I’m the human body there are 206 bones and what’s amazing about this is there are 6 key joints. The first joint we will dive into is the gliding joint which is going to allow gliding movements around the tarsometatarsals or the wrist. The gliding joint is also a synovial joint due to the gliding movement with synovial fluid. With the wrist joint it’s going to be lateral from the sternum distal from the elbow, and an exercise that utilizes this joint would be a calf raise at the ankle joint. The next joint is going to be the ellipsoid joint which is going to be found in the wrist where the ulna and radius meet the carpal bones. It would also be classified under synovial too. Since it’s in the wrist it will also be lateral to the sternum but distal from the elbow and a good exercise to explain this joint would be a wrist curl. One of my favorite joints would be the ball in socket and this one would be referring to the shoulder where the humorous meets the clavicle and scapula or even the hip where the femur meets the hip socket. The classification would also be synovial due to the free movement of the joint. We would also say it’s lateral of the sternum and proximal to the elbow and a good exercise for this joint would be lateral raises showing the ability to abduct and adduct. Next we have the hinge joint which can be found at the elbow where the humorous locks in with the ulna. We can classify this joint as a synovial one as well due to the free movement in one plane. This joint is lateral from the sternum and distal from the shoulder and a good workout to show it’s movement would be a bicep curl. Then we have the saddle joint and we can find one in the thumb and permits all most of the ball in socket movements except rotation. We will classify this joint as a synovial one as well due to the free movements as well. It is lateral to the sternum and distal to the wrist, and good exercise that utilizes this would be a deadlift because in order to hab the bar you have to wrap that hand around the bar as well as your thumb. The last joint we have is the pivot joint and that permits rotational movement along a long axis such as a vertebra of the neck and spine. This will also be a synovial classification. It would be medial to the sternum as well as proximal to the sternum, and a good movement/ exercise would be a back extension showing how we can flex the spine and extend the spine but in a limited fashion. One exercise that would use all 3 joint at once would be an over head press because it uses the gliding joints of the wrist, the ball in socket of the shoulder and as well the saddle joint in the elbow. With the knowledge of the joints and the different movements they are allowed to do it will help me identify proper and improper for such as over extension to help my clientele refrain from getting injuries!
