Comment: PROFESSIONAL SELLER SHIPPING TOP QUALITY BOOKS WITHIN 24 HOURS.100% MONEY BACK GUARANTEE Well-loved but cared for, and still very readable. The previous owner has certainly very much enjoyed reading this book more than once, therefore please be aware there will be some creasing on the spine or slight shelf wear. If it's been in their collection for some time, say years old or more, some pages might be discoloured and there may be other minor age blemishes, but that won't affect its readability. Shipped from the heart of the British countryside this book will leave our library within a day or two of your order and be with you shortly thereafter.

Product description


The student-friendly fourth edition expands on the fundamentals of motor performance and learning, providing valuable supporting literature and current research results in an accessible and engaging format.This text goes beyond simply presenting the latest research. Instead, the authors challenge students not only to grasp but also to apply the fundamental concepts of motor performance and learning via a unique situation-based approach.By working through situation-based exercises and case studies, students learn how to ask appropriate questions, identify solutions and support their answers with theory or research.More than 76 new references, exercises, updates figures and photos and improved chapter features makes the fourth edition the most user-friendly edition to date.Each chapter is organised to include an outline listing the major topics to be presented, objectives that alert students to key content for mastery, an opening case study that previews the content within the context of a real-life example and research highlight boxes to provide more detailed descriptions of important experiments and concepts.

Also included is a running glossary for instant definitions of terms as they are introduced in the text.
