Chapter 6 Overview – Mental training to progress from silver to gold


In the sixth chapter of The Brain and Combat: Brain science in Grappling Competition, we explain the phenomenon of the silver plateau, which affects many regular competitors, often making them leave the game with the feeling ‘it was so close’. With the help of the saturation graph of life, we show how the game changes from technical to psychological from a certain point and what you can do to keep progressing toward gold. It won’t be an accident anymore whether you win or lose; you gain awareness of the competition journey and how you can upgrade your own competition routine.
