As athletes, getting good quality feedback is extremely important. We want to know if and how much we’re improving over time and how we’re doing compared to the competition.
Feedback is 🔑
Athletes can now, easier than ever, get real-time feedback both when the coach is and is not present, and use it as a tool to spark their intrinsic motivation.
In this study, 34 athletes over 6 weeks participated in drop jump training 3x per week and were separated in 3 groups:
1️⃣ First group received no feedback at all on how high they jumped. Their jump height increased by 6%
2️⃣ Second group received feedback on half their reps. Their jump height increased by 10%
3️⃣ Third group received feedback on EVERY rep. Their drop jump performance increased more than twice compared to group 1, to 14% ‼️
Do you currently utilize real-time feedback in your training? If you do, how has it affected your performance? Let us know in the comments👇 #trainsmarter
