  1. Kinesiology
    Study of motion or human movement
  2. Anatomic Kinesiology
    Stufy of human musculoskeletal system and musculotendinous system
  3. Biomechanics
    Application of mechanical physics to human motion
  4. Structural kinesiology
    stury of muscles as they are involved in science of movement. both skeletal and muscular structures are involved
  5. More than __ muscles are found in the body
  6. Who needs kinesiology and Why?
    • Who: Anatomists, coaches, strength and conditioning specialists, personal trainers, nurses, physical educators, PTs Physicians, athletic trainers, massage therapists, and others in health-related fields.
    • Why: there people should have an adequate knowledge and understanding og all large muscle groups to teach others how to strengthen, improve, and maintain these parts of human body. They should also know why specific exercises are done in conditioning and training of athletes.
  7. Anatomical position
