In training cyclists and doing studies consider three things....

1.The Mind ............get anxious on start line of an important race (important value based, social pressure etc), rise in adrenaline/cortison levels - self talk "I need the sh*ter"

2. The Body..........Responds by moves toward the sh*ter, complete task, back to the start line. The Mind - self-talk - "what a load off". More self talk - "right then, lets kick some major ars*"

3. The Spirit..........more complex, this is the third dimention. Can't be studied. It is when you have more balls than the scientist/psychologist/physiologist in combo.

Now is that an evidence based statement? I think you probably need to back that up with some peer reviewed papers and scientific research!!:D:rolleyes:

I have noticed that in my professional and sporting life, I am motivated much more by fear of failure than desire for success.I don't think it's a good attribute and May be monkey related.
I wouln't mind a few sessions with the good Dr to sort me out.

Vics said this is a baiting thread.

Pedro accused me of being a troll!

And I think the dodgy Dr Peters just caught another big one!:rolleyes:

Despite the BC cyclist's success, I think the answer to this thread is a resounding, "Yes".

"Beard" would have been a good word for it too.


I'm not sure if Peters was even in the Liverpool dug-out at Turf Moor yesterday because football has, largely, decided he's not worth following now that his aura has, well, receded. The idea that he might have been capable of psychologically manipulating a team into winning their club's first title in 24 years was hopelessly seductive.

Delivering British cyclists, Chris Hoy and Victoria Pendleton, to the top of the Olympic podium was one thing, but restoring Liverpool to the summit of English football would have taken Peters's reputation into another galaxy.

A sports physiologist can only do so much; blatantly Liverpool were greater than the sum of their parts last season and their confidence was off the scale. I'm not convinced the manager was the source of that either. But then you sell your one world class player and no amount of psychology can make up for it

I was going to close this thread, but the article is recent and gives an accounting of this clown as a "mind guru" charlatan.

Australian Aths coach is now going to one of the Melbourne Soccer clubs, think the red one, is it "Heart" who had Aloisi as coach, doubt he would still be coach, they usually last about 18months per is fudbol in Australia.

the former Liverpool sports scientist made his way back to Australia about 24 months back, and you should see his new team, Port Adelaide, and how they are "performing".

Bringing back some nice hints from Merseyside. Or Mersyside.

do they grow cows there? it sounds like a cow growing city? Or is it just a port? Mersyside, good for bovine. That should be the city's slogan. They have a few dairy and beef towns in Australia that could be sister-cities.

Brad, you would be Eric's brother by the same father would you not? I like the familial genes for flying leg kicks. Reminded me of Ron Artest at Indiana PAcers running into the bleachers to go the knuckle with fans. I preferred Ron Artest to Meta World Peace. I think his ambition was above his station. He should have started with MEta Fan Peace. Sometimes, being humble, is an underrated trait. Atleat i think so.

Who is it with PAFC? It was pretty blatant right from the start of 2013.

Heart is now Melbourne City - part of the Man City/NYC group, Van't Schip is their manager again.

Darren Burgess. but dont forget that PA is the home of the cycling AIS and Neil Craig and Charlie Walsh.

And I had mail that Manolo Saiz got his igf from Gropep in Adelaide that was stung during Operation Puerto. Gropep went out of business about 4 years ago. Gropep (growth peptides acronymish)

Is there a cycling race in Adelaide? oh?

who is the promoter of the race? he on the board of UCI. or was?

oh?

here is Burgess anyway...

oh, and Allan Davis should have won green jerseys, the sport spat him out, when he was one of the talents to come out of del Monte. More talented than the current breed out of Australian cycling currently. Save p'raps Gossie, MAtthews and Gerro.

Davis was at Del Monte?

Agreed he could have been better but ultimately he seemed unwilling to run his program himself.

What someone doing well in a nation that barely knows the game, a basic rudimentary understanding of tactics like when to pass and move, how to play the offside trap and knowing a trick like the Cruyff turn and the A-Leaguie is yours, bit like a Sunday morning pub league
