This revised text is designed for undergraduate and graduate courses in kinesiology as offered in the departments of physical education and health education. This revision continues to provide comprehensive coverage of anatomy,biology,and sports performance necessary to enable students to analyze movement,identify movement errors,and suggest correct performance cues. The biomechanical material,such as the math and physics review,conversion tables,and mechanical problems,gives students quantitative experience and makes the text more adaptable to a lecture/discussion course with experience-oriented homework,or to a course with a formal laboratory. Suggested laboratory experiences are featured at the ends of chapters. The book also includes detailed coverage of issues of current interest,such as the Fossbury flop high jump style,Side Stroke analysis,and an innovative new racing dive style.
