Product Description

Instant Notes Sport and Exercise Biomechanics provides a comprehensive overview of the key concepts in exercise and sport biomechanics. The kinematics of motion are reviewed in detail, outlining the physics of motion. Mechanical characteristics of motion, the mechanisms of injury, and the analysis of the sport technique provides a source of valuable information.

Industry Reviews

"This book is an important reading for biomechanics students, teachers and even researchers as well as anyone interested in understanding motion." Journal of Sports Science & Medicine
