This is one of the few books to look at the biomechanics of the whole muscle.
The programme contains presentations from leading international keynote speakers from the world of Performance Analysis
This text is one of the few to examine motor development models and theories
Guide children in developing lateral skills, balance, positive body image, tracking skills, spatial relations, locomotor and manipulative skills
…examines the development of movement skill from infancy to adulthood and how differing motor, cognitive and social abilities affect when, why and how an individual learns motor skills.
The Athlete’s Clock reveals how the central nervous system dictates how fast an athlete runs, how the complex sequence of muscle activation and its tempo can be tuned for optimal performance and how athletes can use their biological clocks to their advantage.
These stories offer concrete examples of how motor behaviour, motor control, and perception and action errors affect the lives of both well-known and ordinary individuals in various situations and environments.
This outstanding introduction to the field, focuses on those aspects of motor behaviour that can be observed directly as well as the many factors that affect the quality of these performances and the ease with which they can be learned.
