This video discusses the foundational concepts of biomechanics, starting with anatomy and the body's systems, including muscular, skeletal, and nervous systems. Posture and position are explained, along with the skeletal system and the different types of joints that exist within the human body. The speaker emphasizes the importance of understanding joint mechanics and introduces the concept of levers and muscle contractions. The different types of levers and muscle contractions are explained using examples. Overall, this section provides a comprehensive overview of the basics of biomechanics and lays the foundation for further study on the subject.
In the video "Clase 1 Biomecanica," the instructor explains the concepts of agonists, synergists, and antagonists in the context of biomechanics. The example of the elbow is used to demonstrate how the agonist and antagonist constantly alternate roles, leading to movement in the joints. The video also includes a task for students to analyze movements in sports by selecting an image and describing the movements made by two or three joints according to tissue, axis, and shape. The final objective is to complete a comprehensive analysis of a particular sports movement.
