By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

Dr. Rick McGuire, nationally recognized leader in Applied Sport Psychology, presents a vital, but neglected skill on self-talk. In this engaging clip, McGuire discusses that people are highly critical of themselves, and self-talk is the most powerful conversation we can ever have as a person or as an athlete. 

Self-Talk

We all have self-talk. Most people have negative self-talk. Negative thinking is bad. Positive thinking is right thinking. Situations influence our thinking, which influence our emotions which influence our body which influences our behavior.

Learn a Great Drill to Work on Your Max Velocity!

By nate.landas - Last updated: Sunday, June 1, 2014

Cliff Rovelto has experience working with elite athletes and knows what it takes to build championship hurdlers and sprinters. You will learn a great drill for working on max velocity, which helps you maintain form in the later part of the sprint/hurdle events. The athlete will perform an “A” Run with his arms extended over his head.

“A” Run with Arms Extended Overhead

The reason for the arms to be extended overhead is to force the athlete to stand tall when performing the “A” Run. The athlete is staying tall and applying force into the ground with his feet. This drill can be modified for younger athletes by using a medicine ball instead of a bar.
