Hi it’s Tom Bouboul. Today we will talk about peripheral vision Peripheral vision what is it? we must know that there are two types of vision which are totally different but which are indissociable there is the central vision that concerns what we see that is to say when you look at me there you see me and the peripheral vision that will inform us about the rest of the visual field so what is it?
When you’re looking at me your eyes are focused on the screen so that’s the central vision you focus on the image. Peripheral vision: you will continue to look at me without looking away and you will see things left on the right. You can evaluate different elements of the room that surrounds you. they will be blurry but you can identify them and that is what is called peripheral vision so what is the use of peripheral vision? We will put things in their context. Rugby is a sport of interaction between you and your opponents the environment in which you will evolve is not fluctuating. That is to say that unlike canoeing where you will have rapids you do not know not how will be the environment in which you play, rugby apart from the weather the terrain is always the same, it is always the same size and either it is synthetic or grass. So the medium is predictable and the cascades of decisions who will get you and your team to score will be based on your partners and opponents The question you need to ask is what you are able to focus on the trajectory of a balloon and at the same time take information about your partners with opponents Are you able to process information to offer an answer adapted to different constraints? who will land in front of you? The purpose of developing the Peripheral vision is going to be reducing this time on which you will work to process information because rugby is a sport in which time pressure is paramount. The closer you get of high level and the higher the level of play it increases the more the temporal pressure to make a gesture is strong. That is, if you are able to process information faster you are able to make decisions faster from there you will be better than your opponent The development of peripheral vision it allows you to learn to perceive information in your environment, to process it and to propose an adapted answer. By applying that to rugby, are you going to tell me when can that serve? It’s simple a half scrum that will pick up the balloon is what it is capable of as it goes on fixing point to pick up the balloon to take the information on his opponents his partners cover the r1 of the cover of the r3 and at the same time to process the information: is this that the balance of power was positive negative to adapt his answer. How can we develop peripheral vision? firstly if you are alone at home there is an exercise that is really stupid, it is to put you in juggle that is when you start juggling there you are able to take information on things that will happen while focusing your look on something else here that’s for sure the little exercise you can do alone at home in everyday life what are you going to use it for? it will be useful for you to avoid a bike coming from the side, to Spot favorite snack cakes within a supermarket radius to identify possible hazards. You use peripheral vision every day now we will see on the rugby field how are we able to use it so first video we have a player who starts from behind the other player who starts with his arms here and there are balloons that will come from left to right the goal is that the one who sends the balls they put them not too far, it’s just to react the receptionist and the receiver is alert looking to the left or right to find out where the balloon will revive a little exercise that is pretty cool it is an exercise in which there is going to be a player who is going to be in the middle of a square and who will move and the goal of this player is to receive the ball and give the ball to the sender while staying on the line of the two players who will move to the side of the square He will have to deal with information with its peripheral vision opposite and side while having his central vision that will be focused on the arrival of the ball by preparing his hands and sending the ball this is the end of this video on peripheral vision and the usefulness that it can have if you research on the internet you will see that the professional clubs they use more and more then it is not on small exercises juggling or with a balloon, it’s going to be on bright spots where the players have to go to hit light spots as soon as they light up it is notably Toulouse who used it here I hope that the video has pleased you Do not hesitate to subscribe and put a Like and as usual to share and see you next week for another video go ciao
