Fitness Professionals' Guide to Musculoskeletal Anatomy and Human Movement is a revolution in the field of human movement. Comprehensive and meticulous, this ground-breaking text is ideal for college courses and a must for any fitness professional. For each muscle in the body, the book includes a detailed illustration that uses color to highlight the muscle. Along with the illustrations, you'll find a brief description of each muscle as well as information on its joint crossings, associated body actions, blood supply, controlling nerves, and insertion and origin.
The accompanying CD-ROM is one-of-a-kind. Developed specifically as a companion to this text, the intuitive and easy-to-use PC CD-ROM applies each of the muscles and body actions described in the book to neatly 300 specific exercises. Each exercise is shown in full-motion video and demonstrated in repeatable, correct form, with complete descriptions, step-by-step instructions and a list of the body actions used to perform each exercise. By double clicking on any of the 65 body actions, you'll get alist of each muscle used in that action. Double-click aon any of the muscles in the list, and you'll be presented with the same detailed information about that muscle as you'll find in the book. In addition, the CD enables you to view a printable, full-color image of the muscle that you can magnify and isolate from the surrounding muscles. It even gives you an audio clip of the correct pronunciation.
Another feature of the CD allows you to view over 100 movement related activities, from a field hockey backhand to gardening to rowing a canoe, with corresponding body actions and the same couble-click to live action footage andmusculoskeletal detail provided for the the 300 exercises.
The CD allows you to print sixteen different skeleton illustrations for use in muscle placement exercises. It also contains 20 multiple-choice quizzes on various nomenclatures, actions and attachements; these can be taken electronically and scored instantly or printed for use in classroom exercises.
