1. Perform a chin-up (palms supinated) and determine which muscles are the prime movers, stabilizers, andsynergists. Is there a difference with a pull-up (palms pronated)? If so, what are the differences? Do as manychin-ups as possible. Which muscles inhibit your ability to perform more repetitions? What does this say aboutthe chin-up as an effective exercise for the latissimus dorsi? List as many variations of pull-ups and chin-ups aspossible. Describe how what you have learned during this experience will help you in your future training.2. Identify and perform ten resistance training exercises. Describe which phase of the exercise is the eccentric,concentric, and isometric phase of the movement. At which phase is the muscle the strongest? Why? Describehow what you have learned during this experience will help you in your future training endeavors.3. List the six fundamental movements of major body segments (Unit 4). Give an example exercise for each. Inaddition, identify an exercise that combines three or more of the primary movements. List the exercise as wellas the movements involved. How will an understanding of fundamental movements help you in your futuretraining endeavors?4. Perform a posture test on yourself and a friend. What deviations do you observe? What exercises and stretchescan correct these deviations? Discuss the procedure(s) you used, your findings, how you came to your conclusions,and what your recommendations are. How does an understanding of posture, posture assessment, and posturecorrection help you in your future training endeavors?
1. Perform at least one exercise for each major muscle group on a stability ball. On another day, perform the sameexercises in a stationary position (i.e., not on a stability ball.) Report the following. List the exercises youperformed. Were you able to use the same weight on the stability ball? If not, why do you think you could notuse as much resistance? What populations would benefit from stability ball training? Are there certainindividuals who should not use a stability ball? How will this learning experience and the knowledge you havegained from it help you in your future training endeavors?
