The Drew Review: The Manual Vol. 1, Chapter 4, Motor Learning: Breaking Bad…Habits, Jeff Moyer

Drew’s Review:
“Practice does not make perfect, practice makes permanent” –J. Moyer
Continuing my review of The Manual (CVASP, 2016); chapter four, written by Jeff Moyer (Owner/Dynamic Correspondence Sports Training), is as the title suggests about motor learning and how it can be taught to achieve the desired skills needed in sports. Chapter 4 is conveniently split into three sections; 1) Moyer provides a brief history of motor learning and some of its’ tenants, 2) simple steps to take when administering exercises geared toward improving motor learning, and 3) practical lessons from Moyer’s own experience with 2f22007b-8eaf-474f-9f54-d4ac68995208-2teaching/coaching motor learning exercises. There is a ton of information in this chapter which can be hard to digest from reading it just once; this was the hardest chapter for me to read because of this fact. The most important thing I learned was motor learning, and the principles that govern it, although easy to comprehend can be a very daunting task when it comes to coaching these principles. From reading this chapter a strength coach gains insight into the world of sports where every movement can be studied and reviewed in order for their athletes to be at their best.
