Repetition is THE key to developing automatic movements

Dr Fraser Harban •Repetition is THE key to developing automatic movements. This exactly how the brain develops complex motor plans and programmes within the basal ganglia and supplementary motor areas of the brain.
Once these complex plans have been written they can be executed without conscious involvement and are therefore ‘spinal’ in nature and rapid. The only way to write these plans is by drilling the components in training environment.
Disease in the brain has shown us how the brain learns activities and this is eminently relevant in sports training. We can train aspects of the game and yes, whilst sport is random in nature, rehearsed drills can be used either in components or whole to achieve rapid, automated actions.
