ABOUT THE PRACTICE RESOURCE
The process of practicing a skill, recording yourself, and assessing the videos creates a powerful feedback loop for improvement. By capitalizing on the benefits of self-observation and analysis, you can identify weaknesses, refine techniques, and progress more effectively toward mastering your mechanics. Whether you’re an athlete or learner of any kind, incorporating video review into your practice routine can significantly enhance your skill development journey.
Our Feedback Exercises videos will challenge you to practice the drill then use your practice recordings by putting them on a computer screen alongside the Demo Instructor’s video to assess your movement
The purpose of this practice resource is to keep repeating this ‘Practice, Record and Assess’ process as many times as you need so that you can pinpoint specific errors or mistakes in your performance.
Viewing Device: smart phone, tablet, or computer
Spacing Tools: Stick that will measure at a length that is half your height
Floor Markers: Tape (or spacing stick)
Practicing a skill, videoing your practice sessions, and then reviewing the footage can be an extremely effective method for improving your abilities in various areas. This approach provides several benefits and insights that contribute to skill enhancement.
Immediate feedback: Recording yourself allows you to see your performance in real-time or shortly after the practice session. This immediate feedback helps identify mistakes, weaknesses, and areas for improvement that might not be apparent during the actual execution.
Self-awareness: Video review fosters self-awareness, enabling you to recognize strengths and weaknesses you might not have been aware of previously. It’s an opportunity to see how you come across to others and identify any habits or tendencies that could be hindering your progress.
Analyzing technique: For movement pattern improvement, video analysis helps assess your technique and form. You can compare your movements to those of experts or instructional resources to see where you might be deviating from the correct approach.
Learning from successes and failures: Analyzing both successful attempts and failures on video can help you understand what works and what doesn’t. You can replicate successful strategies and learn from your mistakes to refine your approach.
Mental rehearsal: Reviewing videos can be a form of mental rehearsal. Watching yourself perform successfully can boost confidence and mentally reinforce the correct techniques, potentially enhancing in-game performance.
