Are you a golfer who struggles with consistency or getting/staying "in the zone"?  Steven Yellin has spent 30 years creating a systematic process to help all athletes achieve the flow state we desire.  Take a listen and maybe you can pick up some things that will help you get there quicker and stay there longer!

Consistency through brain science

EPISODE FEATURED GUEST: STEVEN YELLIN


Steven teaches at the David Leadbetter Academy at ChampionsGate in Orlando Florida and has a book called The Fluid Motion Factor. It really dives into the brain science and the motion behind that. It’s almost like the building blocks to the “in-the-zone performance.” Steven has dealt with 13 different sports including seven different professional teams.


IN THIS PODCAST EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:


  • Something happens in the mind that let’s the muscles be free and move the way how they know how to move.

  • What triggers this “experience” is that the mind starts to become very quiet.

  • Because every shot counts in golf, it creates a lot more drama and gets the hard-drive spinning in the brain because you know there’s not a second chance.

  • By asking a player to do something very specific, it instantly accesses this part of the mind that let’s something in the mind be free-this state is called the fluid motion factor.

  • The fluid motion factor is a neurological process in the mind.

  • What is setting one and how to create wholeness right before you pull the trigger.

  • Recognize if you feel the same way or not when you hit the ball without a target versus with a target.

  • Steven’s book recommendation: The 7 Secrets of World Class Athletes.

  • Once you develop muscle memory, it’s there; you don’t have to worry about it. You don’t have to reinvent everything when you play.

  • Just know that you’ve hit enough good shots in your career that the shots are there, you just have to start simplifying.

EPISODE FEATURED GUEST: DR. ROBERT BELL

Dr. Rob Bell was the assistant professor of sports psychology at Ball State. He has caddied on the PGA tour, so he obviously provides some expert insight that we haven’t had yet on the podcast. He is also a mental game coach; a mental toughness guy who works with PGA tours and PGA tour winners. Dr. Rob Bell actually worked with the 2013 USTA National Champion, which is the United States Tennis Association. This tenner player was the first unranked player to actually win a national championship. Dr. Rob has also even worked with the University of Notre Dame. He has three books out on Amazon right now: The Hinge; Mental Toughness; and No Fear. He’s currently working on a book coming out this fall called Don’t Should on your Kid.

IN THIS PODCAST EPISODE YOU WILL LEARN:

  • How and why you should respond and not react in all aspects of life.

  • Dr. Rob’s favorite quotes: Be an athlete-don’t get all caught up

    • Confidence is king, and focus is queen

  • How Dr. Rob puts his clients under pressure at the beginning to see what type of person they are and how they play and what kind of mental toughness they have.

    • Learn what your demon is.

  • One of his favorite drills is to have clients start with making 100 3-footers in a row.

  • The difference between those that are successful and amateurs isn’t that they don’t mess up; it’s that they don’t let it bother them. They believe they’ll get that shot back.

  • It’s not about the setback, it’s about the comeback.

  • Choke in practice so you can familiarize yourself with the feeling so you don’t do it in actual play.

  • Get comfortable with what makes you uncomfortable

  • Dr. Rob’s book recommendation: Putting out of your Mind.

Part 2 with Shawn Stevenson

  • How to prepare nutritionally for a tournament so we have the ability to focus

    • Don’t just be ready, stay ready. If you wait until the last moment to get things right you can’t be ready at any time.

  • During a Physician's study, people were given a task, and then they were sleep deprived for just 24 hours. It took them 14x longer to complete that same task after being sleep deprived. You also just aren’t as smart.

  • Are there different foods to help brain performance? Foods to learn towards?

    • Carbs are energy, but are they efficient? They are very fast processing, so you’ll have to eat more often every day.  Therefore, not the best choice.

      Fat is a much denser source of energy and is more sustainable. (Winner Winner!)

    • All in all, lower your carb intake, increase your dietary fats. You won’t get fat from eating it.

  • The most important thing is to understand that you’re unique. Figure out what your goals are and find the right things that work for you.

  • About ⅓ to ½ of your plate should be non-starchy vegetables.

  • Health book recommendation: The Calorie Myth
