1. Identify and correlate functional anatomy with common exercises for strength/motor control of the upper and lower body. 2. Identify origin, insertion, innervations and action of muscles reviewed. 3. Define Trendelenberg gait. 4. Identify the genetic factors that affect gaining strength and muscle mass. 5. Define strength training and differentiate between the specific strength training principles including: giant sets, super-sets, strength-duration curve, periodization and negative training. 6. Identify how strength training principles can serve to optimize results. 7. Recognize the consequences of improper technique. 8. Recognize considerations for the arthritic, diabetic, adolescent and older adult populations exercise. 9. Identify knee anatomy and physiology in context with incidence of injury. 10. Identify the strength goal percentage for quadricep to hamstring ratio. 11. Recognize optimal proprioception and strength exercises to prevent knee injuries. 12. Identify the physiology of stretching as it pertains to rehab applications. Differentiate between static and dynamic stretching.
