Foundations of Sport and Exercise Psychology 6th Edition eBook With Web Study Guide
Although this chapter focuses on the influence of exercise on psychological well-being, many highly competitive athletes confront psychological issues when they transition out of sport. Much has been written and many models have been developed regarding the psychological issues that occur when transitioning out of competitive sport (Alferman & Stambulova, 2007; Lavalle, Park, & Tod, 2013; Stambulova, Alfermann, Statler, & Cote, 2009).
It is not unusual for athletes to exhibit an “abnormal” ECG due to the effect of exercise training on the anatomy and autonomic control of the heart. However, it is important to understand which ECG abnormalities may be physiologic and which are likely to be pathologic.
