A standout among introductory biomechanics texts, Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise, Fourth Edition With Web Resource, takes a unique approach to introducing exercise and sport biomechanics. Using simple terms, the book presents mechanics before functional anatomy, helping students first understand external forces and their effects on motion; then explores how the musculoskeletal system responds and generates its own internal forces to maintain position; and finally shows how to apply biomechanical principles to analyze movement and ultimately improve performance. The fourth edition expands its commitment to enabling students to discover the principles of biomechanics through observation. Easy-to-understand experiments are presented for students to try in the classroom or on their own. Sample problem sidebars guide students through choosing the appropriate equation to determine the forces acting or motion occurring in a specific scenario and then helps them solve the equation. This practical approach—combining clear illustrations, sample calculations, and encouragement for active learning—helps students develop a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanical concepts. In addition to careful updates throughout the book, other new enhancements in the fourth edition include the following: New content explores the technologies and devices available to coaches, athletes, and the general public to measure aspects of athletes’ movements. New full-color art and diagrams enhance the text and help students visualize mechanics in real-world scenarios. Explanations of the equations used in the text make the content more accessible to students. New concept application boxes provide deeper analysis of the field use of biomechanics, with topics such as the Magnus effect in baseball pitching, the wetsuit effect in triathlons, power output in cycling, centripetal acceleration when running a curve, and the work-energy principles in modern shot putting. Other learning aids include bold key terms, chapter objectives, and a guide to key equations and abbreviations. The chapters include a total of 18 sample problems that students can solve using a step-by-step process. A companion web resource offers additional review questions and problem sets. Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise, Fourth Edition, introduces the biomechanics of human movement in a clear and concise manner while promoting an active, engaged learning experience. Students will discover the principles of mechanics for themselves, resulting in a strong understanding of the subject matter.

Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise, Second Edition, introduces exercise and sport biomechanics in concise terms rather than focusing on complex math and physics. This book helps students learn to appreciate external forces and their effects, how the body generates forces to maintain position, and how forces create movement in physical activities.

Fundamental Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise is an engaging and comprehensive introductory textbook that explains biomechanical concepts from first principles, showing clearly how the science relates to real sport and exercise situations. The book is divided into two parts. The first provides a clear and detailed introduction to the structure and function of the human musculoskeletal system and its structural adaptations, essential for a thorough understanding of human movement. The second part focuses on the biomechanics of movement, describing the forces that act on the human body and the effects of those forces on the movement of the body. Every chapter includes numerous applied examples from sport and exercise, helping the student to understand how mechanical concepts describe both simple and complex movements, from running and jumping to pole-vaulting or kicking a football. In addition, innovative worksheets for field and laboratory work are included that contain clear objectives, a description of method, data recording sheets, plus a set of exemplary data and worked analysis. Alongside these useful features are definitions of key terms plus review questions to aid student learning, with detailed solutions provided for all numerical questions. No other textbook offers such a clear, easy-to-understand introduction to the fundamentals of biomechanics. This is an essential textbook for any biomechanics course taken as part of degree programme in sport and exercise science, kinesiology, physical therapy, sports coaching or athletic training.

The purpose of this book is to develop knowledge and understanding of fundamental biomechanical principles and their application in qualitative and quantitative analysis of movement. The key to understanding biomechanics is a thorough understanding of the concepts of force, Newton's laws of motion, work and energy. All of the fundamental biomechanical concepts and principles will be explained from first principles and illustrated with reference to a large number of examples. No previous knowledge of mechanics will be assumed. An appreciation of both the impulse-momentum approach and the work-energy approach to movement analysis is necessary in order to fully understand biomechanical analysis of movement and this book covers both approaches. The organisation and presentation of the book is based on the open-learning model: Chapter overviews to summarise the content of each chapter All biomechanical concepts and principles are explained from first principles Key terms defined in a Glossary Applied examples to illustrate all concepts and principles Extensive use of figures and conceptual models Review questions with detailed solutions to all numerical questions Practical worksheets with example results References to guide further learning Extensive index Extensive glossary
