A pre-performance routine to alleviate choking in choking-susceptible athletes

A pre-performance routine to alleviate choking in choking-susceptible athletes

Sport Psychologist: 4, 439-457

"Choking under pressure" is a maladaptive response to performance pressure whereby choking models have been identified, yet, theory-matched interventions have not empirically tested. Thus, the purpose of this study was to investigate whether a preperformance routine (PPR) could reduce choking effects, based on the distraction model of choking.
