PHED 3333/ Mechanical Principles and Analysis of Movement Department of Kinesiology and Health Studies University of Central Oklahoma Fall 2011 Instructor: Paul House Office: Wantland Hall, Room 101A Office Hours: Tues 9-10; Thurs 9-10; Fri 9-12 PH#: 974-5259 Email: phouse@uco.edu Class Meeting Room: HPE 12 Meeting times and days: Mon, Wed, and Fri 12:00-12:50 PM Course Number: PHED 3333 CRN# 10412 Textbook: Brendan, B. Sport Mechanics for Coaches (3 rd Edition) 2010. COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course will provide a study of the application of the physical laws of motion in an analysis of musculoskeletal action. Emphasis will be placed on the relevancy of the anatomical basis as the focal point for mechanical concepts. GENERAL OBJECTIVES: To develop a functional knowledge of the human body, physiological adaptations of the body to motion, and application to functional exercise training. COURSE OBJECTIVES: Demonstrate the proper use of anatomical terminology when describing exercise and sports movements Discuss the various physiological and mechanical factors that affect movement Understand different factors effecting force output o Line of pull, joint angles. o Muscular length-tension relationship, force-velocity curve, hypertrophy o Neurologically: proprioceptors, synchronization, rate coding/frequency or action potentials. Examine the essentials of mechanical principles underlying specific joint actions Recognize key components of anatomical structures involved during exercise and sports movements Describe the various joint actions and planes in which movement occurs Understand directional terms relating to the anatomical position. Identify patterns of movement and gait during exercise and sports. Describe various types of muscle contractions and assumed roles of muscles during exercise and sports activities Compare balance, equilibrium and stability during various exercise and sports activities Discuss force and momentum effects on exercise and sports movements Explain Newton’s laws of motion during exercise and sports movements Identify different leverage systems within the human body. Identify groups of muscles responsible for each various types of sports motions
