This second edition of Fundamentals of Biomechanics presents a clear, conceptual approach to understanding biomechanics within the context of the qualitative analysis of human movement. It provides real-world examples of the application of biomechanics in several ways. Human movement examples and problems are discussed to help teach biomechanical variables and concepts. This text, however, goes beyond this physics class with sport example approach. First, nine principles of biomechanics are developed to link theoretical knowledge with practical/professional principles and application. These nine generic application principles are based on the laws and concepts of biomechanics, so they can be applied to all human movements. Second, the last section of the book develops the application of biomechanics in qualitative analysis of several movements in four professional areas: physical education, coaching, strength and conditioning, and sports medicine.

Dr. Duane Knudson is University Distinguished Professor of biomechanics in the Department of Health and Human Performance at Texas State University. He earned his Ph.D. in biomechanics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and has published extensively on the biomechanics of tennis.exercise, stretching, and learning biomechanical concepts. He has published over 140 peer-reviewed articles, 22 chapters, and four books. He has been elected fellow of four scholarly societies (FNAK, FISBS, FACSM, RFSA) and received regional and national awards for his research.
