Description

James E. Loehr, one of the world's top sports psychologists, has trained more than 100 world-class athletes - from gold medalist Olympic speed skater Dan Jansen, boxer Ray Mancini, and golfer Mark O'Mara to tennis stars Monica Seles, Martina Navratilova, and Jim Courier. Over a decade ago his bestselling book Mental Toughness Training for Sports became an instant classic. Now, utilizing new breakthroughs and scientifically proven studies, he has devised a completely new toughness program that allows you to play at the very top of your game - every time out.After twenty years of ongoing interaction with the best of the best, James Loehr discovered exactly what takes athletes to their Ideal Performance State (IPS). Some call IPS "being in the zone" and believe it's a rare occurrence. But now Loehr is out to teach you how to trigger your own IPS on demand! You'll be able to conquer negative stimuli that can be both physically draining and psychologically destructive. And you'll gain the heightened physical, mental, and emotional mind/body toughness so vital to success.This groundbreaking book contains all the techniques James Loehr teaches the pros, including methods for overcoming stress and fear, recovering from injuries and shock, and peaking for important competitions. Each chapter contains training assignments suitable for any sport, team or individual, professional or amateur, and comes with quick-to-grasp graphs, exercises, and tips to help keep your goals focused. Complete with a daily training log, this is the essential guide for any athlete who seeks excellence - both on the field of play and in life.show more
