Kinesiology: Biomechanics of Human Movement
For example, the forces required to lift an Olympic barbell. Dynamics: The study of objects subjected to acceleration/deceleration. Dynamics is from the branch of classical mechanics in physics which is involved with the motion of bodies; it is divided into two other branches, kinematics and kinetics. An example for this category would be the flight speed and path of a baseball after it has been struck.
The best stretching ought to encompass suitable static, as well as dynamic practices. Some of the techniques involve slow elongation of muscle and holding it in stretched state for some time and dynamic techniques, which is slow, cyclical elongating, holding, and shortening of a muscle (Leonard 144). Despite the existence of static and dynamic categories of muscle stretching, other types of muscle stretching are also in existence. , such as Proprioceptive Neuromuscular Facilitation (PNF), which involves the altering activation in a compressed muscle with reflexive protraction of the muscle. In addition, there is ballistic that involves repeated prancing movements, wherein tendon are swiftly elongated and instantly slackened.
Professions require formal study of theoretical and specialized knowledge that allows for the reliable solution to problems. This is the traditional meaning of the word “professional,” and it is different than its common use today. Today people refer to professional athletes or painters because people earn a living with these jobs, but I believe that kinesiology careers should strive to be more like true professions such as medicine or law.
