Motor Learning and Exercise Physiology

So this semester I’m taking 2 courses to fulfill my leveling requirements for entrance into my M.S. program. While I find motor learning and exercise physiology terribly fascinating, I’m even more fascinated by the the fact that so few trainers and fitness enthusiasts have anything beyond a mere clue when it comes to these subjects. So what I’m going to do is this:

Shit all of my notes from two 3000-level notes onto the internet!

Actually, I’m going to post information from these classes that I find most trainers to have little to know practical understanding of. This is of course selfish, as reexplaining my notes will help me better learn the material but I figured that if a PT told me in person that throughout his coursework that he only experienced “a little” motor learning material, laypersons and working trainers could stand to benefit from this stuff. Of course I’ll label the posts as either “motor learning” or “exercise physiology” so if you’re not interested you can go back through my extensive achieves and find something else entertaining and enlightening.

  1. I think this rocks! Anyone else? Just don’t get it wrong. 🙂

    Hope your hand heals soon. I can’t tell you how often I hurt my hand inadvertantly doing a box jump and banging it on the way up or some other crazy space. Everyone I talk to you ususally has had the same thing and says it takes FOREVER to heal. Tendon sheat intact – and months and months. Good luck with your new training equipment. Always about the schwag….

    1. Hand is great now, Beck. The tiniest (tiniest!) bit of medial epicondylitis when I grab something hard. It’s not “hot” anymore, so that’s something I’m really liking.

  2. Yep, this does rock! I’m studying Exercise and Sport Sciences at the moment and I’m sure I will find this incredibly useful. Sometimes its a refreshing change reading from reliable, valid internet sources as opposed to text books. Explanations from some people can just make it sink in more. Just casual reading of Doug McGuff’s posts, articles and interviews has improved my understanding of Exercise Physiology and Biochemistry. Out of interest Skyler, what are your thoughts on Stuart McRoberts writings?
