She Had A Bad Case Of Lost Move Syndrome. She Was About To Give Up The Sport. Now Bryony Page Is An Olympic Silver Medallist. What Could You Achieve With Renewed Confidence!

Bryony Page Gymnastics PsychologyGymnastics and trampolining, are sports where confidence is absolutely critical. You are being asked to execute extremely complex and difficult routines at high speed.

If you have a shred of doubt or uncertainty about what you are going to do, and how you are going to do it, then this can compromise your commitment to the routine. And, of course, negatively influence the outcome.

Doubts caused by:

  • Tiredness (maybe you have gone straight to the gym from school)
  • Poor Concentration (perhaps you are performing in a new venue)
  • Lack Of Focus (you have not thought through your routine)
  • These doubts can lead to falls. And falls can lead to lack of trust, which in turn creates a lack of confidence and belief. Moves which you could do before in your sleep, become impossible!

And in extreme cases, lead to Lost Move Syndrome. That is when the performer cannot recall a move, they may have been performing with ease, only a short period before.

Lost Move Syndrome can be so frustrating for a performer, that without expert help, they can be forced to give up their sport.

The mind-body relationship, is so critical in these gymnastic disciplines, that any breakdown in confidence can cause you to lose trust, so vital to success.

Why Is Gymnastic Confidence Lost?

So here are some of the top reasons which cause lost confidence;

  • When a coach constantly focuses on what a gymnast has done wrong rather than on the things they do right
  • When a gymnast loses their moves (Lost Move Syndrome)
  • When performer develops fear of the judges
  • When the national squad drops a performer and fails to offer an explanation
  • When a performer is constantly criticised – by team-mates and management
  • When a gymnast starts comparing themselves unfavourably to others
  • When a performer loses form and doesn’t know why
  • When a trampolinist starts beating themselves up, for underperforming
  • When a performer loses confidence and lack the mental strength to turn things around

Once confidence has gone, doubt and uncertainty take over. The insecure performer enters a phase of negative behaviour which becomes increasingly difficult to break.

Fear of defeat leads to indecision, which leads to further self-doubt, which leads to failure. A cycle of failure is established.
