The study of the movement of the human body is known as Biomechanics and researchers have tested and cataloged a vast array of ways in which outside forces work on the body.
Exercise, weight bearing work, even natural movements are all being documented and just about anything you need to know about movement and the body can be looked at in depth.
In the below video Scott Lynn explains how biomechanics can help you avoid injury in lifting and the best ways to maximize your training.
- The kinetics lets you look under the hood a bit more. It helps you understand what’s driving the motion that you’re seeing.
- There are some relatively easy ways to adjust where your body weight is in relation to your balance. You can hold weights when doing squats to change where you position your body weight and stick your hips further back.
- You need to have variability in training in order to see significant improvement
“”Mechanics is actually defined as the influence of force on body, so really what we’re studying is how forces affect.””
