The main purpose of this study is to examine the effectiveness of motivational and instructional selftalk cues with video-imagery intervention on Wingate cycle 30-sec anaerobic performance. The participants were 45 male state soccer players employing either one out of three different combination of delivering methods using self-talks cues and video-modelling imagery provided for 4 weeks. A pre-test, intervention, and post-test study design were employed. Using the mixed-design ANOVA, the

Participants' who employed self-talk intervention were also performed better in anaerobic performance compared to control group (p < .05). However, result between the interventions group were found not significant during post-test. In conclusion, self-talk cues employed with imagery video modelling interventions were found to be beneficial to enhance anaerobic capacity, however there is no different of effects on employing either motivational or instructional self-talk cues. Thus, motivational and instructional self-talk interventions were suggested to be employed with imagery and video modelling.
