Kin 350- Biomechanics
On completion of this lab students will be able to:
1) Find an article and show it to me to be approved and stamped.
Your summaries should be concise and to the point (500-700 words for the article summary). Summaries must be typed and double spaced for full credit. The article should be either
a) a biomechanical analysis of a movement or
b) an Electromyographic (EMG) analysis of a movement.
d) an anatomical analysis of a movement
e) a combination of the biomechanics and/or EMG and/or anatomcal kinesiology
Your summary should include the following categories with these headings:
1) Purpose: A) of the movement
B) of the analysis in the article
