In a week when tennis players are falling (Murray, Djokovic, Williams) and the rebirth of a 32 year old, Jermaine Defoe, at International level, readiness in sport seems as prominent as ever. We believe that readiness is about managing workload and optimising recovery at both a physical, mental and emotional level. In our experience sports teams are pretty good at the physical stuff, okay on the mental front and not so hot on the emotional factor, yet the ‘draining tariff’ that accompanies emotional issue is a high one. Despair is draining, euphoria is…………well it is also draining, maybe not in the short term, but if poorly controlled can impact performance and fatigue levels. Creating an emotional balance is tough, especially when you are in the spotlight of the world’s press and social media. The physical demands are often non-negotiable, but working on the mental and emotional drainers will only help reduce the demands that go through our systems.
