CLASS DESCRIPTION:


DBC Level One is an introductory course to the scientific field of Biomechanics. Many degree programs offer an “Introduction to Biomechanics” course but like all introductory science courses these courses are severely simplified, intended only to provide an awareness of the field. They use basic algebra and elementary physics to calculate javelin trajectory or the spin of a soccer ball but these significant simplifications, without exposure to the everyday practice often leaves students with the impression that the field is just an extension of physics and only entails calculating useless sports related motions for no apparent reason. 

The purpose of the DBC Level One course is to expose the participants to what goes on in biomechanics in the real world and the reasons it is so important to the health, fitness, medical, and athletic performance industries.

TAKEAWAYS:

Students will leave the course capable of performing a basic qualitative analysis, performing scientific literature searches, and hands on experience teaching and correcting movements we use every day in the gym. Students will also be shown how to qualify authors and their research on their own avoiding common pitfalls of integrating inaccurate/suspect information into their training.

There are no prerequisites in order to attend the course. No calculations will be done.  However, the course is intended for experienced trainers and medical professionals. It is not an entry level course to become a trainer unless you have background in STEM.
