What are kinesiology and biomechanics?

Kinesiology is the study of human motion which deals mainly with the muscles and their functions. It describes movement, which muscles are involved in the movement, and how exactly they are involved. It explores the muscular involvement in strength exercises and sports technique while Biomechanics looks at the physical factors involved in the movement.

What will you learn with KinX Learning ebooks?

  • Anatomy of all major joints in the body.
  • Articulations (basic movements) of all the major joints in the body.
  • Muscles involved in all joint articulations.
  • Muscle anatomy including origin, insertion, and function, of all the major muscles in the body.
  • Relationships between joints with muscles that cross two joints.
  • Exercises that demonstrate all joint articulations.
  • Proper exercise execution and safety considerations.
  • Sport-specific analysis of exercises.
  • Detailed analysis of exercises regarding kinesiologic characteristics such as poundage, grip, body position, and range of motion.
  • Biomechanical considerations of exercise.
  • Training factors and principles.
  • Training recommendations.

Why study the kinesiology and biomechanics of exercise?

  • Biomechanics and kinesiology are important fields of study for students, educators, are and trainers that are interested in exercise science.
  • By analyzing the movements that are performed in an exercise biomechanically and kinesiologically, you can you determine which joint actions and muscles play a major role and if the exercise is effective and safe.
  • Characteristics of exercise such as grip, body, and limb position have an impact on muscle involvement, so it is important to understand how they affect the results you obtain in a training program.
  • Proper technique can help duplicate sports specific movements and improve athletic performance. 

For an in-depth discussion on the study of the kinesiology and biomechanics of exercise, you can see The Need for Exercise Analysis.

Did you know it takes approximately 20 or more exercises to cover all the major joints and joint actions of the body?

With KinX Learning's Kinesiology of Exercise ebooks, you will learn all the joint actions, all the muscles involved, and get expert analysis of all the exercises that include these actions.
