The two volumes contained in this set have been developed as a key resource for both students and lecturers of kinanthropometry, sports science, human movement, coaching studies and exercise physiology.
Fully revised, it provides help and guidance in the planning and conduct of a compendium of practical work.
The new edition includes fully updated and expanded contributions which appeared in the first edition with seven additional contributions.
As with the first edition, the contents are oriented towards laboratory practicals but offer more than a series of laboratory exercises.
A comprehensive theoretical background is provided for each topic so that there should be no need for additional reading for the subject to obtain up-to-date information to put the subject into context.
A one-stop resource, these books present laboratory procedures next to real-life practical examples with appropriate data.
Together the contributions represent a collective set of exercises and reading
material for a comprehensive programme in kinathropometry.
