Anatomy and Physiology Education

I've been doing CrossFit for a little over a year now. Went to a level 1 cert in August and will be going to the barbell and olympic lifting certs in 2009. Now that we have an affiliate open in town, I'm hoping to start training people there in the next few months. I've been shadowing the lead trainer when I can and will keep doing that. I've found a lot of great resources for teaching and coaching the movements and key lifts, but aside from obviously lacking experience I think I'm really lacking some basic knowledge of anatomy and physiology.

As I'm not prepared or in a position to go back to school full-time, I'm looking for something I can work on at home beyond just picking up some textbooks. Does anyone know of any correspodance/online courses that would be available here? I'm not looking for a certification, just a course with some structure.

Check out the Human Kinetics site. I've never taken anything from them, but I've heard good things.

I don't remember the name of them but if you can find the college level human anatomy coloring books they make anatomy very easy to learn.

Re: Anatomy and Physiology Education

Yeah, I definitely recommend the Human Kinetics books. Most of all I would suggest picking up the "Science and PRactice of Strength Training" by by Zatsiorsky and the "Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise".

Yeah, that's the one. The tedious act of coloring really translates phenomenally to remembering what you've been coloring.

Great cheap book for learning anatomy.
