ABSTRACT Improving motor skills represents one of the major issues in motor control and motor learning literature. The aim of this study was to investigate which of two strategies, method of amplification of error (MAE) or direct instruction (DI), would be more beneficial for error correction of the snatch technique. Thirty well-trained male weightlifters were randomly assigned to one of three training conditions (MAE, DI and Control). The experiment took place in only one practice session in… 

The video feedback viewing in novice weightlifters: Total control strategy improves snatch technique during learning

This study aimed at comparing the efficiency of two viewing control strategies, total control versus partial control, in correcting the snatch technique in school-aged boys (10–12 years old).

Distance Motor Learning during the COVID-19 Induced Confinement: Video Feedback with a Pedagogical Activity Improves the Snatch Technique in Young Athletes

Combining video feedback with pedagogical activity during the pandemic induced online coaching or physical education to improve movement learning in school aged children is suggested.

The Effects of Three Correction Strategies of Errors on the Snatch Technique in 10-12-Year-Old Children: A Randomized Controlled Trial.

After the training intervention, the data showed that the SO-DI group registered a greater improvement in all kinematic parameters compared with the SO, DI, and control groups, and this benefit was present 2 weeks later in the retention test.

Information Processing and Technical Knowledge Contribute to Self-Controlled Video Feedback for Children Learning the Snatch Movement in Weightlifting

Key elements to correcting motor errors in children’s weightlifting through self-controlled feedback were improvements in information processing and technical knowledge.

A Systematic Review of Attentional Focus Strategies in Weightlifting

The effects of attentional focus strategies during weightlifting tasks was investigated through a systematic review and an external focus of attention promotes automatic control of actions, thus preventing the motor system being constrained by conscious cognitive control.

Peer-to-peer online video feedback with pedagogical activity improves the snatch learning during the COVID-19-induced confinement in young weightlifting athletes

The lack of training caused by the COVID-19 pandemic could have significant consequences on the performance and health of athletes. The aim of the present study was to test the effects of two

Effects of plyometric and pull training on performance and selected strength characteristics of junior male weightlifter

Purpose: The aim of this study was to investigate the effect of plyometric and pull training added an Olympic weightlifting training program (twice a week for 8 wk) on performance and selected

Kinematic Analysis of the Snatch Technique in High Performance Weightlifters

The overall objective of this work is to compare the differences between the execution of snatches performed by high-performance male and female weightlifters as well as the lateral symmetry of the

Application of Virtual Reality Based on Computer Vision in Sports Posture Correction

In recent years, with the rise of virtual and sports, people are often injured due to irregular movements during exercise. Based on this, this article takes the basic concept of computer virtual



Correction of a Technical Error in the Golf Swing: Error Amplification Versus Direct Instruction

Results showed that MAE is an effective strategy for correcting the technical errors leading to a rapid improvement in performance, which could have practical implications for sport psychology and physical education.

"Amplification of error": a rapidly effective method for motor performance improvement

The aim of the current work was to test the effects of an innovative teaching method in improving motor skills. We evaluated the effectiveness of an error-based instruction method (Method of

Three Types of Kinematic Feedback and the Execution of the Hang Power Clean

The results have implications for instructors seeking efficient methods of improving the way in which to teach female athletes to perform complex, dynamic, and technical movements through altering the type of feedback given.

Instructions for motor learning: differential effects of internal versus external focus of attention.

The effects of different types of instructions on complex motor skill learning were examined. The instructions were related either to the participant's own body movements (internal focus) or to the

Changes in Bar Path Kinematics and Kinetics Through Use of Summary Feedback in Power Snatch Training

Results indicate that both kinematic and kinetic variables improve through training and AF, and practitioners wishing to improve weightlifting performance should attempt to use evidence-based AF.

An External Focus of Attention Enhances Golf Shot Accuracy in Beginners and Experts

Benefits of adopting an external focus of attention have been found for daily life activities in persons who had a cerebrovascular accident, and balance in individuals with Parkinson’s disease.

Effects of attentional-focus instructions on movement kinematics


The results of this study suggest that women demonstrate performance characteristics that differ subtly from those reported in men weightlifters.
