Understand exercise anatomy with this highly interactive course In this highly interactive online course you will learn to better understand exercise anatomy and be able to create and modify exercise programs designed to enhance your client’s physical fitness or sport performance, or help a client rehabilitate after an injury or surgery. This course combines three dynamic learning components: an online study guide, the best-selling book, Strength Training Anatomy, Second Edition, by Frédéric Delavier, and software links. Exercise anatomy helps us to understand how the body’s structures interact to cause movement and how these respond and adapt to exercise training. The course focuses on the three main structural and functional systems of the body essential to movement: the skeletal system, the muscular system, and the nervous system. Strength Training Anatomy, Second Edition, is the companion text used to help you apply exercise anatomy to real life strength training exercises. The text contains detailed anatomical drawings of strength exercises for the entire body. is the Primal Pictures software that accompanies the course. The direct links between the online course material and provide the best anatomical 3-D images for each topic from several Primal products. The learner can manipulate the images in the links to view structures in 3-D motion or to add layer upon layer until structures are constructed from bone to skin.
