    Default Mental Game

    How many use Lanny Bashams tapes or have listen to them?

    There several good books that talk about the mental side of archery. Some good books in golf and tennis are recommended by Lanny as well.

    Lanny has some really good CD's that are worth listening to. A book called Mind Gym is another good read. I read it on the way to Hattie last yr and ended up giving it to a gentlman I shot with that weekend. Can't remember who the author was. Irony huh !!!

    I have read with winning in mind and have listened to his archery cds. I really learned a lot about the mental side of archery. They have definitely helped my archery game.

    All I gotta say is, "if he's so damn smart, why ain't he rich?"
    There's nothing "mental" about shooting yesterday when the wind was blowing 30 MPH, making 40 degrees feel like 20, a new course with snags all in your way on every shot, mud 2' deep, and a winning score of 254.
    Just separating the men from the boys, is what it is...

    Lanny Bassham won a Gold medal in the Olympics. Also a Siver which in turn which taught him to get a mental game. Now he charges $1500.00 for a one on one session. I would say he hasnt done bad for himself.

    Now Paris, Tx is coming up and you can bring that A game there and compeat against the best this month.

    Well I 'spect he's done alright for himself... his list of clients from all walks of life, business and sports is pretty impressive..

    I've also seen the results of his work in several of the top archery pro including Olympic athletes. The difference in their game after working with Lanny was nothing short of phenomenal.

    As for men and boys, come up to Paris this weekend and get you some of them boys....

    Default Ironic

    In Lanny Tapes he does talk about shooting in adverse conditions and keeping the mental focus. Now for someone like him to shoot on a world class level and succeed says something to myself.

    TomT wonder how you would like to compete once ever four years and use your mental game on a world class level. You might need a mental game. Now I would shooting for a Gold medal in the Olympics is shooting with men and not boys. Pressure only some of us can dream about.

    Haven't read his books or seen his videos. Self-help works with some people, others just handle pressure naturally, OR recgonize that "pressure" is all in your head.
    If I had the time, I could come up with a line of BS that a population segment would buy and swear by, but I've been in this life too long and seen too much to take people's money on that pretext.
    Paris? Maybe next year, or when they come to their senses and allow sliders and 1.5" vanes in Hunter class...

    Now there a class for your slider/vanes in ASA. ASA where you seperate the men from the boys. Super Seniors would give you all you want there. Rules are made and we all must follow them at each ASA. Im also old enough to know you give respect due where its due. Guys like Lanny Bassham who have won on the world class level deserve respect. I also know they have somthing that I want. Nothing has helped my scores more than Lanny Tapes giving me a mental game. Your right you dont need it.
    One must first be willing to learn before it would ever help him. Guys like Xquest here and others who have won on the world class level got there mental game down 100% and your right dont need it.

    In any student/instructor relationship the student must be receptive to the knowledge in order to benefit. If they are not, both lose…

    I wonder if he realizes the pressure is intensed on the national level

    Its often easy to sit back and say hey its all BS. But its another thing to step on the national level and win against the best. One thing Lanny certianly makes it easy to understand.

    I've watched a bunch of Lanny's older videos. He has a lot of good information. One of these days after I get my "Change" Obama promised I'll have to spring for the new archery specific dvd's. They get an arm and a leg for them!

    My biggest dissapointment in Vegas was that Lanny was scheduled to do a seminar there and he never showed up. I was there a half hour early and stayed 20 minutes after it was supposed to start.

    The seminars are my favorite part of the weekend and was really bummed that he just blew it off.

    I really don't think of Lanny's writings as a self help type of program, he goes far beyond that.

    His insight into training and competition thought processes are not merely mental exercises aimed at positive thinking.

    He offers a concise and easily implemented systematic approach to not only dealing with the stress of shooting for a world championship but the structure to train mind and body to the level of repetition that can produce winning form.

    All I now I toe up with some of the best shooters in the world most cases every other weekend and with out a mental game I could not compete ...I have shot in front of 6000 people all screaming for me ( My knees were just fine until I looked up and saw me smiling on a jumbo tron)

    And I shoot in my back yard and I do my best to recreate the pressure ( I need to run for the job I will get back to this in a few hrs)
