An award-winning textbook revealing the inner workings of the body in motion. Join author Andrew Biel on a unique and fascinating journey as he helps you build — step by step — a human body in motion!
Instead of dissecting the body into smaller, isolated pieces, Trail Guide to Movement takes the unique approach of building the body into larger, interconnected components. This award-winning textbook is written with the same encouraging voice and subtle humor as the iconic Trail Guide to the Body, making the study of human movement easy to understand, captivating, and memorable. And, to reinforce your knowledge, you'll find over 100 review questions in the back of the book.
The journey in this book begins by designing four key structures for movement: connective tissue, joints, muscles, and nerves. Then, after applying some bio-mechanical principles, the reader puts the body to the test by exploring the concepts of posture and gait. With the purchase of Trail Guide to Movement, students automatically gain free access to videos that augment lessons found in the text.
