motor skills, are considered to be the “building blocks” for more advanced, complex movements ( Logan, Ross, Chee, Stodden, & Robinson, 2017 ). These skills also include the involvement of large muscle groups and can be categorized as locomotor and object control/ball skills. Locomotor skills include

of unintentional locomotor movements induced by electrical stimulation of the lumbar enlargement in humans ( Gerasimenko et al., 2010 ; Shapkova & Schömburg, 1999 ) have shown, in particular, that the induced peripheral patterns are highly variable and depend strongly on the loading conditions

classified as either locomotor skills or object control skills. Locomotor skills are actions that move the body through space (e.g., running and jumping), while object control skills require the use of hands and feet to manipulate objects (e.g., throwing and kicking) ( Haywood & Getchell, 2014 ). It is

These sequences would include, irrespective of the actual technical
