Hey, Athletes! How do you prepare yourself mentally for a workout? Do you have a certain mental practice? How about for competition? This week we are talking about the mindset of elite performers.
On this week’s episode, we talk about how mindset is EVERYTHING! We dive into Joe’s race in Colorado this past week, Jerred’s bike race prep, and the difference in elite athletes. We break down this week’s study and find out that elite athletes attribute their achievements due to their mental state vs. their physical state.
We also had one of our very own Eo3 athletes on the podcast to talk about his Navy Seal Kokoro journey and his other epic event coming up later this year.
Lastly, we go over this week’s MYS workout called River Heist.
