Taking some inspiration from Anthony Joshua over the weekend when I had the opportunity to do a boxing class with @bloklondon in Clapton. Being a complete novice with regard to boxing really highlighted the difference between conscious and subconscious processing in sport.
Having drilled the pad work with set combos this all went out the window when body sparring began as the movement patterns were so new and not ingrained.
In any activity repetition of movement is key for it to be a subconscious pathway to allow you to react quicker than conscious thought allows. This then generally leads to better performance.
This is can also be applied to rehabilitation where our end goal is often to affect subconscious movement pathways, whether that be cutting motions on the football pitch or simply knee stability when walking downstairs.
Whilst our end goal is for the body to be able to effectively perform these tasks subconsciously using conscious cues and repetition of good movement patterns are vital in achieving this.
