Keywords:Self-regulation, Athletic performance, Motivational training, psychological techniques, Sport psychology
AbstractThis article discusses the importance of self-regulation in sports psychology and how motivational training can help improve this ability. Self-regulation refers to the athlete’s capacity to manage their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors to attain peak performance. Studies show that athletes who exhibit higher levels of self-regulation perform better under pressure. Several factors, such as individual temperamental differences and cognitive functions, can affect an athlete’s self-regulation. Motivational training can help athletes develop self-regulation abilities, such as positive self-talk, goal-setting, imagery, and arousal control. The study aimed to investigate the impact of motivational training on self-regulation abilities in sports. The study employed a Wilcoxon-signed Rank test for data analysis. The research hypothesis stated that motivational training would have a positive impact on self-regulation in sportsmen compared to non-sportsmen. The results could help athletes cultivate a positive outlook and improve their athletic performance.
