addition, identify an exercise that combines three or more of the primary movements. List the exercise as well as the movements involved. How will an understanding of fundamental movements help you in your future training endeavors? Ans. The six fundamental movements of major body segments are – aFlexion: It is the decrease in angle between two body segments. It happens or occurs at the knee, elbow, shoulder and hip joints. An example of flexion can be found in the exercise such as windshield wipers, lumbar rolls and bicep curl.bExtension: It is the increase in angle between two body segments. Basically it is the opposite of flexion. Leg extension is an example of extension.cAbduction: Movement of the body part or segment away from the midline. An example is the dumbbell lateral raise exercise for the shoulders.dAdduction: This is the opposite of abduction as in adduction, the movement of the body segment is towards the midline. An example would be the hip adductor machine. In this machine, your inner thighs move away from the midline due to the push of the weight and whenwe pull it to bring the thighs together, it is an act of adduction.eRotation: This is the circular movement of the part on a long axis. There are various kinds of rotation such as Pronation, Supination, Eversion and Inversion. An example of this movement is aback hand smash in a game of tennis or badminton.fCircumduction: It is known as the sequential combination of movements outlining a geometric cone. An example of this movement can be seen during warm up exercises where you move yourarms forward and backward.An exercise that uses several of these movements is the deadlift. The leg muscles and upper body muscles must contract to hold the body in the correct position for stabilization. During this exercise we can see evidence of abduction, flexion and extension. There are also other compound exercises such as the bench press, squat, standing barbell military press, etc. This knowledge of the fundamental movements will help me in the creation and implementationof designing custom and safe workouts for my clients. I will be able to pass on my knowledge an guide them through the process in a step by step manner. When all this is put into place we can achieve the best performance from a person.Hatfield, Frederick C.
