Written for undergraduate biomechanics courses, Applied Biomechanics: Concepts and Connections, Second Edition is a comprehensive resource that focuses on making connections between biomechanics and other subdisciplines of exercise science. With that in mind, each chapter contains a Concepts section and a Connections section. The Concepts are the core nuts and bolts of understanding the mechanics of movement. The Connections are designed to show how the Concepts are used in the many diverse areas within the movement sciences.

The Second Edition was written to meet the needs of students who aspire to any field of human movement or performance, making the concepts of biomechanics relevant no matter their ultimate choice of profession.
