Using biomechanics for exercise allows individuals to intelligently engineer exercise sessions to make optimal progress in the shortest time and in the safest way possible.
Fremont, CA: The study of biomechanics for exercise is an investigation of the forces of physical exercise on the structures of the body. The analysis of the effects of these forces has two key benefits. First, it helps the trainer to develop the technique and prevent injury. It also helps boost efficiency and increases strength, cardiovascular health and versatility of fitness. Using biomechanics for exercise allows individuals to intelligently engineer exercise sessions to make optimal progress in the shortest time and in the safest way possible.
During exercise, the body is experiencing physical stress in order to get stronger in some way, either by building muscle size and strength or by increasing the efficacy of the cardiovascular system. This stress is caused by lifting heavy weights or shifting the body in ways that increase the rate of heart rate and respiration.Correctly performed, movements create strength on bones and muscles in a way that causes microscopic damage to muscle fibres and stress on bones and tissues. Although this sounds undesirable, muscles and body tissues need to be improved. When these tiny bruises have healed over the course of a few days, the body is stronger than it was before exercise.
Studying exercise biomechanics helps the exerciser to understand how the body responds to various types of exercise strength, angle, and location. For example, there are several ways to strengthen the quadriceps, the main muscle that runs along the front of the leg.However, some methods require various surrounding muscles to varying degrees, while other methods bypass these auxiliary muscles and isolate the quadriceps. Squatting exercises include not only quadriceps, but also hamstrings, gluteus maximus, and hundreds of other muscles in the body to various degrees.
