Since the start of the World Cup in earnest, I haven't had much game time during the opening week. So whilst at home the other day on my day-off I decided to do a little top-up session.

Sport Psychology helps us practice on the relevant aspects of our performance and to reinforce our competence in these areas. Confidence is learned and trained, like a skill, and it has massive implications on success.

We've all heard horror stories of newbie bosses asking some of the most ridiculous questions and expecting sensible answers. So James has followed suit by coming up with and researching some of the most difficult interview questions possible. Obviously all done with humour in mind.

James Haskell

The really terrifying statistic for any professional athlete, member of the armed services, police or indeed anyone liable to be tested is that about 10% of all supplements sold on the market; the percentage is even higher in the USA, are inadvertently contaminated through poor manufacturing processes and/or materials handling and storage.

What Supplements Am I Taking at the Moment?

Diet and whole food is what will make the difference. You need to train and you need to train hard. However, you need to get your diet right as well. Then over time you will definitely get the results you want. If you don't focus on diet you will just meet frustration and disappointment!
