The use of augmented visual feedback on the learning of the recovering phase of pedaling
The objective of this study was to investigate if the use of augmented visual feedback would improve the learning of the pedaling technique in the recovery phase. Nineteen people from 14 to 16 years old with no experience in cycling divided in experimental (n=10) and control (n=9) groups took part in this study. Initially, two evaluations were performed to determine the maximal oxygen uptake and work load. Right after the second evaluation seven pedaling practice sections were performed and after the last one a post test was conducted. After a week a retention test was performed. The results showed that both groups increased their performance, but the experimental group showed better results in the retention test. It was concluded that the augmented visual feedback could be considered a more appropriate tool for teaching of cycling.
