When should I use "High Performance Mental Training in Sports"

The most common sign that an athlete needs to work with a mental coach is when he or she is unable to perform up to maximum ability level in competition.

This is often characterized when an athlete is able to perform well in practice, but seems to flounder or freeze up in competition.

Smart athletes and coaches recognize the warning signs–an inability to cope with the pressures of competition, becoming easily distracted, or having difficulty with performance anxiety or fear of failure.

Advantages of mental training / mental coaching:

  • Proper handling of pressure (such as expectation pressure, skill pressure, cadre pressure), anxiety, nervousness and stress. 

  • Targeting the athlete throughout the season by defining goals.

  • Constructive handling of disturbances of any kind Mental training shortens learning times for the acquisition of sports techniques.

  • The mental exercise of a movement process increases the stability of a movement skill.

  • Mental training increases the precision and thus the speed of execution of a movement.

  • Mental training allows relatively high repetition rates per unit time and thus saves energy.

  • Mental training offers a possibility of economization in sports with intensive or quantitatively comprehensive training effort.

  • The use of mental training has proven itself especially in injury breaks to maintain the motion or to reduce atrophic processes.

  • Mental training can be used to simulate pre-start and competition situations: the athlete approaches the competition with less stress because he had the sequence run off several times in the performance.

  • Mental training can be used as a supplement during warm-up, thereby shortening the warm-up times (energy savings).

  • Mental training proves to be beneficial for sports with limited training time (hall, equipment occupancy).

  • Mental training allows "mental" slow-motion studies and thus makes it possible to improve the perception of movement, especially in the case of technically difficult movement sequences.

  • Mental training is beneficial for injury-prone sports.

  • Mental training reduces in sports with increased risk of injury, the fear, as not detected by the intense movement of motion movement elements are detected and thus better feasible.

  • Mental training is good for correcting erroneously learned movement techniques, as the repeated movement can be used to loosen up and re-program old movement patterns.

By learning and training mental techniques, athletes should be able to cognitively regulate themselves, especially in competitive situations, so that optimal performance can be called up. The goal is optimum performance at a defined time.

In competitive situations many athletes do not deal with the requirements of the present time "NOW", eg. For example, with their task and the next steps, but with the framework conditions or situation parameters.
