    Inhaltsangabe

    The greatest athletic performances spring from the mind, not the body. Elite athletes have known this for decades, and now science is learning why it's true. In his fascinating new book, How Bad Do You Want It?, coach Matt Fitzgerald examines more than a dozen pivotal races to discover the surprising ways elite athletes strengthen their mental toughness.

    Fitzgerald puts you into the pulse-pounding action of more than a dozen epic races from running, cycling, triathlon, XTERRA, and rowing with thrilling race reports and revealing postrace interviews with the elites. Their own words reinforce what the research has found: Strong mental fitness lets us approach our true physical limits, giving us an edge over physically stronger competitors. Each chapter explores the how and why of an elite athlete's transformative moment, revealing powerful new psychobiological principles you can practice to flex your own mental fitness.

    The new psychobiological model of endurance performance shows that the most important question in endurance sports is: How bad do you want it? Fitzgerald's fascinating book will forever change how you answer this question and show you how to master the psychology of mind over muscle. These lessons will help you push back your limits and uncover your full potential.

    Good for Motivation.

    Each individual story is a fantastic read / listen. I knew most of the athletes spoken about but a lot of the details of their "fight" for success was new to me. The narration by the author himself was very fitting, it is always so much more enjoyable to listen to someone who knows what he is talking about than listening to someone who is just reading a book out loud who has virtually no idea what it is they are reading. At the end of the book I had the feeling I didn't really learn too much in the practical sense. The author did indeed mention at the beginning at the book that it is not a "how too" book with practical tasks or exercises for the reader to undertake. It is basically a book where each chapter is a different story about an athlete who has employed mind power to override muscular power in a way to achieve something which they would not have thought possible beforehand.

    The motivational value is brilliant, and I will definitely read select chapters again in future whenever my motivation is low. However I am missing that extra part on how can I reach this "mind overriding muscle" condition myself. Only asking myself the question "How bad do I really want it?" doesn't show me how to do it. Of course if I am competing I really want it badly, that is my answer in most every race I enter. But how do I do it? I can't just switch my mind on to override.

    Apart from this I would recommend this book to anyone, especially endurance athletes looking for a motivational boost. This book will do that.

    It was worth it

    It was worth reading it to get an insight into endurance athletes mental states. Sure, it is neither a scientific nor a medical book, but a collection of personal stories under a common theme.
    As an ambitioned hobby athlete I can imagine how to become an Olympic medal winner. But for me that's not worth it.
