When we talk about sport, we often bring up the term “center of gravity”. Keep your COG low, keep your balance, make it hard for someone to knock you off your base. In Weightlifting, we talk about keeping the center of gravity of the bar close to the body’s center of gravity to keep the bar from swinging out so you can produce more power.
Well, emotionally, one needs to consider center of gravity too! Its all about keeping your emotional COG low so that you are balanced and in control. When training and competing, there will always be emotional ups and downs, but the key is to keep the emotions under control and balanced without letting them get too high and crazy. Takes practice, but well worth the effort!
