When giving athletes extrinsic feedback about their technical skills, you can either tell them what you saw (descriptive feedback) or tell them what you think they need to do based on what you saw (prescriptive feedback).
Perception, Cognition, and Decision Training
Has our human fascination with hitting targets contributed to a larger brain?
Attention and Motor Skill Learning
Even though motor skills vary, the learning process that individuals go through when acquiring those skills is similar.
Vision and Goal-Directed Movement eBook
In the last few decades, a modest number of empirical investigations have been designed to identify factors influencing the use of visual information as a function of practice.
Motor Control and Learning 5th Edition eBook
Here, the author presents some of the evidence about the retention and retention loss of motor skills.
The levator scapulae runs between the upper part of the shoulder blades and the top four cervical vertebrae.
Latinos in U.S Sport
Latinos are often at a disadvantage compared to their white counterparts in U.S. soccer, and have found ways to create their own opportunities.
Physical Activity and Health 2nd Edition eBook
Research has repeatedly shown that exposure to regular, frequent bouts of physical activity stimulates physiological and metabolic changes that benefit health. It is helpful to classify these as either (a) chronic effects, that is, adaptations to training acquired over weeks or months, or (b) short-term, acute responses to each individual session of activity.
Rest, which by nature triathletes are inherently bad at, is an integral part of the healing process. This is when the body heals itself and gets stronger, whether you are taking a day or a few weeks off from working out or reducing the intensity or volume of your workouts.

Advanced Exercise Endocrinology
In the United States and Europe, between 5% and 8% of the adult population is estimated to suffer from T2D, and in genetically prone subpopulations, the prevalence may be as high as approximately 50% (Fr�sig & Richter, 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.
