This introductory text provides your students with the basics of anatomy, physiology, and the applications of kinesiology. With an easily accessible style, the authors apply kinesiology theory to sport and other real-life situations to promote understanding and retention.
Examines new technologies in the area of kinesiology to keep students up-to-date with the most recent developments in the field.
Provides the best and most current information so that students receive the latest information available.
Includes a new glossary that gives students an easily accessible resource for unfamiliar terms.
Considers variables such as gender, age, and skill level in both illustrations and text to provide students with information on realistic situations, not just ideal situations.
Applies complicated theories to real-life situations to help students prepare for careers in coaching, sports, and occupational or physical therapy.
Includes material on kinesiology, biomechanics, and sports skills to provide an extremely comprehensive resource on all these related fields.
Provides a practical analysis model, a system through which students can organize their analysis in accordance with the major objectives of the skill.
