Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise – Peter Merton McGinnis – Google Books

Read, highlight, and take notes, across web, tablet, and phone. By providing mechanics before functional anatomy, the book helps students understand forces and their effects before studying how body structures deal with forces. Students will learn to appreciate the consequences of external forces, how the body generates internal forces to maintain position, and how forces create movement in physical activities.

Rather than presenting the principles as isolated and abstract, the text enables students to exercisw the principles of biomechanics for themselves through observation. By examining ordinary activities firsthand, students will develop meaningful explanations resulting in a deeper understanding of the underlying mechanical concepts. This practical approach combines striking visual elements with clear and concise language to encourage active sprt and improved comprehension.

Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise

This updated edition maintains the organization and features that made previous editions user friendly, such as a quick reference guide of frequently used equations printed on the inside cover and review questions at the end of each chapter to biomechhanics students’ understanding of important concepts.


The third edition also incorporates new features to facilitate learning:. The web resource includes all of the problems from the book, separated by chapter, plus 18 sample problems that guide students step by step through the process of solving.

MaxTRAQ Educational 2D software enables biomeechanics to analyze and quantify real-world sport movements in video clips and upload their own video content for analysis. The software supplements the final section of the text that bridges the concepts of internal and external forces with the application of biomechanics; it also provides an overview of the technology used in conducting quantitative biomechanical analyses.

Access to both online resources is included with new print books. To purchase the biomechanicx separately, click on the web resource under “Related Products” in the right column.

Instructors will benefit from an updated ancillary package. An instructor guide outlines each chapter and offers step-by-step solutions to the quantitative problems presented, as well as sample lecture topics, student activities, and teaching tips. A test package makes it spodt to prepare quizzes and tests, and an image bank contains most of the figures and tables from the text for use in developing course presentations.

Biomechanics of Sport and Exercise, Third Editionis ideal for those needing a deeper understanding of biomechanics from a qualitative perspective.

Thoroughly updated and expanded, this text makes the biomechanics of physical activity easy to understand and apply.


McGinnis was an assistant professor in the department of kinesiology at the University of Northern Colorado. During that time he served as a sport biomechanist in the Sports Science Division of the U. Olympic Committee in Colorado Springs, where he conducted applied sport biomechanics research, tested athletes, taught biomechanics courses to coaches, and developed educational materials for coaches.

As a member of the American Society of Testing Materials, he serves as chair of the pole vault equipment subcommittee and the task group on pole vault helmets.
