    Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise 3ed

    £81.00 £90.00
    Helps students learn to appreciate the consequences of external forces, how the body generates internal forces to maintain position, and how forces create movement in physical activities. This title also offers a link to an accompanying web resource that includes all of the problems from the book, separated by chapter, and 10 sample problems.

    Biomechanics of Training and Testing: Innovative Concepts and Simple Field Methods

    £197.99 £219.99
    Written and edited by the same researchers who proposed and validated these methods, this book not only presents innovative methods for an efficient training and testing process (most of which are based on very simple technology and data processing methods), but also discusses the associated background information.

    Body Studies: The Basics

    £17.99 £19.99
    Drawing on contemporary culture, this book introduces readers to the key concerns and debates surrounding the study of the sociological body.

    Developing Agility and Quickness

    £15.29 £16.99
    Contains more than 100 drills to improve sport-specific quickness and agility. This title focuses on improving athletes' fleetness of foot, speed of change of direction and reaction time. Applicable across almost every sport, it explains the purposes behind the training, presents tests to gauge ability and monitor progress.

    Diagnosis and Treatment of Movement Impairment Syndromes

    £59.39 £65.99
    Presents a classification system of mechanical pain syndromes that is designed to direct the exercise prescription and the correction of faulty movement patterns.
