Taylor & Francis, 1996 - Sports & Recreation - 343 pages
Developed as a key resource for both lecturers and students of kinanthropometry, sports science, human movement and exercise physiology, this laboratory manual provides help with the planning and conduct of class practicals; comprehensive theoretical background for each topic so that the reader can easily place the subject in context without the need for extensive literature reviews; original laboratory practicals and suggestions for student activities; a chapter on statistical analysis which promotes the proper use of common statistical techniques for analysing data obtained on human subjects as well as helping to avoid common abuses of basic statistical tools; and self-standing chapters which are independent of each other enabling the reader to pick out topics of interest in any order.
