Abstract

Motor competence (MC) is the contextualised manifestation of fundamental motor skills (FMS). A good MC helps young people have a greater repertoire of motor options in which they feel competent to decide on their lifestyle. On the other hand, motor incompetence can lead to inhibition or progressive inactivity, which in turn generates more incompetence and fewer adherences to physical activity (PA) in childhood and adulthood. A recent meta-analysis indicated that the inclusion of PA programs oriented to participate in rich experiences in FMS, developed by specialists in physical education, increase the development of MC in young people. In turn, the evidence shows that the integrated neuromuscular training improves health and performance of FMS. In this context, the present work analyses three approaches: (a) to define the relationship between MC and healthy PA, (b) to justify the need to establish a diagnosis for exercise deficit Disorder, and (c) to propose integrated neuromuscular training (INT) as a methodology to improve physical fitness and MC in children and adolescents.
