Hello All:

This fall I will be teaching Kinesiology to undergraduate exercise science
students. I have put the class together with help from many of you who were
kind enough to have your Kinesiology or Biomechanics class information on
line. I'll be using the Hamill and Knutzen text and intend to cover all of
the biomechanics (chapters 8-12) first.

I hope to keep the students interested (awake?) by showing short clips of
relevant video tape that will help illustrate lecture topics. I'm not
thinking necessarily of digitized video, rather, I'm thinking of sports or
rehabilitation oriented videos from popular press. For instance, I just
received the video "Extreme machines: Pedal power" which contains about 3
or 4 minutes of attention getting biomechanics related information. I plan
to use this in my opening lecture. My hope is to make the class enjoyable
(despite the high amount of work required) and make biomechanics "cool" for
these undergrads.

Now to my question: Can any of you recommend videos of this sort which will
help me keep my students interested (and include where to obtain/purchase
them)? Any sport or medical biomechanics application would welcome! Perhaps
we could start a collection of avi files accessible on line?

Thanks in advance,

Jim Martin
