As you know, building a sports form should take place in the best conditions for each player’s predispositions, and his mental health is as important as physical condition. Without a properly clean head, calm thoughts, not bothered by sadness or a feeling of frustration, the results can be different, and sometimes even impossible to overcome.

As you know, building a sports form should take place in the best conditions for each player’s predispositions, and his mental health is as important as physical condition. Without a properly clean head, calm thoughts, not bothered by sadness or a feeling of frustration, the results can be different, and sometimes even impossible to overcome.

Study
Researchers from Texas decided to examine at what level sadness and frustration affect sports performance. The experiment was carried out on 135 students who were tasked with training for 12 weeks. The training was performed twice a week on a significant load, large muscle groups were trained, and the exercises were multi-joint, basic, which usually are hosted in complex plans.

Researchers conducted a questionnaire where they were asked if they had lived through the stress of life over the last three months. Thanks to that, they divided them into two groups. A group with low stress, as well as a group with high life stress.

Results

In the group with low life stress, muscular strength in the extensions increased by 13%, while in the squat by 25%. The group with high life stress recorded much smaller progress.

Conclusions

If you have been subjected to high stress on a given day, it is better to stay at home that day or make an appointment with friends who will help you survive the hard times. Performing a workout aimed at progression may be difficult on that day. What’s more, stress can affect not only results on an ad hoc basis, but also keep your negative effect for longer.

The mechanism of negative stress is quite simple and is mainly related to the action of cortisol itself, which, as we know, is not conducive to building a sporting form.
