CSCS Study Questions: Structure and Function of the Muscular, Neuromuscular, Cardiovascular, and Respiratory Systems (Chapter 1)

Chapter 1 of the Essentials of Strength Training & Conditioning (3rd edition) textbook was written by Gary R. Hunter, Ph.D. and Robert T. Harris, Ph.D. This chapter contains a general overview of basic exercise science, exercise physiology, and human anatomy that will be relevant for taking the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) exam. This chapter covers macrostructure and microstructure of the muscular system, the sarcomere, sliding filament theory, muscle cell activation, muscle fiber types and characteristics, motor units, proprioceptors (muscle spindles and golgi tendon organs) and their purpose, heart anatomy and function, electrocardiogram, blood vessels, the lungs, and air exchange.
