A few times each year we will post a mental training 'food for thought' that will help you reach your full potential. These tips & tricks for a stronger mental game can be applied to your athletics, academics, and life in general. You're putting the physical effort into the pool to get your body in prime condition to perform...are you doing the same for your mind?

The information below is from Oliver Poirier-Leroy, founder and author of Conquer the Pool: The Swimmer's Ultimate Guide to a High-Performance Mindset. His book and subsequent articles in SwimSwam, USA Swimming, Swimming World, and below are considered top of the field with practical application and in-depth research. We hope you find this information helpful in your pursuit to become 'your best possible athlete'.
