Sports training work-related rumination refers to thinking about events related to sports training even after training, which can have both negative and positive effects on sports training. The strong level of competitive motivation affects to some extent the effectiveness of individual athletes' daily sports training and sports participation performance. It is a key motivational indicator that influences sports athletes' competitive achievements. In this study, 235 (257 in total, 235 valid) active athletes of Jiangxi provincial sports teams were used as subjects by using literature, psychometric, mathematical and statistical methods, and logical analysis. Little research has been conducted on athletes' work-related rumination. There is a lack of research on how it relates to competitive motivation. The purpose of this study is to reveal the intrinsic relationship between work-related rumination and competitive motivation in sports training.
