Core 2 examines the scientific foundations of human movement. In this module, studentsexplore hw the body moves and why it moves in particularways. Students focus on the relationships between anatomy, physiology, fitness,biomechanics and efficient human movement.




...Content Covered...

HOW DO THE MUSCULOSKELETAL AND CARDIORESPIRATORY SYSTEMS OF THE BODY INFLUENCE AND RESPOND TO MOVEMENT?

WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PHYSICAL FITNESS, TRAINING AND MOVEMENT EFFICIENCY?
Health-related components of fitness
Skill-related components of fitness
Aerobic and Anaerobic training (FITT principle)
Immediate physiological responses to training

HOW DO BIOMECHANICAL PRINCIPLES INFLUENCE MOVEMENT?
Motion (linear, velocity, speed, acceleration, momentum)
Balance and stability (flotation, buoyancy, fluid resistance)
Force (applies, absorbs)
