Split your brain in half!

Lateralization. Right is left and left is right.

Imagine you have only half of your brain. Is it a lot or a little? What are you able to do? Quite a lot! Brain is an amazing organ, it’s abilities keep surprising us. One thing is especially interesting – lateralization. It means, that left hemisphere controls the right side of body, and right hemisphere – left one. What do you think, which of your hemispheres is stronger?

Why do I need strong hemispheres?

Strong hemispheres is nothing else but fast and coordinated working. Each life domain which requires movement and processing information needs an effective action of both hemispheres. Thanks to this you will be able to see the most important information at work, school or on the pitch is the speed of light and correctly react for them.

How to train hemispheres?

Psychomotor training is an innovative method of brain exercise. It bases on approach which combines what happens in your head with movement and physical activity. Thanks to psychomotorics we are able to diagnose which hemisphere is a dominant one and which requires an additional training. It’s a huge step forward in developing potential of human brain!

Psychomotorics – new dimension of training.

Psychomotor training is a perfect solution for people willing to perform more effectively at work, school or in sport. Get with the times – train your brain and body. Give yourself chance to be the best!

Recipe for a professional athlete!

Psychomotorics – new dimension of training

Do we have a ready-made recipe for a professional athlete? Many think that constant motivating and spending tones of money will make a champion out of their child. Nothing could be more wrong. Modern times provide us efficient methods of developing young athletes. One of them is psychomotor training. Find out how to help your child achieve a higher level!

Put on comprehensive development!

Psychomotorics bases on care about comprehensive development of children. Thanks to it a young athlete develops a base of skills, which give advantage in all fields of sport. Child will learn effective concentration and good decision making. They will allow to achieve faster and better effects in technical and tactical training.  Comprehensive development is a key to become professional.

Individualisation in smart version

Psychomotor training is also an entire individualisation of exercises. Activities have to be matched to needs and potential of child. Thanks to professional diagnosis we receive an information in which field it’s recommended to increase exercise intensification. In other words, psychomotor training leads to maximize development of child’s in-born skills.

Training for our time

Psychomotor training is an answer for requirements of present times. In the era of ubiquitous electronics encouraging children to any activities is difficult. Thanks to using new technology, psychomotor training is an attractive and engaging activity. It’s a combination of business and pleasure.

Find your child’s talent!

Is your child talented…?

Fact if your child is talented is usually defined at early stage of it’s life. It is especially important because talent should be developed from young age so it could benefit in future. A big role in talent identification plays school. Does your child paint beautifully? Maybe recites poems or brilliantly sings? If not, is it just an ordinary child?

Psychomotorics – new dimension in talent identification

Psychomotor training is the newest trend in effective support of children development. Despite fact, that we live in times of constant technological progress and we know human brain better and better, schools keep working in out-of-date system. Teachers do not have professional knowledge and access to modern equipment, so they could identify talent. Do not let missing your child’s talent by someone’s incompetence!

Who trains brain?

Psychomotor training affects development of brain. Making this type of exercises is very important among children, because their brain is on stage of constant shaping and may be easily modificated. Professional  diagnosis and well planned training are able to develop those skills, which are very important in professions like manager, lawyer, pilot or doctor.

Psychomotorics – how to find “hidden talent”?

Psychomotor training is a wide influence on child’s in-born skills. Thanks to diagnosis we are able to discover those parts of mind, in which there is the biggest potential and develop it by adequate training. Perhaps your child has talent to great concentration, it can react very fast or perfectly process information? It’s potential may be hidden somewhere, where other people wouldn’t event think to search.

…Every child is talented!

Psychomotorics is a modern approach to talent issue. Children are not treated in black and white way. Every person is different and has different in-born skills. Thanks to new technology we are able to discover hidden talents. Give your child chance to be the best!

Memory training

Memory training consists on remembering few elements presented on semaphores, making a particular calculation and choosing the correct answer by covering semaphore. For example, there are presented numbers on three semaphores. Athlete has to remember them and add up during the exercise. At the end of exercise he chooses one of three semaphores which shows a correct answer.

It is recommended to implement, between covering semaphores, sport specific tasks like passing or throwing the ball. It will make the exercise more difficult but also more effective.

Memory exercises are used in short-term and working memory training. What is more, athlete learns   good decision making with time pressure, basing on previously seen information.

While creating a Memory exercise we can change it’s difficulty level using following modifications:

  • Disturbing sounds – using additional sounds will influence difficulty of remembering presented symbols,
  • Calculation change – we can implement various calculations like adding up,
  • Symbols – instead numbers, we can use other abstract symbols which make task more difficult,
  • Colours – by using different colours we can indicate which numbers are positive (green) and which negative (red).

 


Memory exercises:

Easy – Nr: 85, 105, 106

Medium – Nr:  98, 107, 108

Difficult – Nr:  109, 110, 111

Testing in sports

Modern testing

Testing is a fundamental thing in sports. Every match, tournament or training are different ways of testing athlete’s skills. We live in times where almost all the things are measurable and changing behaviors into numbers should be an integral method of objective and professional diagnosis.

Why we should test more often

Creating a big data base brings us closer to knowledge about a real score of an athlete. A single measure may show us wrong result and we want to know true abilities which are repeatable.

What’s important in sport testing

We often see situation when a favorite loses at the biggest tournament. It seems that athlete is perfectly prepared but his scores are way below expectations. It’s called choking. The pressure and importance of tournament are to big and in consequence athlete is not able to give his best. One of ways to deal with it is testing at the early stage of career. Player has to be prepared to perform at highest possible level. It is also a good way to mobilize athletes. If you’re moving to professional sport, training should be hard and taken seriously. Testing will help to achieve good mental attitude of players.

How to test athletes?

We already know that we should do it often. But often doesn’t mean anyhow. We should try to change conditions, put in testing sessions things that may happen in real competition. That’s a real problem for athletes to get used to small changes between tournaments like temperature, light or wind.

We can’t forget about pressure. Let’s set some additional rivalization between players, check their attitude in various sessions. At this point lets regard age of athletes. Don’t forget that working with children requires different methods.

Testing advantages

Proper and regular testing will be rewarding for both coaches and athletes. We will get data to compare our players and monitor their progress. We will be able to observe them in different situations and see how they react. When it comes to athletes one of the most important things is getting used to pressure and competition. Also developing a right attitude towards training will benefit in future career.

Return training

Return training is based on covering semaphores in two positions. In the simplest version of exercise, athlete stands opposite a single semaphore, remembers presented symbol and covers the semaphore, then he turns around and searches for remembered symbol among other semaphores.

The aim of return exercises is practicing wide and narrow attention.  At the beginning,  athlete focuses on one particular element (narrow attention) and then makes overview of the field (wide attention). It is a perfect exercise for team sport athletes, where effective switching between different types of attention is a vital element of competition.

According to our training goals, we can change return exercises, so they would adjust athlete’s skills or different sport competitions.

Elements which may be manipulated:

  • Number of semaphores in the sequence – by adding semaphores in first sequence, we enhance difficulty of exercise. Athlete must remember more symbols and their order and in the same time perform a motor task (covering semaphores). In this exercise we train not only attention but also short-time memory,
  • Semaphores setting – semaphores may be arbitrarily set in space, so we could grade difficulty of wide attention exercise,
  • Distracting sounds – attention of athlete may be easily disturbed. Use diffusing sounds to become insensitive for distractors.
  • Daltonic background – using daltonic background makes finding a good symbol much more difficult and encourages athlete to focus more on the exercise.
  • Exposition time – we can manipulate with exposition time of symbols on semaphores. Thanks to it athlete will be forced to make decision with time pressure. He can also perform freely without bothering about time.

By using mentioned methods, we can implement various exercises, which help athletes to constantly develop their skills.

 

Return exercises :

Instructional – Nr: 62, 102, 103,

Easy – Nr: 64, 26, 34,

Medium – Nr: 101,  65, 27

Difficult – Nr: 73, 74, 104

Flywheel training

What is flywheel training

Flywheel training is an innovation that makes traditional training with weights less useful. It is based on applying the inertia of a flywheel instead of simple gravity to create optimal resistance and give you the opportunity to perform an eccentric training. In addition you can do many exercises using only one device and increase your strength in a fast, modern and most effective way.

Eccentric training and overload

The eccentric training method is based on slowing the lowering phase of an exercise. To reach your maximal force in the eccentric phase, you need to get eccentric overload which is much easier and safer in case of flywheel training.

Is the flywheel training for me?

No matter what your goal is, the answer is YES. Flywheel training is for all sport disciplines, rehabilitations and fitness, and can be used on every level of advancement. You can easily adjust the overload to your physical ability due to varying sizes of the flywheel.

What are the main advantages of flywheel training?

-improvement of general health
-faster muscles growth
-low risk of injury
-comparatively lower training costs

Scientifist Evidence

Effectiveness of flywheel training is confirmed by scientific researches.  Actually all studies comparing flywheel training vs weights training shows flywheel to be superior for increasing muscle power, strength, hypertrophy and athletic performance. You can read numerous articles in this field, here are some more important ones:

Effects of eccentric-overload training program on muscle-injury prevention and performance in junior elite soccer players.

Tennis- wide& narrow attention excercise

Function

This exercise will develop wide and narrow attention, which is ability to instantly switch between observing one important element and few elements on wide field.

 

Setting

After activating „Attention” training, there will be presented „X” symbol on one of the semaphores. Put this semaphore in the middle of center service line. Cover „X” semaphore. In next step there will appear symbols on five other semaphores. Among them, one symbol will be presented twice. Cover one of those two semaphores. The one which doesn’t react for movement – put in the middle of the net. Other semaphores (4) should be put in outside corners of service boxes.

Realization:

  1. Athlete starts exercise behind the service line, runs and covers semaphore „X”.
  2. Semaphore on the net shows symbol, which should be found by athlete on other semaphores in corners.
  3. Athlete covers found semaphore.
  4. Athlete returns and covers semaphore „X” on the center service line.
  5. Next steps of exercise should be performed similarly

Remember

Tennis is a game where concentration of athlete may be easily disturbed. Turning on disturbing sounds in application will allow to train more effecitvely.

This exercise is an inspiration from our specialists. Platform TestYou Cloud allows to create new trainings which are limited only by Your imagination. Invent Your own exercise and enjoy training of the future.
