Summary
"Athletic Ability and the Anatomy of Motion serves as a bridge between biomechanics and the practice of sport. By providing a detailed analysis of movement, Wirhed allows us to understand the factors important in maximizing performance and provides a firm theoretical framework for effective training." "The book covers the general characteristics of bones, joints and muscles and provides general guidelines for flexibility and strength training before tackling the anatomy and function of different parts of the body. The last section examines the types of movement important in sport."--Jacket
