Elements involved in a task establishing unique motor patterns to coincide with skills sets in a unique task:
1. Posture and body position - leaning to the side, direction, location of limbs)
2. Speed of contraction (temporal patterns and rhtym of movement)
3. Nature of contraction (the quality of movement, including any vibration on the body via the environment, has a bearing on skill acquisition, as well as the attributes within concentric, eccentric, and static phases)
4. Force of contraction (strength curve, the measure of force at any point within the range of movement, and within each muscle or from muscle to muscle as movement continues; all have a an issue on skill acquisition)
5. Joint angles (locations of joint angles providing different proprioceptive feedback to the CNS and motor learning, altering force of contraction characteristics as well as it relates balance, agility, reaction, etc)
6. Range of movement (skills are specific to the range of movement and adaptation is dependent on the specifics of the movement ROM)
7. Neuromuscular patterning - the ORDER of muscle contraction, the timing and sequence of contractions.
8. Motor response classification (discrete, continuous, and serial)
9. Energy stystems - the duration and extent of the respective contractions within each muscle group and as a muscle proceeds throughout a range of motion, the difficult and energy requirements along every inch of the ROM.
10. Mental perception and cognition of the tasks and cognitivie processing of stimuli (emotions, feelings, focus, anxiety, arousal, clarity of thinking, diversification of stimuli, ability to concentrate and make decisions)
Re; #10 - Attentional Focus, External Focus, Internal Focus, Narrow Focus, Broad Focus
11. The quality, quantity and nature of the stimuli (extrinsic factors affecting performance and decision making including opponents from another team, wind, noise, visual distractions, how the environment changes from moment to moment determines which action and set of skills are most appropriate via decision making).
12. Situation Context (specificity of a task versus non-specificity of a task).
