Mindclickers is an insight into the psychological and performance demands of Professional Esports Personalities.
Imagine if you could hear what a Physiotherapist recommends for best practice about ergonomics or stretches. Thinking of adding exercises into your routine? I wonder what an elite-level Strength & Conditioning Coach would recommend. How about figuring out Nutrition? We've got Registered Dietitians and Performance Nutritionists to cover that too!
But it doesn't stop there.. Ever wondered what top-level professional players think about before, during, or after a game? How they relax, deal with anxiety, adopt the flow state, communicate effectively and perform? We provide exclusive insights into the mind of top-level players so that you can add to your game!
Not only that, but have you been interested in starting your own path in Esports, but not sure where to look? We have episodes with Esports organisation owners, who share their stories about their path, and how they found success in an ever-developing scene.
Here are some great episodes to start with.
