About the Class

Are you interested in learning about sports science?

What will you learn in this course?

  • In this course, We will be focusing on the biomechanics of sport. Sports biomechanics focuses on the mechanics of sporting actions, explaining how the human body generates forces and produces movement.
  • Sports biomechanics can be an effective tool in helping athletes improve their performance and reduce their injury risk.

In this course we will focus on the key topics of sports biomechanics; these being:

  • Forces and Newton's laws
  • Skeletal system
  • Muscular system
  • Speed, Velocity, and acceleration
  • Work, Energy, and power
  • Analyzing motion
  • Projectile motion
  • Fluid dynamics

In total there are 18 videos to watch; Totaling over 4 hours of content. Each topic has 1-3 videos, with each video lasting between 3-29 minutes. This content includes tasks for you to complete, as well as practical demonstrations to help your understanding. This course is delivered by an experienced lecturer in sports biomechanics, Who has a master's degree in sports and exercise science from Loughborough University.
