can be prevented by developing cognitive skills and strategies to manage anxiety, stress, negative thoughts and emotions – in other words, to help the athlete to cope with negative stimuli from the external world. An athlete must learn to take responsibility for recognizing their own arousal mechanism and to perform with it under control. This will establish cognitive behavior which in turn will allow him to perform in a constant manner.

In conclusion Chee sums up the importance of psychological skills training in the following way:-

In short, like most other things, the more you use it appropriately, the better you will become. With time the responses practiced and the psychological skills and strategies learnt become automatic. Eventually, this type of behavioral responses becomes a way of life. It comes a way of responding to a particular situation in a more effective, positive, controlled way. These more conducive responses will help to realize your potential in whatever you pursue … Learning these sport psychological skills will last you a lifetime and allow you to enjoy your performance much more at a much higher level than you have previously attained
