  • CT Todd Hargrove's Playing with Movement

    Todd Hargrove's latest book, Playing with Movement, came up in a Tweet recently, and I couldn't wait to share my take on just how much I enjoyed reading it. I never expected that someone on my Twitter account (predominantly cross country, track & field coaches, and Strength & Conditioning folks) would bring it up. The "web" really is a good description, because it's amazing how, like a bug in a spider web, one small movement vibrates the entire web.

    Affordances for Movement

    https://www.bettermovement.org/blog/...s-for-movement

    The ecological psychologist James Gibson coined the term “affordance” to describe features of the environment that create possibilities for useful actions. Classic examples are the handle on a tea cup, or the railing on a stairway. Each affords an easier way to perform a task. When we see a couch, we perceive a good place for sitting, and are therefore “invited” to sit down. When kids see trees with low branches, they see the opportunity for climbing. Escalators afford the chance to ascend stairs without effort. Hiking trails invite exploration of physical space, while iPads do the same for virtual space. Thus, the presence of affordances will continually shape your movement behavior.
