Unit: BIOS3065: Anatomical Analysis of Exercise (6 CP)
Mode: Normal-Day
On Offer: Yes
Level: Senior
Faculty/School: Biomedical Science
Unit Coordinator/s: A/Prof Ginn, Karen
Session options: Semester 2
Versions for this Unit:
Campus: Cumberland
Pre-Requisites: BIOS1168 AND BIOS1169. Preference will be given to students who have achieved graded passes in prerequisite units of study
Brief Handbook Description: This unit of study will extend the student's knowledge of functional musculoskeletal anatomy by applying functional anatomy principles to the analysis of exercises. Relevant research and advanced knowledge of functional musculoskeletal anatomical concepts will be used to explore exercises designed to: strengthen and lengthen specific muscles; improve muscle coordination; develop dynamic stability; and prevent the development of muscle imbalances that may contribute to musculoskeletal injury.The application of musculoskeletal anatomy principles to increase exercise difficulty and variety will also be explored. This unit will include laboratory classes in which human cadavers are studied; attendance at such classes is strongly encouraged.

Attribute Practiced Assessed
Unit has not been assigned any attributes yet.

These goals are selected from Program competency standards in Exercise Science which defines overall goals for courses where this unit is primarily offered. See Program competency standards in Exercise Science for details of the attributes and levels to be developed in the course as a whole. Percentage figures alongside each course goal provide a rough indication of their relative weighting in assessment for this unit. Note that not all goals are necessarily part of assessment. Some may be more about practice activity. See Learning outcomes for details of what is assessed in relation to each goal and Assessment for details of how the outcome is assessed.
