On motor tasks like the overarm throw, velocity and accuracy are two important parameters of performance that may be incompatible and require different strategies in the execution of the motor task. The purpose was to investigate the effects of instruction (emphasizing velocity, accuracy, or both) on performance and kinematics of overarm throwing. Results for 9 experienced male team handball players (M age = 24 +/- 2.2 yr.) showed type of instruction affected the maximal ball velocity. The… CONTINUE READING
