Muscular endurance: Throughout a 90 minute match he will use his muscles, especially in his legs, a lot .Therefore he needs the ability for these muscles to continue working without getin tired or cramping up during this time .
Co ordination : In football being in control of your body is important so that you can co ordinate your feet and kick the ball in the right way . Peter Crouch especially needs good co coordination because he is so tall and has longer limbs to be in control of . Balance : The taller person is the harder it is to balnce because they have a higher centre of gravity.Peter Crouch must be able to stay on his feet during a game of football

Physical Characteristics Somatotype Peter Crouch is an ectomorph therefore he is very slim and tall. Peter has little body muscle or fat due to his unique body type. This somatotype is not very common in football because of the lack of strength and co-ordination usually associated with ectomorphs however in Peter Crouch’s case he does not show signs of lack of strength and he can co-ordinate his body very well. In fact his somatotype is an advantage to his game meaning he is a target man and and can win the ball in the air. Also he is in control of his large limbs.
How feedback has influenced Peter Crouch
Peter Crouch is now 25 and has been playing football all his life, for 7 different professional clubs gaining a lot of feedback from different sources. There are 4 types of feedback which he will have used to improve his game: • Intrinsic feedback • Extrinsic Feedback • Knowledge of Performance • Knowledge of Results
Intrinsic Feedback Intrinsic Feedback is feedback from within. It is a performers own perception of his or her own performance. To use intrinsic feedback effectively an athlete must have a lot of experience. An example of intrinsic feedback for Peter Crouch would be when he has just made a pass in a football game he will know if it was a good pass by the way it felt when it left his foot and if it reached its intended target. If the pass was good or bad Peter will feed this information back to himself and either attempt to recreate the technique next time, if it worked well, or change it, if it was wrong.
Extrinsic Feedback • Extrinsic Feedback is feedback from an external source. In Peters Career he will have received a lot of extrinsic feedback, both positive and negative from a number of sources such as: • Coaches • Family • Crowd • TV & Video Analysis • Other, more experienced professionals
An example of extrinsic feedback Peter Crouch has received throughout his career is the feedback form coaches. Because he has played at many different clubs he has worked with many different coaches and had feedback from all of these. This feedback can be both positive and negative, however always constructive. It is more useful than intrinsic feedback because it is easier for someone else watching to see what a performer is doing wrong and right than it is for an athlete to tell himself.
Knowledge of Performance This type of feedback can come from an athletes own perception however it is more likely to come from an external source such as video replays. This type of feedback is often very technical including minor points on technique. Knowledge of Results This type of feedback comes from external sources such as the result of a game or the judges scores. Athletes can use these results to see if they are playing well or playing poorly. It is more important in individual events and not so useful in football because it is a team game. 3-1
All these types of feedback are useless unless an athlete has a good amount ofcoachability. This is the ability to take in this feedback and use it to develop an athlete’s game. Peter Crouch obviously has good coachability because he has shown an enourmouse amount of improvement throughout his career starting at a low level and working up to an extremely high international level. This cannot have been done without using all four types of feedback to improve his game
