In Anatomy Without a Scalpel, the author, the coach, the scientist, the athlete, and the illustrator - all the voices presented - are all one person. This nexus results in a unique presentation of anatomy applied to exercising humans. This book is not written for academics, it is written for anyone who wants to learn anatomy and its application to sport and exercise in as painless a way as possible. The book is a collection of the authors thoughts, observations, notes, sketches, photographs, and lecture materials sewn together into a treatment of exercise anatomy for everyone, it speaks equally to the trainer and the trainee. The first section of the book lays out basic principles of anatomy and learning anatomy, as it relates to exercise performance and coaching. In those pages many concepts that are not taught in generic university anatomy & physiology courses or in PE based kinesiology courses are presented. The second section delivers, from the ground up, a tour of the the bones, joints, muscles, and other structures important to the human at work and play. Each chapter has integrated discussions of related topics - everything from the anatomical interface of the foot and shoe to the anatomy of a concussion. When you finish this book, you will be able to find things, you will be able to explain things, and you will be a better trainee or trainer.

About the Author:

Lon Kilgore is a faculty member at the University of the West of Scotland. He has also held faculty appointments at Midwestern State University, Kansas State University, Central Texas College, and Warnborough University. He graduated from Lincoln University with a Bachelor of Science in biology and earned a Ph.D. in Anatomy and Physiology from Kansas State University. He has competed in weightlifting to the national level since 1972 and coached his first athletes to national championship event medals in 1974. He has worked in-the-trenches as a coach or sports science consultant, with athletes from rank novices to professionals and the Olympic elite, and as a collegiate strength coach. His interest in developing better fitness professionals and in reducing the mass of exercise mythology has driven much of his academic and professional efforts. He was been a certifying instructor for USA Weightlifting for more than a decade and a frequent lecturer at events at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. His authorship, co-authorship, and illustration efforts include the new industry standards Starting Strength and Practical Programming, dozens of magazine columns framing the science of exercise for the average reader, and many research journal publications.
