Clinical Exercise Physiology
1. Define Physical Activity, Sudden Cardiac Death, Myocardial Infarction
-Physical Activity: Any bodily movement produced by skeletal muscles that result in caloric
-SCD: Sudden Cardiac Death: vent
Biomechanics: application of mechanical principles in the study of living organisms
Mechanics: physics branch, analyzes actions of forces on particles and mechanical systems
Rigid-body Mechanics: *we assume the body is perfectly rigid*
BIOMECHANICS MATERIAL 2
Bone: made up of calcium, collagen, water, magnesium, sodium, and fluoride
o Calcium (60-70% of bone weight) provides the stiffness
o *2 types of calcium: calcium phosphate and calcium carbonate
o Flexibility provided by
