The Sport Psych Show

Apr 6, 2020

I speak with Steve Magness in this episode. Steve is a sport scientist and a track and field coach. He coaches competitors at all levels, including athletes who have competed in the World Championships and the Olympics. He is Head Cross Country coach at the University of Houston, a Lecturer of Strength and Conditioning at St. Mary’s University, UK and author of three best-selling books, including the latest: The Passion Paradox.

We speak about power posing in science and in practice; how feelings mediate an athlete’s performance; challenge vs threat states; the brain/body connection; attention; and the result of failing to develop the psychological side.
