Members of the athletic coaching profession have long been concerned with obtaining the maximum physical and mental performance from their athletes. This concern has been evidenced through the many studies that have been completed involving methods of enhancing motor performance. Research finding from these studies have influenced changes in training programs and ways of preparing for athletic competition, but these changes have been concerned with primarily with physical development. Although being ready physically is very important for maximum performance, it is not the only factor to be considered. Mental conditioning also plays an important role in the success of any athletic event. The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of training sessions involving self-hypnosis on the anxiety levels of varsity wrestlers, as measured by pulse rates recorded at selected intervals prior to competition.
