This is a new and growing area of elite sports that could allow athletes at the highest level that edge above the competition. It was especially interesting to me because when I played softball some schools would have us work with this type of MOT training. It was interesting to finally see the study behind these exercises we would do. 11-13-2016 2:14pm

This is a interesting article, all of the different forms of training that athletes endure is very impressive. I thought it was interesting that football players take ballet lessons as a part of balance training. Cognition is a incredibly important part of athletics, yet undervalued. 11-13-2016 6:18pm
