HPE 201 - Applied Anatomy/Kinesiology
3 Lecture Hours
Prerequisites: BIO 110 or BIO 151
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.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Identify and describe the skeletal and muscular systems.
- Identify and describe components and functions of the cardiovascular and respiratory systems.
- Describe basic concepts related to the nervous systems.
- Define specific relationships between body systems.
- Identify major muscle groups and their actions and demonstrate exercises to enhance muscular strength of specific muscle groups.
- Define specific joint movements including supination, pronation, flexion, extension, adduction, abduction, hyperextension, rotation, and circumduction.
- Describe the structure and nature of movement in the major joints of the body.
- Describe biomechanical principles that underlie the performance of various exercise and sport activities.
- Skeletal and muscular systems
- Cardiovascular and respiratory systems
- Nervous system
- Relationships between body systems
- Basic mechanical principles
- Mechanics of muscular and joint action
- Principles of human motion
