If children are exposed to physical activity at a young age, and a variety of sports involving coordination their ability to learn new activities in adulthood requiring coordination is much better than adults who were not as physically active.

I answer yes definitely, but some people learn new movements much faster due to better motor coordination.

And I want to do this stuff really relaly badly. GAHH. not enough time. not enough money. but one day I will devote myself obsessively to parkour and gymnastics/tricking.
"Performance during stretch-shortening cycle exercise is influenced by the visco-elastic properties of the muscle-tendon units. During stretching of an activated muscle, mechanical energy is absorbed in the tendon structures (tendon and aponeurosis) and this energy can subsequently be re-utilized if shortening of the muscle immediately follows the stretching. According to Biscotti (2000), 72% of the elastic energy restitution action comes from tendons, 28% - from contractile elements of muscles.
