Book Description

Kinanthropometry is the study of human body size, shape and form and how those characteristics relate to human movement and sporting performance. In this fully updated and revised edition of the classic guide to kinathropometric theory and practice, leading international sport and exercise scientists offer a clear and comprehensive introduction to essential principles and techniques.

Each chapter guides the reader through the planning and conduct of practical and laboratory sessions and includes a survey of current theory and contemporary literature relating to that topic. The book is fully illustrated and includes worked examples, exercises, research data, chapter summaries and guides to further reading throughout.

Divided into two volumes, addressing anthropometry and exercise physiology respectively, the Kinathropometry and Exercise Physiology Laboratory Manual is essential reading for all serious students and researchers working in sport and exercise science, kinesiology and human movement.
