The new 3rd edition of Anatomical Kinesiology has been designed to be used in conjunction with many introductory kinesiology courses and textbooks; hence specific muscle origins and insertions have been purposefully left out due to minor inconsistencies across many different text books.
- Keeps each exercise specific to one major joint and its muscles while always emphasizing general joint actions, proper anatomical terminology and how the lever system works in the human body.
- Includes two new laboratory exercises
- Emphasizes that redundancy is a key to learning joint actions, the muscles responsible for creating the actions and how the muscles created the actions ie: concentrically, eccentrically, or isometrically.
- Includes easily understood picture sets to facilitate class discussions using common weight room and sport activities.
