3. Yoga Biomechanics: Stretching Redefined (2018)

 Best Biomechanics Books To ReadThe book gives teachers a grounding in biomechanics so that they can easily use yoga and/or stretching with their students. Most yoga teacher schools provide only limited training in anatomy and biomechanics, and the study of the effect of mechanical forces on structure and function is often overlooked and/or misunderstood. Aesthetic cues (i.e. instructing students where to place their hands and feet in yoga asana) may not be biomechanically appropriate for everyone. Readers will learn to fit the pose to the student, rather than making the student fit the poseThis book:* Highlights useful,…

4. Sports Biomechanics: The Basics: Optimising Human Performance (2017)

 Best Biomechanics Books To ReadHuman beings are the ‘all-rounders’ of the natural world – while they aren’t naturally the quickest, biggest or strongest creatures, they can achieve more amazing physical feats than any other animal.Nowhere is this ability more pronounced than in sporting performance, the ideal area for studying the mechanics of a human – our biomechanics. But all too often the study of sports biomechanics can become bogged down in pure mathematics, tables and graphs that bear little resemblance to what you see on the field of play.In this comprehensively revised third edition of bestselling…

5. Foundations in Kinesiology and Biomechanics (2017)

 Best Biomechanics Books To ReadText A chapter organization that first focuses on typical or “normal” and then introduce the atypical or abnormal, building the knowledge base necessary to provide effective interventions. Discussions of the concept of mal-alignment (postural deviations) that are interwoven throughout the text. Coverage of the anatomy of the musculoskeletal and neurological systems. Tables at the end of each chapter that describe the muscles surrounding the joint and their origins, insertions, and innervations as well as a dermatome diagram of the specific area. Kinesiology in Action Interactive E-Book—the Foundation in Kinesiology…

6. Basic Biomechanics (2014)

 Best Biomechanics Books To ReadThe seventh edition of Basic Biomechanics has been significantly updated from the previous edition. The approach taken remains an integrated balance of qualitative and quantitative examples, applications, and problems designed to illustrate the principles discussed. This edition also retains the important sensitivity to the fact that some beginning students of biomechanics possess weak backgrounds in mathematics. For this reason, it includes numerous sample problems and applications, along with practical advice on approaching quantitative problems.With balanced, integrated coverage of applied anatomy,…

7. Basic Biomechanics (2011)

 Best Biomechanics Books To ReadBasic Biomechanics provides balanced coverage of anatomical structure, biomechanics, and applications, as recommended by the Biomechanics Academy of AAHPERD. Numerous applications from sport, ergonomics, and daily living-both qualitative and quantitative—help demonstrate the relevance of biomechanical principles beyond elite sports performance and into everyday life. The quantitative aspects of biomechanics are presented in a manageable, progressive fashion, and a mathematics appendix helps make the material accessible to all students, regardless of mathematical skill level….

9. Hitting Biomechanics (2017)

 Best Biomechanics Books To ReadSince the beginning of organized baseball there has been a great deal of material written on the extremely difficult skill of hitting a baseball. Hall of Fame players and former Major League hitting coaches have produced much of this literature, sharing decades of experience from the baseball “trenches” with those who aspire to follow in their profession. However, despite the thousands of publications written over the last hundred years, little information is available on the correct and essential body mechanics required to achieve success at the highest levels of…
