APPLIED BIOMECHANICS: CONCEPTS AND CONNECTIONS is comprehensive in coverage and focuses on making connections between biomechanics and other subdisciplines of Exercise Science. Because students taking the course may not be math or science oriented, the text begins with a qualitative, conceptual explanation and then moves to a mathematical one, including both qualitative and some mathematical examples. The text also includes a brief review of anatomy.
