Abstract

Anatomy is the study of the structures of the body. Physiology is the study of the function of the structures. The study of both provides a solid understanding of the body and how to develop it and rehabilitate it. There is a great divergence in exercise physiology departments in teaching exercise physiology in general and anatomy in particular. Exercise physiologists must not be disempowered from anatomy. To not have the power to influence the profession would be an appalling state of affairs. Yet, it is clear that students are graduating without knowing in detail which muscles are responsible for what actions.
