Biomechanics Assignment 1
1. Static or dynamic?
A. a supermarket checker at work = dynamic
B. A handstand = static
C. A sprint starting position = static
D. A hammer throw = dynamic
E. the en garde position in fencing = static
F. A football line stance = static
G. A chip shot in golf = dynamic
H. A basketball free throw = dynamic
I. Typing = dynamic
J. A conformation evaluation of a show horse = static
K. An older adult standing from a seated position = dynamic
2. With excessive weight training, the possible damaging effects on young musculoskeletal
structures are micro tears in the muscle tissues being used and also the potential to
completely pull the muscle and tendon away from the bone it is attached to.
3. Axis and Planes used?
A. The breathing movement for the front crawl (neck)
•Axis = internal-external rotation axis
•Plane = transverse plane
B. the vertical jump (knee)
•axis = mediolateral axis
•Plane = sagittal plane
C. the elementary backstroke (shoulder joint)
•Axis = anterior posterior axis
•Plane = frontal plane
D. the forehand drive in tennis (shoulder joint)
