Autogenics Training for Enhanced Performance and Recovery

Autogenics is an established and effective self help technique for enhancing performance and recovery in sport. Its applications are far reaching: Autogenics  can be used to:

  • build confidence
  • enhance concentration
  • increase motivation
  • reduce the risk of injury
  • speed recovery
  • maximize the ability perform under pressure

There are many examples of the use of Autogenics in sport. Competitors in the sporting fields of cycling, golf, athletics, tennis, equestrian sports, archery, pistol shooting, weight lifting and team sports, such as baseball, have all used Autogenics to improve their performance and recovery.

Many of the athletes taking part in the London 2012 Olympic Games will have incorporated Autogenics into their training programmes.

Autogenics helps to maximize potential in sport, by clearing emotional blocks and reducing performance anxiety. It can also facilitate a greater motivation to train and help the maintenance of a positive mental attitude and improved concentration, co-ordination and focus. Research has also shown that Autogenics can help prevent injury by reducing tense muscles and help speed recovery time after injury.

Man with weights - Autogenics - Stress Management CentreDeveloped by German Neuro Psychiatrist Dr. J.H. Schultz in the 1920’s and with later developments by Dr. W. Luthe in subsequent decades, Autogenics has become a powerful therapeutic technique with a wide range of applications These include enhancement of performance and recovery in sport.

One of the earliest uses of Autogenics for sport was in its country of origin, Germany. It was observed that athletes who practised Autogenics developed an impressive increase in their athletic ability and skill. This led sports’ trainers to incorporate Autogenics into their training regimes and as a result, German athletes achieved considerable success during the Olympic games of the 1940’s and 1950’s.

For many years, Autogenic Training was almost unknown in the world of sport. Information was largely limited to that available from occasional remarks by trainees who had learned Autogenic Training for some other reasons. However, research undertaken by G. Naruse during the 1960’s at the Kyushu Institute of Technology, led to Autogenics being used as an effective technique in sports psychology.

Sportsman with head in hands - Autogenics - Stress Management CentreNaruse’s initial study of 125 Japanese champions, who had recently returned from the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, showed that nearly all champions had experienced various manifestations of sometimes severely disturbing psycho-reactive stress and stage fright, before and during the competitions.

Naruse’s findings were characteristic not only of Japanese Olympic champions, but of the large majority of professional and amateur sportsmen as well.

In his collaboration with the Training Committee of the Japanese Society for Physical Culture, G. Naruse taught Autogenic Training to 56 Olympic and amateur athletes who were all suffering from stage fright (performance anxiety).

These athletes were from the fields of free pistol shooting, skiing, gymnastics, Judo, volleyball, diving, baseball, running, jumping and weightlifting. As a result of the Autogenic Training, performance anxiety was eliminated in all but a few cases and the athletes were able to perform much more consistently from one athletic competition to the next.

As a result of this, Autogenic Training was applied in all cases as a standard technique … during and after competitions…“ (ref: Luthe 2001 Vol. III: 169,170).

Russian athletes have also been taught Autogenics and benefited from its applications to sport. In the article, Dr Mel Siff Talks of Soviet Autogenic Training in Weightlifting:

“Based upon the data obtained, it can be assumed that the restoration processes in the athletes’ body is strengthened with the use of Autogenic training (AT).

“Sensitivity, activeness and mood significantly improved after workouts when Autogenics was utilized.

“Restoration of heart rate and minimal BP occurs faster after resting with Autogenics. It should also be noted that the training load executed with the use of Autogenic training was 11% larger than the one without it.

“The effectiveness of modified Autogenic training is indicative of the appropriateness of its use in the contemporary training process.”
Dr. Mel Siff

– treating emotional and physiological disorders;
– enhancing performance;

  ………. and much, much more.

Many of the athletes taking part in the London 2012 Olympic Games will have incorporated Autogenics into their training programmes.

Autogenics helps to maximize potential in sport, by clearing emotional blocks and reducing performance anxiety. It can also facilitate a greater motivation to train and help the maintenance of a positive mental attitude and improved concentration, co-ordination and focus. Research has also shown that Autogenics can help prevent injury by reducing tense muscles and help speed recovery time after injury.

Man with weights - Autogenics - Stress Management CentreDeveloped by German Neuro Psychiatrist Dr. J.H. Schultz in the 1920’s and with later developments by Dr. W. Luthe in subsequent decades, Autogenics has become a powerful therapeutic technique with a wide range of applications These include enhancement of performance and recovery in sport.

One of the earliest uses of Autogenics for sport was in its country of origin, Germany. It was observed that athletes who practised Autogenics developed an impressive increase in their athletic ability and skill. This led sports’ trainers to incorporate Autogenics into their training regimes and as a result, German athletes achieved considerable success during the Olympic games of the 1940’s and 1950’s.

For many years, Autogenic Training was almost unknown in the world of sport. Information was largely limited to that available from occasional remarks by trainees who had learned Autogenic Training for some other reasons. However, research undertaken by G. Naruse during the 1960’s at the Kyushu Institute of Technology, led to Autogenics being used as an effective technique in sports psychology.

Sportsman with head in hands - Autogenics - Stress Management CentreNaruse’s initial study of 125 Japanese champions, who had recently returned from the 1960 Olympic Games in Rome, showed that nearly all champions had experienced various manifestations of sometimes severely disturbing psycho-reactive stress and stage fright, before and during the competitions.

Naruse’s findings were characteristic not only of Japanese Olympic champions, but of the large majority of professional and amateur sportsmen as well.

In his collaboration with the Training Committee of the Japanese Society for Physical Culture, G. Naruse taught Autogenic Training to 56 Olympic and amateur athletes who were all suffering from stage fright (performance anxiety).

These athletes were from the fields of free pistol shooting, skiing, gymnastics, Judo, volleyball, diving, baseball, running, jumping and weightlifting. As a result of the Autogenic Training, performance anxiety was eliminated in all but a few cases and the athletes were able to perform much more consistently from one athletic competition to the next.

As a result of this, Autogenic Training was applied in all cases as a standard technique … during and after competitions…“ (ref: Luthe 2001 Vol. III: 169,170).

Russian athletes have also been taught Autogenics and benefited from its applications to sport. In the article, Dr Mel Siff Talks of Soviet Autogenic Training in Weightlifting:

“Based upon the data obtained, it can be assumed that the restoration processes in the athletes’ body is strengthened with the use of Autogenic training (AT).

“Sensitivity, activeness and mood significantly improved after workouts when Autogenics was utilized.

“Restoration of heart rate and minimal BP occurs faster after resting with Autogenics. It should also be noted that the training load executed with the use of Autogenic training was 11% larger than the one without it.

“The effectiveness of modified Autogenic training is indicative of the appropriateness of its use in the contemporary training process.”
