Synopsis: Applied Anatomy and Biomechanics in Sport explains how "state of the art" advances in sports science can be used in coaching to achieve an optimal skill performance, either for the average performer or the elite athlete. This book focuses on the individual rather than the group coaching approach of the past. It is the first book of its type to systematically apply anatomy and biomechanics to sports coaching. The book is highly applied and concentrates on the ways in which the human body and an individual's technique can be modified to achieve optimal performance.
