Biomechanics and Kinesiology Book

  • Do you feel lost when you walk into the free weight section of the gym?
  • How would you like to strengthen yourself and prevent injury at the same time?
  • Is “no pain, no gain” your mantra?
  • Do you get frustrated when your exercises do not improve your sports performance?
  • Are you sure that the exercise you select will develop the muscle you want?

Biomechanics and Kinesiology of Exercise is the second edition of Kinesiology of Exercise, a best-selling book for the past twenty years. It is has been greatly expanded with the addition of the biomechanical aspects of exercise and new exercises that have been developed over the last decade. The training program, especially when training for strength, has been greatly expanded with new concepts that have proven to be extremely successful in practice.

This is one of the most recognized books that contains elements of biomechanics with kinesiology when describing, analyzing and discussing the similarities and differences between various strength exercises.  They are explained in great detail, accompanied with illustrations.

Each exercise description includes the muscles involved, the sports for which it is best suitable and a detailed explanation of exercise execution.

The exercises are described specific to the joints that they affect, not just body areas. As a result you will have a better understanding of how the strength exercises relate to specific body areas. This allows for more precise discrimination when selecting exercises for specific actions or body areas.

Biomechanics and Kinesiology of Exercise can serve as a great textbook for kinesiology students when discussing muscle anatomy and participation of the muscles in various strength exercises.

One Review for Biomechanics and Kinesiology Book

  1. Shea Thompson says:

    A great book for anyone wanting to know how to teach exercises correctly. Don’t be fooled by the simplicity of the breakdown. All of these exercises have been examined by biomechanics expert Dr. Yessis.

    The program design in the back allows for easy application when beginning anyone in a training program and then teaches you how to progress them properly. Follow the detail in the technique, with the simplicity of the program and create great foundation for further training. I have used the techniques from the book on myself and have seen some crazy results!
