-week period. Fundamental Movement Skills Four FMS were assessed consisting of two locomotor skills (run and vertical jump) and two object control skills (catch and overhand throw). Skills were assessed using the guidelines from the Test of Gross Motor Development-2 ( Ulrich, 2000 ) for run, catch, and

focused on the analysis of stride patterns, including their variability. More recent analyses based on nonlinear and complex systems approaches have provided novel insights regarding the structure of fluctuations in these stride patterns. A more thorough understanding of the changes of the locomotor

in physical activity. Developmentally, the model of Stodden et al. ( 2008 ) proposed that fundamental motor skills are at the foundation of the motor competence needed for a lifetime of physical activity. These fundamental motor skills are basic gross motor skills that can be divided into locomotor

there are no child studies that have investigated whether unilateral upper limb training induces similar global training responses. Certain neural pathways such as the central locomotor pattern generator ( 40 , 51 ) may be more prevalent in the legs than the arms, and thus, it is not known if upper limb

life, Scott declared that “faulty mechanics hasten the ageing process” ( Scott, 1970 ). In the evolutionary context, locomotor efficiency is in itself a powerful driver of fitness, as it extends a species’ life span ( Priede, 1977 ). Performance metrics in a variety of movement tasks including walking
