This publication stems from a collaboration between Mirko Wegner (Humboldt University of Berlin), the two graduate students Ramon Grätzer and Joël Egli from the University of Bern and Julia Schüler, who holds the chair of sport psychology at the University of Konstanz. In two experiments with volleyball and badminton players, we showed that athletic performance benefits from a fit between an athletes’ chronic regulatory focus (prevention vs. promotion focus) and instructions as provided by the situational framings of sports.
