Description:


Most coaches are reluctant to study sport mechanics; from experience they equate it with boring texts loaded with formulas, calculations, and scientific terminology. That's not the case with "Sport Mechanics for Coaches." This updated third edition provides an introductory look at the mechanics of sport in a manner that's understandable and usable for the novices in the field.

Author Brendan Burkett--Paralympic gold medalist and world-record holder--pours his love of sport and his expertise as an award-winning engineer and biomechanics professor into this enhanced, revised, and reformatted text. Divided into three parts covering the fundamentals of sport mechanics, mechanical principles, and application of the knowledge to sport contexts, this text highlights real-life sporting achievements and the mechanics behind them.
