Before we get into discussion on how good athletes can become GREAT athletes Tre'Quan Smith Saints Jersey , iwe do have to recognize one fact: Yes, there are some elite athletes who are just built different. Lance Armstrong has those alien-sized lungs that helped him improve endurance and improve speed. Michael Jordan has kneecaps that are not like other kneecaps on this planet, and those kneecaps came in awfully handy for overall accelerated sports performance. Some elite athletes have vertical jumps that defy all logic (and the gravitational laws of nature, to boot), while others have natural inclination toward gaining strength and agility faster than others.
But even if a person has the biomechanics to be an elite athlete Marcus Davenport Saints Jersey , there are many other factors that go into creating that elite athlete … case in point, some people are born with amazing biomechanics and choose “couch potato” as their primary source of athletic activity others have embraced great coaching techniques.Becoming an elite athlete isn’t just about being put together correctly. It’s not even just about improving speed, improving strength or improving balance and agility.
Elite play occurs when an athlete is dialed in at all three levels – physically, emotionally and mentally. And, as sports psychologists are proving time and time again Sheldon Rankins Saints Jersey , it’s more a mental game than anything else.As an athlete, you probably hear it all the time: “Get your head in the game!” or “It all starts in your head!” But in most cases, even the parents, coaches and trainers barking that sort of comment at you don’t really know HOW to help you change it.
Few experts (sports psychologists included) really study the mind. They often recognize that results in your game are caused by “where your head is” in the game, but few people understand how to get into the deep-seated thought patterns that literally run your daily game FOR you on the field Alex Anzalone Saints Jersey , on the court, in your study habits, in your relationships and in every waking moment of your life!
In fact, the deepest-seated thought patterns in your head … those thoughts you aren’t even consciously aware you’re thinking … are primarily responsible for how quickly you can improve your speed, improve your agility Marcus Williams Saints Jersey , and even improve your strength.Imagine reaching into where THOSE thoughts hang out and operate your life and replacing them with the thoughts that IMMEDIATELY begin making you the elite athlete you want to be!
This can be done. In fact, it’s being done already by advanced sports psychology strategies that only a few individuals are keen to. The company, SportsMindSuccess is one such entity that works directly with athletes and coaches, moving past the usual sports psychology shtick to help its clients grasp the truth and reality to taking control of those deep-seated thought patterns to create very fast, inspiring and surprising results in sports performance.
Stop bemoaning the fact that you don’t have Superman kneecaps of steel or a 6’9” frame Ryan Ramczyk Saints Jersey , and start focusing on everything you CAN control that, in the end, will yield the same result as IF you had those kneecaps or that extreme height. It’s not a wild-eyed possibility – it’s a proven, science available to you today!
LUIZ Felipe Scolari was left shaking his head yesterday and Andre Villas-Boas spoke of “a very bad trip” after rain and lightning disrupted their AFC Champions League quarterfinal preparations.
Scolari’s Guangzhou Evergrande is a slight favorite when it visits Villas-Boas’s Shanghai SIPG in the first leg of their all-Chinese clash today.
But both saw their build-ups thrown into disarray by bad weather that lashed parts of China.
Villas-Boas effectively conceded the Chinese Super League title to leader and reigning champion Evergrande following a 1-2 loss on Saturday at Guizhou Hengfeng Zhicheng.
Compounding his and SIPG’s misery ahead of what promises to be a defining week in their season, Villas-Boas revealed that the team’s flight back had been delayed because of lightning in Shanghai. “We had a very bad trip returning from Guizhou Marshon Lattimore Saints Jersey , not only because of the result but because we had problems with the flights and we only got back at 4:30am,” said the former Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur manager.
“It’s not ideal preparation for this game, but we still have tonight and tomorrow to rest a bit.
“We are in a long, competitive run of fixtures and trips and hopefully we can be fresh for tomorrow.”
Villas-Boas, who will come under pressure if he fails to deliver silverware this season Cameron Jordan Saints Jersey , wants to take at least a one-goal advantage back to southern China for the second leg next month against two-time AFC champion Evergrande.
Just as Villas-Boas was speaking a torrential downpour submerged Shanghai, scuppering Scolari’s well-laid training plans at the last minute. The unamused Evergrande coach later ambled in 20 minutes early to a hastily rearranged press conference and repeatedly shook his head and put his head in his hands.
Asked what was troubling him, Scolari — another former Chelsea boss — insisted he was fine. “We understand there was heavy rain in the stadium (where they were to train) so we just moved to another training field, no problem,” the Brazilian said Michael Thomas Saints Jersey , although his body language told a different story.
However, even without midfielder Paulinho, following his move to Barcelona, Scolari is confident of completing an unprecedented double in China and Asia.
No team has won the AFC Champions League three times since the current format emerged in 2002 but after success in 2013 and 2015, the big-spending Chinese powerhouse is in contention to become the first.
Already Alvin Kamara Saints Jersey , Scolari is close to leading the club to a seventh successive CSL title. On Saturday, Guangzhou moved eight point.
