You can always use warm up time to work on coordination combined with some additional cognitive tasks.
Including cognitive tasks in the training process is highly valuable for every position in handball (or in any other sport), but especially for handball goalkeepers.
In this video we were working with TestYou brain training system on the speed of information processing and speed of reaction.
In addition to that, we worked on another very important aspect – the ability to ignore the non-important information / stimuli.
With TestYou brain training system, you get to work on a more challenging levels of cognitive training, because you are not reacting only on a given color of the light, but you have to react on a specific symbol (number, letter or a symbol) and also on a specific color.
While all along, colors and symbols are mixed up all the time.
You really need to be able to engage your brain, ignore irrelevant information, decide fast and react with proper reaction on a given color and symbol.
