Anatomy of Exercise and Movement - for Exercise Professionals
This course text is designed to provide a comprehensive understanding of the biomechanics of movement.
The ten color-coded sections cover all of the major muscle and joint areas, including the spine; core region; shoulder; elbow; wrist and hand; and hip, knee, and ankle/foot joints.
Each section includes highly detailed strengthening and stretching exercises for all of the above areas.
The easy reference format includes more than 275 high-quality, full-color anatomical drawings. A helpful “Myths” page at the end of each section helps to debunk many of the common misunderstandings and rumors about fitness and movement that have circulated over the years.
