Drawing on the expertise of 31 international researchers in biomechanics, exercise physiology, and motor behavior, Biomechanics and Biology of Movement provides an integrated, multidisciplinary, scientific approach to understanding human movement. As a text, it uses an integrated scientific approach to explore solutions to problems in human movement. As a complete reference volume, it provides an overview of how energy and work, balance and control, load factors, fatigue, and exercise interact to affect performance.

Edited by three renowned specialists in the field—Benno M. Nigg, Brian R. MacIntosh, and Joachim Mester—the text contains over 130 mathematical equations to illustrate and increase understanding of its concepts. The editors defined the important components of topics such as work and energy, balance and motor control, load and excessive load, and fatigue and invited world-renowned experts in these areas to contribute from their viewpoints.

Following an introduction highlighting the necessity of an interdisciplinary approach incorporating biology, biomechanics, biochemistry, physics, physiology, and other sciences, Biomechanics and Biology of Movement provides a four-part approach to problem solving arising from various movement, exercise, and sport sciences.

Whatever your situation—biomechanist, physiologist, therapist, trainer, or student—Biomechanics and Biology of Movement offers you a thorough overview of biomechanics, exercise physiology, and motor behavior; how they impact human movement; and how an increased appreciation of their importance can enhance performance.
