520    "Awareness of movement potential," says author Jo Ann 
       Staugaard-Jones, "is key to a healthy body and injury 
       prevention." The Anatomy of Exercise & Movement shows 
       readers how to gain that awareness by understanding the 
       biomechanics of movement. In ten chapters, color-coded for
       easy reference, the author covers all of the major muscle 
       and joint areas, including the spine; core region; 
       shoulder; elbow; wrist and hand; and hip, knee, and ankle/
       foot joints. Most importantly, each chapter contains 
       strengthening and stretching exercises for all of the 
       above areas. Developed as a handbook, The Anatomy of 
       Exercise & Movement is an accessible resource for anyone 
       who would like to know more about his or her body, how it 
       moves, and what can be done to improve that movement. The 
       more than 275 high-quality, four-color anatomical drawings
       and the broad scope of muscle and joint groups make this 
       one of the most important guides to the moving body on the
       market. A helpful "Myths" page at the end of each chapter 
       debunks many of the misunderstandings and rumors about 
       fitness that have circulated over the years"--|cProvided

       instruct dance, pilates, sports, and yoga will find this 
       book an essential tool that explains the mechanics behind 
       physical movement, recommends strengthening and stretching
       exercises, and helps avoid injury."--Provided by
