Americans sit more now than any other time in history. This can lead to a variety of health issues including injuries running the length of the body.
Using approximately 400-500 words, describe how you are currently sitting. Which muscles would need to be activated or stretched to improve your posture? What are some potential effects on your body from sitting long term? Include at least two scholarly references (using APA formatting and style) to guide your answers.
assignment 2: We began looking at the movement that is taking place at each joint in Unit 1 and with our muscular anatomy, we can examine what muscles are creating those motions.
Using the sport’s skill from Unit 1, create an Excel spreadsheet to breakdown the movement at each joint during each phase of the movement. The first column should list all the joints of the body (Cervical, Lumbar, Shoulder Girdle, Shoulder Joint, Elbow, Radioulnar, Wrist, Fingers, Hip, Knee, Ankle/Subtalar, Toes) while the first row should have the phases of movement (Stance phase, Preparatory phase, Movement phase, and Follow-through phase). In each box, list the movement occurring, muscles involved, and whether the contractions are isometric, concentric, or eccentric. For reference, please see page 397 in the textbook.
