Overtraining: Here's how to deal with a new problem 'unexplained underperformance syndrome'

Overtraining: Here's how to deal with a new problem 'unexplained underperformance syndrome' | Sports | Scoop.it

Athletes can suffer from dips in form, periods where they compete poorly or struggle to train well. At such times, they will probably feel tired and may lack their normal enthusiasm for training; they may also have picked up a cold. Usually these are signs that they need to ease back on the training or take a rest. After one or two easy weeks, the athlete recovers and is back to peak fitness.

 

The scenario described above is considered a normal ‘over-reaching’ response to hard training. Evidence shows that endurance athletes are particularly prone to over-reaching dips in form that require rest. A prolonged period of tough workouts, particularly high-volume workouts, can result in reduced vigour and increased tension or depression in mood states. Muscle glycogen stores are depleted and resting heart rate rises. The testosterone/cortisol ratio is reduced due to lower testosterone and high cortisol levels. Microscopic damage to muscle also leads to raised creatine kinase levels, especially if there is eccentric exercise. These are all physiological responses to training. With rest, these changes go back to normal and athletes can even ‘super-compensate’, which means they recover from the stresses to develop even higher fitness levels than before.

The mind can be the determining factor between success and failure. The mind can also determine how an athlete performs during events.

It's almost time to end this train wreck the head coach Greg Schiano's caused down in Tampa! I knew this guy was a joke last season when he was instructing his players to plow into the opposing team's QB at the end of games when taking a knee with the game over with. You can't treat people like $hit and expect them to respect you and to have your back. He will run back to the college game, but he needs to get his attitude under contro; first in my opinion!

Rose: Verticle Leap Has Increased 5 Inches | Sports | Scoop.it

"Derrick Rose has his head in the clouds. This isn't to say he can't concentrate, is irresponsible or is trying to make it rain meatballs. He's just able to jump really, really high. Always has been.

 

But just as Ricky Bobby wanted to go faster, Rose wanted to jump higher. So he did.Coming out of Memphis, he registered a "no-step" vertical of 34.5 inches and a max vertical of 40 inches. Prior to his ACL injury, he was soaring about 37 inches off the ground. Post-injury, he says he's at 42 inches, per ESPN Chicago's Nick Friedell, much to the dismay of opposing defenses everywhere."

This only supports why Derrick Rose is my favorite player. Even after a heartbreaking injury, he comes back even stronger. Most NBA players who have gottent he same injury never play the same but D Rose is different, his heart and love for the game is too strong to let an injury bring him down. If a torn ACL doestn slow D Rose down, will anything?

20 Most Beautiful Women in Sports

20 Most Beautiful Women in Sports | Sports | Scoop.it

"The one thing that captivates the mind of a male more than anything else is an attractive woman that is also interested in sports, and not in a way that screams out they are faking their interest. Interest in sports from a female allows a male to relate to something that is completely normal to them (unlike talking about something such as shopping), and makes developing a relationship very easy. But too many times, a female will claim to be interested in what is going on in the latest sporting event, be it baseball, basketball or football, but they really know nothing about the sport when it comes down to it."

Six Elements Of Mental Toughness

Six Elements Of Mental Toughness | Sports | Scoop.it
Research and common sense tell us that top competitive athletes succeed because of their physical talents and their dedication to training. However, they also succeed because of their dexterity in dealing with the psychological pressures of a sport. In short, mental toughness and resilience are tremendously important for any athlete aiming to be the best in a sport.

It takes more than muscles and physical skills to be successful in sports. Strenght, endurance and agility can take you far but imagine how much further you can go if you can will yourself to go beyond what the physical aspect can provide.These mental skills don't only make you a great athlete, but also a better person.

Caffeine Consumption and Perceptual Response in Sport - The Sport In Mind – Sport Psychology

Caffeine Consumption and Perceptual Response in Sport - The Sport In Mind – Sport Psychology | Sports | Scoop.it

Caffeine is commonly used as an ergogenic aid by many athletes due to the almost unequivocal support in the literature on the beneficial impacts of ingesting caffeine on submaximal performance.  Its effects have been found to improve upon many paradigms including aerobic, anaerobic and muscular strength through the enhancement of both mental and physical performance (Killen et al, 2013).


Studies have shown that, as compared with a placebo, caffeine improved performance by approximately 11%, however, this finding does not extend itself to exercise termination, as this typically coincides with physiological limits such as maximal oxygen consumption or maximal heart rate, which have not been found to be interfered with through the consumption of caffeine (Doherty  Smith, 2005).  The purported mechanisms behind this have spanned from the augmented mobilisation of free fatty acids and associated glycogen sparring, sympathetic nervous system enhancement, reduction in central fatigue, depletion of neuromuscular conduction block and a potentiation of muscular force output for a given input.  However, the results behind these proposed mechanisms remain equivocal, with each lacking consistent support (Doherty & Smith, 2005).

Resilience in Sport: The Pychological Stamp That Separates The Men From The Boys. | Sports | Scoop.it

“That which does not kill us makes us stronger. - Friedrich Nietzsche

 

Let’s start with a fact: Human beings, technology, Mother Nature are not perfect. Consequently, in sport and the workplace, as in life, you can bet that things will go wrong at some point. We will have bad days (along with the good!), matches that go terribly wrong, weeks when the weekend can’t come soon enough, and general slumps in performance. Sometimes, even when we do our very best, there is no guarantee that will be enough. So, what do we do when things go wrong? How do some people seem to rise above and come out the other side better for it? The answer is…RESILIENCE.

"NFL players are no different than you and me, except they play a game for a living and make an exorbitant amount of money for it. But they have bills, they work, they have families and on occasion and they make moronic decisions. While the majority of these decisions are harmless, sometimes they lead to others getting hurt, a player serving jail time, or both.A lot of the players who make these horrible decisions choose to do so after hitting it big, either making an NFL team for their rookie season or being given a very large raise.

Sport team identification and belief in team curses: the case of the Boston Red Sox and the Curse of the Bambino. | Sports | Scoop.it

“Although research indicates that most people are at least moderately involved in sport as fan, relatively little is known about the cognitive, affective, and behavioral reactions of these persons (at least relative to information on athletes). In fact, in their research of the sport psychological and sport sociological literatures, Warm and Hamlet (1995) found that less than five percent of the research had targeted fans and spectators. Recent years appear to have seen an increase in research on fans, and our understanding of topics such as fan violence, hero worship, perceptions of other fans, and attendance has improved. However, many topics related to the reactions of these persons have yet to be empirically examined. One such topic, and the focus of the current investigation, involves the tendency for fans to believe that certain teams are or have been cursed.”

.Although it is widely thought that legs are the driving force behind an explosive athlete such as an American Football Player or a Basketball player; sprinters and professional athletes gain high amounts of power and speed by pumping their upper bodies.

 

Of course having excess muscular bulk and size can be detrimental to you as an athlete but weight training and plyometric exercises are some of the most commonly used programmes amongst the world of strength and conditioning and the key is to spend a lot of time working out and conditioning your whole body.
