Coordination or Motor Coordination is how mostly your bones, muscles, and nerves cooperate to make your whole body or parts of it move or make a particular movement successfully. Those three major “factories” must “unite” in a precise manner. Otherwise, the movements you make will be awkward and not the ones you intend to make.
Everything starts from your Brain & Spinal Cord, where the orders are given and then transferred to the rest of your body. Your bones & muscles obey in a very coordinated way, and thus they move different parts or your whole body.
Most people do not need specific coordination exercises because every basic workout that includes strength, cardio, and stretching training works to some extent on coordination as well. You would be able to do none of your exercises if your bones, muscles, and nerves did not cooperate in their usual perfect manner. However, athletes who want to perfect a movement, and therefore achieve better records, always work on coordination as hard as they do with the other fitness components. By working on coordination, those also in their recovery process after injuries speed up their recovery time and reach faster their previous high technique levels. Yes, you understood correctly… Motor coordination is, in other words, the technique with which you make a specific movement, often at high speed.
If you need to improve your motor coordination, reach out to a knowledgeable professional to make sure you use the right exercises. Coordination needs you to work in a detailed manner, and the precision of each movement plays a considerable role in its improvement.
