Squats Versus Lunge


The purpose of my project grade sheet is to get a better understanding of the movement I
chose which was squats versus lunges. The body of my research paper will give the reader a
better understanding of the following for my specific movement.

Anatomy: The origin and insertions that are involved include the Glutes- gluteus medius,
gluteus maximus, Hamstrings- lliotibial band, biceps femoris, semitendinosus, adductor
magnus, gracilis, semimembranosus. Calves- Gastrocnemius, soleus, peroneus brevis, flexor
hallucis longus. Thighs- Pectineus, sartorius, adductor longus, tensor fasciae latae,
gracilis, quadriceps, rectus femoris, vastus intermedius, vastus lateralis, and vastus
medialis. These muscles originate just beneath the gluteus maximus on the pelvic bone and
attach on the tibia. The primary functions are knee flexions which involve bringing the
heel towards the gluteus maximus and hip extensions moving the leg to the rear end. Squats
and lunges are a simple but very effective exercise for the lower bodies specifically the
legs. It helps with balance and coordination which comes very useful for any sporting
events as well as muscle development. The hamstrings, gluteus, and quadriceps muscles can
be worked by using dumbbells, barbells or just by simply using your own body weight, which
we refer to as calisthenics. The most important point to remember about calisthenics is
that if your muscles do not receive more stress than what they are used to, you are
wasting your time. The advantages of using dumbbells and barbells are more effective in
developing the smaller synergistic (helping) muscles and stabilizer muscles. Synergism is
the combined effects of two or more parts of forces or agents which is greater than the
sum of individual effects. The bone articulations that are involved include the pelvic
bone, tibia bone and femur. The soft tissue ligaments (connects bone to bone) and tendons
(connects muscle to bone) that are involved are the anterior and posterior cruciates,
patella tendon connects quadriceps muscles to patella, and it also involves the shins.


Kinetics: Sir Isaac Newton a scientist during the 1600's, made observations about the
world surrounding him. The observations he came up with and out of those he developed the
three laws of motion. Newton's laws of motion explain rest, constant motion, and
acceleration motion; He described how balance and unbalanced forces act to cause the
states of motions. In other words they are fundamental to understanding human movement.
The laws that account for my movements are the law of inertia, which is the first law, it
states "a body in motion tends to remain in motion at the same speed in a straight line
