FIGHT, FLIGHT OR FRIGHT

This section will focus on the arousal that athletes often experience in the heat of battle and how it can change them or their performances.

At peak moments of stress, athletes may go into a fight or flight mode. Post 1 discusses the physiological and psychological states of fight or flight and lesser mind-body alarms. It shows that many athletes attain record-breaking efforts when they are defending their pride or reputation, leading to a kind of controlling anger (and sometimes fear) in which their heightened hormones act as powerful additives. But, as shown in post 2, over-or underarousal can lead to subpar performances, so the optimal or desired levels of arousal for various types of sports and individuals are examined.

Some of the most startling athletic performances are accomplished by athletes tapping into a reservoir of dormant hormones which they activate through controlled anger against their opponents or doubters. Arguably, the strongest animal instinct (in humans or otherwise) is self-preservation. When faced with a perceived threat, our autonomic system immediately kicks into a composite psychological and physiological reaction called fight or flight. This instinct is built-in protection for the species, and for champion athletes, and it can also boost performance.
