Goals: The purpose of this lesson is to increase students’ understanding of muscular function by investigating the structure, metabolism and function of muscle cells. The class will be opened with a discussion regarding how weight training affects health and performance. The discussion will end with a series of “hook questions” that the class should be able to answer by the end of the period. Ideally, by the end of the class the students will have an appreciation for why the body needs so many seemingly redundant muscles.
