Sports Psychology: ' I would be crazy not to use it '
Sports psychologist Mark Schuls talks about dealing with match tension Sports psychologist Mark Schuls gave for K&PP tips to reduce competition stress. ' You can train yourself. ' Horse feels tension flawlessly Over 80 interested persons arrived on Wednesday evening 29 May at Stoeterij Het Swarte Paert, Hemrik to get tips and advice to reduce competition stress. The phenomenon of competition tension knew everyone, the recognisability around blockades in both riders and horses was great. ' A bit of excitement is good, it helps you to perform well. The trickiness in equestrian sport compared to other sports is that your horse feels your tension flawlessly’. Schuls gave concrete advice to reduce the tension. ' Watch your breath, breathe from your abdomen. Breathe for 3 seconds in and 6 seconds out, exhaling means relaxing. Breathe in through the nose and exhale through the mouth. ' Music can also help, provided the music includes less than 100 beats per minute, the sports psychologist indicated. ' When you want to increase the race tension, you can turn music to more than 120 beats per minute. ' From goal to tasks Schuls indicated that a goal set in sport is very important. ' Then you know where you want to go. ' To achieve that goal you give yourself tasks and they are an important gripe when the tension threatens to take over. ' This starts when you look at the starting list. You only have to look for your start time, but then you see which judges are there and who else has to drive. ' Don't get distracted, Schuls gave up. ' At such a moment you go back to the tasks you have imposed on yourself. Do not stare at the result. It's all about having fun and riding with pleasure, then the result comes naturally. ' For all athletes Sports Psychology, or mental training, is widely used to improve performance. ' I would be crazy not to use it ', so a young athlete told Schuls. Psychology is no longer only for top athletes, but important for all athletes. ' Because you want to be better, have less doubt, want to get self-confidence and want to learn to cope with setbacks ', Schuls mentions as examples. ' To finally get the same result on the game as during the training. ' For further information on sports psychology, take a look at the website: www.tiptop-sport.nl
