HPE 201 - Applied Anatomy/Kinesiology


Credits: 3
3 Lecture Hours

Prerequisites: BIO 110  or BIO 151  

 
Description
This course involves the study of the structure of the human body with special emphasis on the skeletal, muscular, cardiorespiratory and nervous systems. Basic principles of kinesiology concerning the analysis of human motion are also included.


Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
 

  1. Identify and describe the skeletal and muscular systems.
  2. Identify and describe components and functions of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
  3. Describe basic concepts related to the nervous systems.
  4. Define specific relationships between body systems.
  5. Identify major muscle groups and their actions and demonstrate exercises to enhance muscular strength of specific muscle groups.
  6. Define specific joint movements including supination, pronation, flexion, extension, adduction, abduction, hyperextension, rotation, and circumduction.
  7. Describe the structure and nature of movement in the major joints of the body.
  8. Describe biomechanical principles that underlie the performance of various exercise and sport activities.
