This course outlines foundation principles of kinesiology and provides a review of all human physiological systems relevant to exercise. The course particularly develops knowledge necessary to identify the structural and functional requirements of the neuro-musculoskeletal system in relation to human motion during a variety of physical activities. A thorough investigation of a range of issues related to exercise and the use of the musculoskeletal system across the lifespan and with various populations will be undertaken. Observation and analysis of various practical activities will be undertaken to increase knowledge and skills with regards to movement activities and reporting on relevant aspects relevant to exercise prescription. Relevant research methods and current research information on functional anatomy will be outlined.
This course contains a mandatory residential school for external students at the Ipswich Campus and mandatory on-campus laboratories or practical classes for on-campus students.
