This course covers the most common exercise injuries and how to avoid them.
Human movement primarily involves two principles – biomechanics and kinesiology. Biomechanics is the study of motion and causes of motion of living things, using a branch of physics known as mechanics. It forms the basis for documenting human motion (kinematics) and the causes of that motion (kinetics).Kinesiology, also known as human kinetic, is the scientific study of human movement. It's primarily based on three fields of science – biomechanics, musculoskeletal anatomy, and neuromuscular physiology. Kinesiology addresses physiological, mechanical, and psychological mechanisms, and includes the study of gait, posture and body alignment, ergonomics, sports, exercise movements, and activities of daily living (ADL). In order to understand these principles you must first gain an understanding of the anatomical position, planes of motion, center of gravity, line of gravity, postural alignment and joint movement.
