Picking a Good Coach

The Brain and its Role in Sports Performance

As a fighter you know the importance of training to build your muscles, your reflexes - diet and nutrition to maximize muscle mass and minimize body fat.   But if muscular development and minimal body fat is all that it took, then a great athlete would not only be great in boxing, he would equally be great in all sports - gymnastics, tennis, football - which is not the case.

What few athletes understand is that the ability to perform well in one sport - is more dependent on the neural pathways that are developed in the brain by practicing a specific sport than the actual muscles that are developed or the body fat that is minimized.   

This means that you as fighter want to do two things:

1. Minimize trauma to the brain that enables you to be World Class.

2. Maximize neural pathway development so you can be world class.

This section of the site will address these two topics so you can maximize your potential as a fighter.

Optimizing Athletic Performance with Sport Psychology

Sport psychology is an interdisciplinary science that incorporates knowledge from many related fields including biomechanics, physiology, kinesiology and psychology. It involves the study of how psychological factors affect performance and how participation in sport and exercise affects psychological and physical factors. Besides instruction and training of psychological skills for improved performance, applied sport psychology includes work with athletes, coaches, and parents regarding injury, rehabilitation, communication, team building, and career transitions.  Given its importance, Protect The Pug has created Pug Psychology where field experts are invited to proffer their expertise and wisdom to help athletes achieve their fullest potential.
