Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles, Hardback Book


"Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles" is an essential resource for those seeking advanced knowledge of muscle biomechanics, particularly as it is one of the few books to look at the biomechanics of the whole muscle.

This text is advanced and assumes some knowledge of algebra and calculus, however the emphasis is on understanding physical concepts.

Readers who choose to skip over the higher level computations will find that the book still provides a strong conceptual understanding of advanced topics. "Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles" also contains over 300 detailed illustrations and a host of special features designed to facilitate a clear understanding of the topics presented.

The book offers a thorough and clear explanation of whole muscle biomechanics, bridging the gap between foundational biomechanics texts and scientific literature.
