QHS baseball team tours La Tech Department of Kinesiology

It is one thing to work out and get in good shape. It is another to understand why you do certain exercises and to understand the mechanics of human movement. That is what the Quitman High School baseball team got to experience this past weekend thanks to David and Jessica Szymanski who gave them a tour of the Louisiana Tech Department of Kinesiology Human Performance Lab. 

Not only did the Wolverine club gain information on how to workout correctly which they hope will lead to being stronger and faster athletes but also learned more about the field of Kinesiology and where this can be a professional career. Types of normal professions a Kinesiologist will pursue include: Athletic Trainer, Chiropractor, Massage Therapist, Physical Therapist, Recreational Therapist and Occupational Therapist.
