We're taking a few listener questions this week about how I'd coach somebody through performance anxieties that are getting in the way of competing, training, and enjoying the process. We talk about how to make practice more like game day, why Rich Froning loves EMOMs, and what I'd do with an athlete who gets nervous when the weight gets too high.
