FUNDAMENTAL PRINCIPLES OF EXERCISE ANALYSIS
It is essential to the structure and function of the musculoskeletal system that a personal trainer has the skills to analyze the potential risk of an exercise and allow for the greatest opportunity to provide safe, effective, and efficient resistance training exercise instruction. This course will introduce concepts to help the fitness professional understand the difference between “biomimicry” and biomechanics.
We will present perspectives grounded in the Resistance Training Specialist L-1 course during the course. We will provide a deductive step-by-step biomechanical model for resistance training exercise analysis.
Several common exercises will be presented and analyzed, and the results may surprise you.
We will address many factors that affect resistance training exercises by exploring Mechanics, Physics, Anatomy, and Kinesiology.
Participants will be able to:
Understand how to analyze the safety, efficiency, and effectiveness of exercise through the use of sound scientific methods and principles
Better understand the effect of inappropriate force application and the potential effect on the musculoskeletal system.
Determine the potential risk or benefit of an exercise
