Kinetic Anatomy, Third Edition Print CE Course guides you through the bones, joints, muscles, muscle attachments, nerves, and blood vessels of the body with a full-color illustrated text. In-depth knowledge of the anatomical structures involved with physical movement will help you to identify and correct postural problems, prevent injury, and individualize exercise programs for your clients.

    Kinetic Anatomy, Third Edition, guides you through identification of all of the bones in the human body as well as their anatomical landmarks. You will be able to identify the ligaments and tendons that attach the bones and form the major joints as well as the major muscles of the human body. What separates this course from a standard anatomy review is the application of anatomy to specific training exercises of the upper and lower body and core and descriptions of the fundamental movements of the human body. At the conclusion of the course, you will take a continuing education exam to receive credit through participating organizations.

    Course Objectives
    • Identify all the bones of the human body and their anatomical landmarks.

    Reviews

    "I will be able to explain the mechanics of exercise, along with the bones and muscles involved, to better visualize the targeted muscle that’s working. For clients with special needs or previous injuries, I will be able to explain what is going on in their bodies while performing a specific exercise and how it will help them overcome their current situation."

    J. Montanez—FPO

    "I will use this course and textbook as a reference when helping clients with injuries. This course was a great refresher on basic anatomy and but also emphasized muscle function when relating to strength training.”

    M. Little—Ballwin, Missouri

    "This course gave me greater knowledge of anatomy and a deeper understanding of movement and nerve relationship. Also, the course goes into program development, assessment, and developing movements and exercises for optimizing gym time."

    D. Crozier—Huntsville, Alabama

    "This course gave me more knowledgeable of what muscle groups my clients are using when performing Pilates and yoga exercises. It was a great refresher from my original certification for Pilates and for yoga."

    S. Lea—Temecula, California

    "I gained an in-depth understanding of how the bones, muscles, nerves, and vessels relate to one another during movement. There are great illustrations and explanations. This information will enable me to do a better job of selecting appropriate exercises and understanding injuries and their causes."

    D. Ferre—Tucson, Arizona
