Applied Sport Mechanics, 4th Edition helps students understand how the fundamental laws of human movement can affect an athlete's performance.
It explores the basic principles of kinetics, kinematics and sports technique through a variety of applied scenarios.
Split into two parts, the first section focuses on the fundamentals of sport mechanics.
Major topics covered include the anatomy of sport mechanics, linear motion and kinetics in sport and moving through fluids.
The second part of the book helps students apply the information they learnt in Part I.
Students are taught how to break a skill into phases and what to look forin each phase.
They also learn the mechanical principles to help them correct any errors.
Formerly titled Sport Mechanics for Coaches this guide builds on the success of its previous editions.
New material includes a web study guide, updated pedagogical aids, visual aids, reorganised content and expanded sidebars.
