Content

This unit provides students with an advanced understanding of musculoskeletal anatomy in relation to exercise. A key focus of the unit will be on the application of musculoskeletal and neurological anatomy to exercise prescription. A detailed analysis of the anatomical, biomechanical and neuromuscular basis of strength based exercise will be explored. The application of anatomical knowledge will be analysed in the context of sport, pathology and injury.
