While others can be paralysed by it. This rock climbing video gives a very practical, real life demonstration of overcoming fear and anxiety about taking a fall.

Mental skills personal experiment (4): Back on track - 0 views

  •  
    This is the third day I follow the whole plan, including breathing exercises, meditation, zhan zhuan and the scheduled workout. The first day is always a bit hard after I stop for more than a week, but I believe it is pretty much like training in general: people who have practiced before have some sort of "practical memory" and they recover their ability fast. In strength training, people have different (yet not sanctioned by the scientific community) names for this: muscle memory, neural memory and others.

Does Practice Make Perfect? - 2 views

  •  
    For years, sport science and motor control research has added support to the fundamental assertions that "practice makes perfect" and "repetition is the mother of habit". However, many questions still exist as to exactly how we learn these skills. What changes happen in our brains when we teach ourselves a new task? What is the most effective and efficient way to master a skill? Do we have to be actually performing the skill to learn it, or could we just watch and learn?

Federer and Nadal Can See the Difference - 0 views

  •  
    How do tennis professionals like Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal manage not only to see, but estimate the speed and movement of the ball, before deciding how to play their shot? Are they born with the visuomotor systems to meet the "interceptive timing task requirements" of their sport, or can they be trained?
