Further steps include a clear and consistent motivation to follow the training plan and program faithfully, creating realistic expectations in terms of the time required to achieve this goal, but also morean extremely important component – adherence to the instructions from the plan and program and the correct and accurate execution of exercises.

Every exercise in the training plan and program is included in it for a reason, and any irregularities in the performance of these exercises will lead to unsatisfactory results, which is a surprisingly common problem with training designed in this way.

Medical-sportsevaluation of the child

Medical-sports evaluation of a child before or immediately after involvement in sports activity is of key importance in his proper psychophysical development. A child who adopts irregular movement patterns from the earliest days will develop much stronger limitations than his peers who perform automated movements in the right way. Equally, it is important to detect as soon as possible the limitations imposed by genetics and physical predispositions, all with the aim of guiding the child into an activity that will bring the greatest benefit to his health.
