Exercise Mechanics: Creating Unlimited Exercise for Every Population

Exercise Mechanics: Creating Unlimited Exercise for Every Population

299.00

Instructor: Michelle Amore, MS

Date: Saturday May 4th

Course Description:

This course explores basic concepts in physics and biomechanics and their direct correlation to exercise design and programming for all populations. Variables associated with Newton’s Laws, the variables of force, inertial properties, and torque loading with be used to develop a strategic exercise development though process. The development of effective programming for general populations, athletes, older adults, and children will be discussed and demonstrated. Fundamental elements such as external force application and decision making regarding frequency, intensity, time, and intension will be discussed. Students will also be introduced to various pathophysiological states associated with the skeletomuscular system and potential intervention strategies.
