It addresses both the mechanical behavior of single muscles and the various issues of muscle functioning during human motion. A reference for biomechanists, motor development specialists, muscle physiologists, exercise and sport scientists, ergonomists, biomechanical and biomedical engineers, and rehabilitation specialists. A text for graduate-level courses in biomechanics.

Zatsiorsky, PhD, is a world-renowned expert in the biomechanics of human motion. He has been a professor in the department of kinesiology at Pennsylvania State University since and was a director of the university’s biomechanics laboratory. Before coming to North America inDr. Zatsiorsky served for 18 years as professor and chair of the department of biomechanics at the Central Institute of Physical Culture in Moscow. Prilutsky, PhD, is an associate professor in the School of Applied Physiology and director of biomechanics and motor control laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta, Georgia.

His research interests include muscle biomechanics, neural control of movements, and motor learning. His research contributed to the development of methods for quantifying mechanical energy transfer by two-joint muscles zatsiiorsky body segments during locomotion and to the understanding of muscle coordination during human motion.


Prilutsky has published more than 50 peer-reviewed research articles and five book chapters, and he is the author of six patents. From tohe worked as a research scientist and lecturer in the department of biomechanics for the Central Institute of Physical Culture in Moscow. He was also a postdoctoral fellow in the department of kinesiology at the University of Calgary, Alberta, Canadaand at the department of health and performance sciences at Georgia Tech Prilutsky resides in Duluth, Georgia, and enjoys mountain ztasiorsky, reading, and traveling in his free time.

In addition to the well-credentialed authors’ expertise, important peer-reviewed research is presented throughout the book.

When a fully activated muscle or a fiber is stretched with a moderate speed from one constant length to another, the force recorded on its end exceeds the maximum isometric force at the same muscle length.

Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles. By Biomechabics ZatsiorskyBoris Prilutsky. Richly illustrated and presented in clear, concise language, Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles is an essential resource for those seeking advanced knowledge of muscle biomechanics.

Written by leading experts Vladimir Zatsiorsky and Boris Prilutsky, the text is one of the few to look at muscle biomechanics in its entirety—from muscle fibers to muscle coordination—making it a unique contribution to the field. Using a blend of experimental evidence and mechanical models, Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles provides an explanation of whole muscle biomechanics at work in the body in motion.

The book first addresses the mechanical behavior of single muscles—from the sarcomere level up to the entire muscle. The architecture of human muscle, the mechanical properties of tendons and passive muscles, the biomechanics of active muscles, and the force transmission and shock absorption aspects of muscle are explored spoft detail. Next, the various issues of muscle functioning during human motion are addressed. The transformation from muscle force to joint movements, two-joint muscle function, eccentric muscle action, and muscle coordination are analyzed.

This advanced sporh assumes some knowledge of algebra and calculus; however, the emphasis is on understanding physical concepts. Higher-level computational descriptions are placed in special sections in the later chapters of the book, allowing those with a strong mathematical ij to explore this material in bionechanics detail.


Readers who choose to skip over these sections will find that the book still provides a strong conceptual understanding of advanced topics.

More than illustrations and accompanying explanations provide an extensive visual representation of muscle biomechanics. Refresher sidebars offer brief reminders of mathematical and biomechanical concepts, and Bipmechanics the Literature sidebars present practical examples that illustrate the concepts under discussion.

Chapter summaries and review questions provide an opportunity for reflection and self-testing, and reference lists at the end of each chapter provide a starting point for further study. Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles offers a thorough explanation of whole muscle biomechanics, bridging the gap between foundational biomechanics texts and scientific literature.

With the information found in this text, readers can prepare themselves to better understand the latest in cutting-edge research. The series begins zatsioesky Kinematics of Human Motion, which details human body positioning and movement in three dimensions; continues with Kinetics of Human Motion, which examines the forces that create body motion and their effects; and concludes with Biomechanics of Skeletal Muscles, which explains the action of the biological motors that exert force and produce mechanical work during human movement.
