Book about mental training

Postby BigE » Mon Jul 27, 2015 6:49 pm

There was a book mentioned once about high performance mental training... maybe something about the zone?

Does anyone remember what it was called?

Thanks.

You already get most of what you need and how to train here on this forum, and the rest of that book is rubbish. If you think if you are going to ski like Hirscher because talent doesn't matter, you bought into the book and you are going to be a very frustrated person. Reality hurts, sorry.

Actually no, that was not my conclusion after reading the book.

My conclusion was that it is necessary to train the correct movements in the right manner. It is necessary to be able to detect and correct while training the correct movements - what the book calls "deep training". Training without detection/correction is hit and miss, but probably it is miss.

The other conclusion was, if you are going to ski like Hirscher, you better start using the correct movements early in life. Early life is when you have plenty of myelin in the body and have not yet wrapped any other circuits that may interfere with performing the correct movements.

There are still sports out there that insist such detect and correct training with focus on "unnatural" movements will not work. They believe that only repetition will work, and that repetition will naturally lead to *your* correct and efficient movements. You will become as good as you can be.....

I think that is rubbish. One must be aware of how they move, and how they intend to move. People don't want to be limited to being as good as their *current* movements allow. They want to be as good as those that perform the *BEST* movements.
