Loehr has been training world-class athletes — more than 100 of them, from gold medallist Olympic speed skater Dan Jansen to tennis stars Monica Seles and Jir Courier. His bestselling book Mental Toughness Training for Sports became instant classic when it was published in the early 1980s. Now, utilizing new breakthroughs and scientifically proven studies, he has devised a completely new toughness program that allows you to play at the very top of your game — every time out. You’ll learn how to trigger your Ideal Performance State (IPS) on demand and gain the heightened physical, mental, and emotional mind-body toughness so vital to success. This groundbreaking book contains all the techniques Loehr teaches the pros, including methods for overcoming stress and fear, recovering from injuries and shock, and peaking for important competitions. Each chapter contains training assignments suitable for any sport, team or individual, professional or amateur, and comes with quick-to-grasp graphs, exercises, and tips to help keep your goals focused. Complete with a daily training log, this is the essential guide for any athlete who seeks excellence — both on the field of play — and in life.”
