). Accordingly, we would consider them representative of older adults in the community and those participating in earlier studies. However, locomotor patterns adopted at preferred speeds are unlikely to reflect genuine age-related constraints on walking performance, particularly those thought to restrict push

-conditioned session” would include a strength-oriented warm-up (eg, light plyometric drills, single-leg horizontal hops), locomotor-based strength work (eg, accelerations, changes of direction, sled pulling), and game-play sequences. These sequences would include, irrespective of the actual technical

biomechanical perspective, an exoskeleton that assists at one lower limb joint but not others should alter energetic cost differently depending on the locomotor task. A large majority of the total mechanical work performed by muscles during a step can be calculated as the summation of positive and negative

vs. global coordination,) and what aspects of MC they are measuring (e.g., process vs. product, object control vs. locomotor). Thus, the design and intent of these various assessment protocols make it difficult to track changes in motor competence across time, particularly into adulthood. Similar to

With reference to the physical competence element of physical literacy ( Whitehead, 2010 ), it was observed that all teachers predominantly developed locomotor skills, partly developed manipulative skills, but, however, lacked developing body

attribute measured by the Interception game. The ω -coefficient of the Swiftness game was 0.68 which was closer to the recommended 0.7 ( Nunnally & Bernstein, 1994 ). Thus, it was accepted that Swiftness variables were indeed measuring the ability of participants to combine and perform various locomotor

Development of fundamental motor skills and patterns (FMSP) is crucial to participation in regular, vigorous physical activity. Competence in locomotor as well as object control skills (OCS) promotes involvement in activities of childhood and is requisite to successful participation in sports
