9780071408080: Train Tough the Army Way : 50 Sports Strategies to Out-Think, Out-Train, and Out-Perform Your Competition

An athlete's guide to becoming as tough as nails, the Army way

In this hard-hitting, no-nonsense guide, Lieutenant Colonel Mark Bender offers athletes the proven mental-training techniques developed by the military to prepare warriors for battle. An accomplished athlete, award-winning coach, and former athletic director for the European Allied Forces, Bender used these same techniques to prepare 10,000 soldiers for Operation Desert Storm. His mission in Train Tough the Army Way is to shape the way athletes think in order to improve their performance in any sport.

Taking the practical, no-holds-barred approach one would expect from a military physical trainer, Bender tells readers how to get their minds right, prepare for competition, work effectively as team members, deal with distractions, hone a warrior's winnertake-all attitude, and more. By following the mental-conditioning techniques described in this book, readers will be poised to meet any athletic challenge, crush the competition, and have a great time doing it.
