Flashcards in NASM Free ch. 6 General Terms Deck (7)
The KINETIC CHAIN can be defied as what?
1. The human movement system
2. How different segments of the body work together
The human movement system can also be referred to as what?
which is comprised of what 3 parts?
The kinetic chain
1. Nervous System
2. Muscular System
3. Skeletal System
When a tight muscle causes decreased neural drive of its antagonist. (the opposing muscle will be lengthened and in an underactive state)
What is ALTERED RECIPRICAL INHIBITION?
What is the neuromuscular phenomenon that occurs when inappropriate muscles take over the function of a weak or inhibited prime mover.
Explain how hip flexors during a squat can demonstrate RECIPROCAL INHIBITION and SYNERGISTIC DOMINANCE.
TIGHT HIP FLEXORS during SQUATS (which use glutes and quads but some hams because of hip extension)
--Causes reduced signals from the brain TO the GLUT MAX (which performs the majority of heavy lifting)
(ALTERED RECIPROCAL INHIBITION)
--Causes SYNERGISTS like PIRAFORMIS to TAKE OVER (SYNERGISTIC DOMINANCE)
What are 5 kinetic chain checkpoints?
3. Lumbo-pelvic-hip complex (LPHC)
5. Head and cervical spine
