Each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a  comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and  assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning  analytics reporting tools. Anatomical Kinesiology provides students with  a comprehensive and concise resource for mastering the muscles and  related anatomy responsible for body movement. This is a foundational  topic needed for application to other important areas including  biomechanics, musculoskeletal injuries, rehabilitation, strength and  conditioning, and more. The text uses 18 chapters divided across five  sections to cover all the material. Section I has four chapters that  present the anatomy and physiology concepts most relevant to kinesiology  such as body orientation; terminology; and the skeletal, muscular, and  nervous organ systems. Section II is divided into three chapters on the  bones and their landmarks. The final three sections contain the muscle  chapters: One section for the lower extremities, one for the axial  skeleton, and one for the upper extremities. The chapters are divided by  regions (i.e. ankle, knee, shoulder, etc.). A perforated workbook can  be found at the end of the text providing students with review questions  and study material that will help readers memorize and understand the  function of various bones and muscles of the body.
