|How it Works|| |
Create a 50m to 150m course for locomotor movement (e.g. running, skating, skiing, swimming, etc.)
Athletes complete a designated time on the course, listening carefully and alternating their locomotor rhythm to match the drum. E.g. match push of wheel (wheelchair, bike), foot lift (running, walking), lateral push (ski, skate), stroke (kayaking, swimming, canoeing, rowing) to rhythm.
Coach changes from fast to slow, regular to irregular, accelerating to decelerating after each 10-20 second interval.
Rhythmic locomotor movement, changing movement patterns, timing, external cuing, reaction time
Use a visual stimulus for the beat if an auditory stimulus is not compatible with the environment.
