About the Author

William C. Whiting, PhD, is a professor and director of the biomechanics laboratory in the department of kinesiology at California State University at Northridge (CSUN) and an adjunct professor in the department of physiological science at UCLA. He has taught undergraduate and graduate courses in biomechanics and human anatomy for more than 25 years. As an author and researcher, Whiting has written more than 60 research articles, abstracts, and book chapters, along with two other books, Dynatomy: Dynamic Human Anatomy and the first edition of this book, both published by Human Kinetics, Inc.

Whiting has served on many editorial boards, including Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Strength and Conditioning Journal, ACSM's Health & Fitness Journal, and American Council on Exercise, FitnessMatters. He also serves as a reviewer for numerous journals, including Journal of Applied Biomechanics, Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise, Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, Strength and Conditioning Journal, Clinical Biomechanics, Clinical Kinesiology, and ACSM's Health & Fitness Journal.

In 2002 Whiting received CSUN's Distinguished Teaching Award. He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and a member of the American Society of Biomechanics, the International Society of Biomechanics, the National Strength and Conditioning Association, and the American Alliance for Health, Physical Education, Recreation, and Dance. He is also a former president of the Southwest Chapter of the American College of Sports Medicine.

Whiting lives in Glendale, California, with his wife, Marji, and children Trevor, Emmi, and Tad. He enjoys playing basketball, hiking, and reading.

Ronald F. Zernicke, PhD, is a professor at the University of Michigan in the division of kinesiology and the departments of orthopaedic surgery and biomedical engineering. He is also the director of the Musculoskeletal and Sport Injury Prevention Center.

Before moving to Ann Arbor in 2007, Zernicke was professor and chair of the department of kinesiology at UCLA and was professor for joint injury research at the University of Calgary faculties of kinesiology (dean, 1998-2005), medicine, and engineering. At the University of Calgary, Zernicke was the executive director of the Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institute and served as director of the Alberta Provincial CIHR training program in bone and joint health, a combined graduate program of the University of Calgary and University of Alberta.

Zernicke has taught courses in biomechanics and injury mechanisms at the university level for more than 30 years. He received the UCLA Distinguished Teaching Award as well as the City of Calgary Community Achievement Award in Education. He has authored more than 545 peer-reviewed research publications and two books, including the first edition of this book, which received the Preeminent Scholarly Publication Award from CSUN in 2002.

Zernicke has served on the editorial boards of Journal of Motor Behavior, Exercise and Sport Sciences Reviews, Journal of Biomechanics, and Clinical Journal of Sport Medicine. He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine and the Canadian Society of Biomechanics and an international fellow of the American Academy of Kinesiology and Physical Education.

Zernicke has also served as president of the International Society of Biomechanics (ISB), the American Society of Biomechanics (ASB), and the Canadian Society of Biomechanics (CSB). He continues to be an active member of the ISB, ASB, CSB, and the Canadian Orthopedic Research Society, Orthopedic Research Society (USA), American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, and Biomedical Engineering Society (USA).

Zernicke is the recipient of numerous achievement awards, most notably the NASA Cosmos Achievement Award awarded by the United SStates National Aeronautics and Space Administration, CIHR Partnership Award, Founders Award (Best Research) given by the Canadian Orthopaedic Research Society, and Alumnus of the Year from Concordia University Chicago.

In his leisure time, Zernicke enjoys reading, cross-country skiing, and hiking. He lives in Ann Arbor with his wife, Kathy.
