Professional’s Rob Panariello, Tim Stump, Dean Maddalone, and Jessica Paparella have joined with Dr. Brian Cole, head team physician for the Chicago Bulls and co-team physician for the Chicago White Sox, to present important information on athletic performance and injury prevention in Human Kinetics’ book Basketball Anatomy.
See what it takes to maximize on-court power, strength, agility, and quickness. Basketball Anatomy will show you how to improve performance by increasing muscular strength and optimizing the efficiency of every movement.
Basketball Anatomy features 88 of the most effective basketball exercises, each with step-by-step descriptions and full-color anatomical illustrations to show the muscles in action.
Basketball Anatomy goes beyond the exercises by placing you on the court and into the throes of competition. Illustrations of the muscles involved in pivoting, rebounding, and shooting show you the exercises are fundamentally linked to basketball performance.
You’ll also step off the court and into the training room to explore the anatomy of the most common injuries to the ankle, knee, and shoulder as well as exercises for minimizing and recovering from such setbacks.
Basketball Anatomy is a must-have for all who appreciate the artistry and athleticism of the game — whether player, coach, trainer, or spectator.
“Basketball Anatomy is one of the few books that captures the beauty and athleticism of our sport. Dr. Brian Cole understands what players go through to perform at their best. It’s a book I recommend.”
