Strength Training Anatomy (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition): Frederic Delavier Strength Training Anatomy (Paperback, 3rd Revised edition)
Frederic Delavier 2
R406 R321 Discovery Miles 3 210 Save R85 (21%) In stock

Over 1 million copies sold With new exercises, additional stretches, and more of Frederic Delavier's signature illustrations, you'll gain a whole new understanding of how muscles perform during strength exercises. This one-of-a-kind best-seller combines the visual detail of top anatomy texts with the best of strength training advice.

Many books explain what muscles are used during exercise, but no other resource brings the anatomy to life like "Strength Training Anatomy." Over 600 full-color illustrations reveal the primary muscles worked along with all the relevant surrounding structures, including bones, ligaments, tendons, and connective tissue.

Like having an X-ray for each exercise, the anatomical depictions show both superficial and deep layers and detail how various setup positions affect muscle recruitment and emphasize underlying structures. New pages show common strength training injuries in a fascinating light and offer precautions to help you exercise safely.

Author and illustrator Frederic Delavier is the former editor in chief of the French publication "PowerMag." He is a journalist for "Le Monde du Muscle" and a contributor to "Men's Health Germany" and several other strength training publications.

Good to Go - What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery (Hardcover): Christie Aschwanden Good to Go - What the Athlete in All of Us Can Learn from the Strange Science of Recovery (Hardcover)
Christie Aschwanden
R508 R401 Discovery Miles 4 010 Save R107 (21%) Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

In recent years recovery has become a sports and fitness buzzword. Anyone who works out or competes at any level is bombarded with the latest recovery products and services: from drinks and shakes to compression sleeves, foam rollers, electrical muscle stimulators, and sleep trackers. In Good to Go, acclaimed FiveThirtyEight science writer Christie Aschwanden takes readers on an entertaining and enlightening tour through this strange world. She investigates whether drinking Gatorade or beer after training helps or hinders performance; she examines the latest trends among athletes, from NFL star Tom Brady's infrared pajamas to gymnast Simone Biles' pneumatic compression boots to swimmer Michael Phelps's "cupping" ritual; and she tests some of the most controversial methods herself, including cryochambers, float tanks, and infrared saunas. At a time when the latest recovery products and services promise so much, Good to Go seeks answers to the fundamental question: Do any of them actually help the body recover and achieve peak performance?

Muscle Energy Techniques is a must for any student in the field of sports therapy, osteopathy, physiotherapy, chiropractic, yoga, Pilates and functional anatomy, and will also appeal to anybody qualified in physical therapy. This practical guide, packed full of colour photographs, illustrates the theory and practice of muscle energy techniques (MET). The principles described can be incorporated very quickly and effectively into a treatment plan, and can be used to assist in the rehabilitation of anyone who is recovering from an injury. In particular, this book will provide the therapist with the underpinning knowledge of the specific anatomy of the postural muscles that can become dysfunctionally shortened. Author John Gibbons brings years of expertise - he lectures in the field of sports medicine and physical therapy and works with elite-level and Olympic athletes in a wide range of sporting disciplines. In the book he looks at the theory of MET and, once that has been understood, he takes you on a muscle energy technique 'journey'. After demonstrating functional assessment testing for the muscles of 'posture' that can become chronically tight and dysfunctional, he shows how to apply a specific MET to correct these dysfunctional muscles to restore normality. The book contains easy to follow 'postural muscle' tables that you can use to monitor the progress of your patients.

  • How can we predict the trajectory of a baseball from bat to outfield?
  • How do the dimples in a golf ball influence its flight from tee to pin?
  • What forces determine the path of a soccer ball steered over a defensive wall by an elite player?

An understanding of the physical processes involved in throwing, hitting, firing and releasing sporting projectiles is essential for a full understanding of the science that underpins sport. This is the first book to comprehensively examine those processes and to explain the factors governing the trajectories of sporting projectiles once they are set in motion.

From a serve in tennis to the flight of a ?human projectile? over a high jump bar, this book explains the universal physical and mathematical principles governing movement in sport, and then shows how those principles are applied in specific sporting contexts. Divided into two sections, addressing theory and application respectively, the book explores key concepts such as:

  • friction, spin, drag, impact and bounce
  • computer and mathematical modelling
  • variable sensitivity
  • the design of sports equipment
  • materials science.

Richly illustrated throughout, and containing a wealth of research data as well as worked equations and examples, this book is essential reading for all serious students of sports biomechanics, sports engineering, sports technology, sports equipment design and sports performance analysis.
