    What is the study of biomechanics? What type of setting is the most useful in biomechanical studies? What is the goal of biomechanics? What is the connection between studying the biomechanical field and teaching physical activity?

    The study of biomechanics is when the laws of physics and movement are applied to human movement. Here is a good definition: http://weighttraining.about.com/od/glossaryofweighttraining/g/Biomechanics.htm

    Biomechanics applies to sport in that one can apply this knowledge to explain how muscles, bones, and joints react under different conditions and how to improve performance based upon these outcomes. For instance, here is a great link to the biomechanics of swimming: ...
