Efficiency is Often Overlooked
Being efficient with your movement patterns in sup and or skiing enables short and long term milestones. Keep in mind that to learn and develop skills, it’s important to work through ones’ mistakes and weaknesses. Lately I’ve been doing a lot of private coaching! Seeing the different levels of efficiencies truly shows me how important this is. The student that is more in tune with their gross and finite motor skills will positively impact their development. These skills have a unique and relevant interplay for sport competency.
The abilities of students to separate the emotional, physical, and cognitive leads to the efficiency paradigm sooner and more easily. When learning new skills, having the wherewithal to feel the time and space relationship is another asset for quicker adaptation and enjoyment.
Ponder these tips:
1. Play with different speed levels; slow - medium - fast. Can you maintain positive mechanics while intensities change?
2. Fluidity and smoothness will go a long way towards efficiency.
3. As stated in previous articles, less is usually more when it comes to mechanics.
