Thread: Any good sports pyschology books?

    I liked In Pursuit of Excellence by Terry Orlick and The Grappling Game Plan by Lloyd Irvin. Got a lot of good information from those. Wrestle to Win! by Beasey Hendrix was ok too as it's grappling specific.

    Lloyd Irvin's CDs were interesting but basically covered what's in the book. Just got sent some Paul McKenna Sports Performance audio files but not listened to them yet.

    Although CDs and books can be useful the best psychological advice I usually get is directly from other people. Speak to your coach.

    It's a package of a couple of books (a basic sports psychology book and a workbook of exercises), a set of CDs (basically covering what's in the books) and a DVD (Mike Fowler on his competition gameplan).

    Can't remember how much it was, but it was expensive.

    I got it from Lloyd Irvin. You had to pre-order it at the time, not sure if you can get it anymore. I've seen the workbook and CDs online to download a couple of times so you might be able to find some of it.

    A lot of the information is available elsewhere and it's not perfect but it's specific to combat athletes and I did learn a lot from it. Worth the money? I don't know, but it was good and very convenient getting it in one package.

    I could do with something on cd or maybe a podcast to listen to while driving or running maybe, I seem to take information in better that way.I don't mind spending money (not loads though) as it's something I need to sort. I mean,I'm not after being a pro or anything,I just want to be the best I can be,and it appears to be holding me back right now.
