  • Maximum Contraction Lab Report

    Introduction: Temperature can affect the rate at which an action potential is generated to excite an action potential within a given skeletal muscle. Maximum contraction is the ability of the muscle to recruit and produce its greatest force during a contraction, and we can observe these effects by using a grip force transducer, which records the functional grip force of the hand. Therefore, the purpose of this lab was to discern how varying temperatures affect maximum contraction. I…

  • Creatine Research Paper

    needs two grams per day to see an increase in muscle growth. While creatine is commonly taken as a supplement, it is also found naturally in one’s diet, since it is found in some animals. “Creatine is most recognized for its ability to generate muscular energy, allowing athletes to train at higher intensities for longer periods of time” (Bird 24). The reason why creatine is legal is that it does not display the threat for the human body. There has been researching done that agrees…

  • Research Paper On Lungs

    Lungs The lungs are important part of our bodies. These lungs represent organs that filled with air. They locate in each side of the chest. A thin tissue layer covers the lungs; this tissue is called the pleura. The importance of lungs is to inhale the air and exhale it (1). In order to protect our lungs, we have to learn how our lungs work. First of all, we breathe the air by the nose or the mouth, then drawn down through the throat into the windpipe (trachea). Tracheasplits out into two tubes…

  • Sports Specific Training Essay

    Sports specific training focuses on movements that are specific to a sport and that must be developed through repetition of movement. Some examples of repetitious movement would be: free throwing, marathon running, and sprinting. A strong athletic base must be built in order to achieve any level of excellence in sports. No matter what the sport is you must have sport specific training in order to achieve speed and endurance. Core training is an essential part of sports training and will…

  • Muscle Tissue Analysis

    be the focus as they result in the fluctuating EMG amplitudes observed throughout this experiment. Research investigating the EMG-fatigue relationship give professionals at the forefront of exercise physiology useful tools to further understand muscular fatigue during exercise. The purpose of this investigation was to identify the effects of fatigue—as a result of submaximal and maximal handgrip contractions—on EMG amplitude. It is hypothesized that EMG amplitude will increase with increasing…

  • Essay On Hippotherapy

    Hippotherapy has been used as far back as the time of the Greeks. Hippocrates did a great deal of studying on this type of therapy process. Hippotherapy is a type of therapy that involves horses and people working together. The children will brush, tack, and ride their horse. Riding the horse allows the child to use their core more; therefore, improving their balance, and even motor functions. Through the years, hippotherapy has evolved and broken off into four separate types. There is: valuing,…

  • Muscles In Care

    As part of my role as a care worker, from time to time I may be required to assist service users to move or reposition them. It is important to understand the basic anatomy and physiology to help reduce any harm to myself or others when using moving and handling procedures. Muscles act like levers and allow bone, at a joint, to act like hinges. Muscles pull and move bones at particular joints which makes the joint move and therefor the body moves. When a muscle contracts it pulls the bone at a…

  • Essay On Supraspinatus

    The supraspinatus is one of the four muscles that make up the rotator cuff in the shoulder. The body of the tendon lies along the supraspinous fossa of the scapula and attaches laterally to the humeral head. Its purpose is to withstand the inferior gravitational exertions set over the shoulder joint due to the downward pull of the weight of the upper limb. Not only that, but the supraspinatus also helps the shoulder joint stay in place. The supraspinatus muscle is primarily used for abduction.…

  • Beta Alanine Research Paper

    Beta Alanine Beta Alanine is a dietary supplement that is designed to mimic the action of the non-essential amino acid alanine that is produced naturally in the healthy body. The body to produce proteins uses amino acids. The body uses alanine to convert sugar to energy and eliminate toxins from the body. Beta alanine is the manufactured nutritional performance supplement that helps the body produce more energy and eliminate fatigue experienced by athletes. This synthetic form of amino acid is…

  • Summary: The Skeletal System

    The skeletal system is essential to the working of the human body. It provides protection and aids with movement, also. Approximately 20% of the human body’s mass is attributed to the skeletal system. This system is mostly comprised of bones, but there are other critical elements included as well. These elements are ligaments and cartilage. The human skeletal system is divided into two parts; the axial and appendicular skeletons. The axial skeleton is further divided, from superior to inferior…
