This course is designed to introduce the student to the basic fundamentals of human movement, structural characteristics, articulations, and muscular actions around the major joints. The student will apply the basic anatomical and physical principles of human motion, the principles of biomechanics and the theory of neuromuscular action used in motor skills for occupational, daily living activities, and fitness across the lifespan. Upon completion of the course, the student will be able to fully analyze joint actions and muscles involved in multi-joint exercises or sport movements. In addition, the student will be able to identify and recommend exercises to enhance performance based on appropriate muscular analysis.
