Qualities of movement: The most recognized qualities of movement are sustained, percussive, suspended, swinging, and collapsing. Movement qualities are considered a part of the element of force/energy.
What is movement quality in physical education?
Movement quality is the optimal combination of mobility, stability, and control of movement. Mobility is the joint’s range of motion, which includes soft tissue and joint movement (as opposed to flexibility which only includes soft tissue movement). In the fitness industry, personal trainers, sports coaches, athletic trainers, and physiotherapists all agree that movement control is one of the most crucial aspects of exercise.
The real question is, “What factors prevent one from attaining higher movement quality levels?” We compiled 5,200 TE3 Mobility analyses and determined the two primary causes: Immobility: restrictions in movement execution The hamstrings are too tight to permit lifting from the ground (left 70 ° and right 73 °).
Half differences: imbalances between the left and right sides of the body that impede unilateral movement execution. The overhead squat movement is executed asymmetrically. Reason for a significant difference in internal hip rotation (left 36 degrees, right 27 degrees) When planning a training session, coaches and trainers must be aware of any client limitations and how to appropriately address them.
Movements that do not correspond to a client’s capabilities do not produce optimal results and, in the worst case scenario, can result in injury. In the images below, the client has completed the TE3 Movement Quality program, which included the TE3 Mobility analysis and the corresponding training program.
The photographs below were taken prior to and following a thirty-day training period. In advance of Ankle Flexion (L 19° / R 14°) Rotation of the trunk (L 52° / R 40°) After Ankle Flexion (L 21° / R 19 °) Rotation of the trunk (L 52° / R 50°) The easiest way to determine the level of movement quality is to perform a TE3 Mobility Analysis, which consists of 14 movements and takes 15 minutes.
Movement quality: The distinguishing characteristics created by the release, continuation, and termination of energy, which are essential to the transformation of movement into dance; typical terms denoting qualities include sustained, swing, percussive, collapse, and vibratory and effort combinations like float, dab, punch, and glide.
