The Treadmill Kinematics experiment is the first rigorous investigation to quantify the biomechanics of treadmill exercise conditions during long duration space flight on the ISS. Exercise prescriptions are developed under the assumption that walking and running in microgravity have the same training effects as during normal gravity. However, if locomotion kinematics and kinetics differ between microgravity and normal gravity, understanding these mechanisms allows the development of appropriate exercise prescriptions to increase exercise benefits to crew health and well-being.
After two decades of acclaim for his book, Kinesiology of Exercise, Dr. Yessis finally brings us the revised edition: Biomechanics and Kinesiology of Exercise. In Biomechanics and Kinesiology of Exercise, Dr. Yessis provides even more detailed content and greatly expands on the biomechanical considerations of exercise. In turn, by adding explanations and descriptions about many of the kinesiological aspects surrounding movement, Dr. Yessis offers an even more complete and in depth view of each exercise. The book also includes new exercises and more information on his training program, especially for teen and collegiate athletes.
Biomechanics and Kinesiology of Exercise is the second edition of Kinesiology of Exercise, a best-selling book for the past twenty years. It is has been greatly expanded with the addition of the biomechanical aspects of exercise and new exercises that have been developed over the last decade. The training program, especially when training for strength, has been greatly expanded with new concepts that have proven to be extremely successful in practice.
