The Basics: Optimising Human PerformanceBook - 2007
For coaches, athletes, and students of biomechanics, Sports Biomechanics: the basics answers real-world questions in sports using easily comprehensible language and clear and concise diagrams. Each chapter is devoted to answering questions in a single area of sports biomechanics with the scientific underpinnings of sports performance clearly explained.
Talks about biomechanics, the science of 'mechanics', a particular section of physics, as it relates to the human body. This book shows how, in the sport sciences, biomechanists do just about everything, including improving aerodynamics of vehicles, improving swim stroke technique to maximise swimming propulsion, and optimising running techniques.
