The Concise Book of Muscles
Containing over thirty new muscles, this exciting new edition of "The Concise Book of Muscles" is a comprehensive guide to the six major muscle groups. Fully illustrated and easy to use, this compact reference guide provides a complete profile for each muscle, clearly showing its origin, insertion, action, and nerve supply, the movements that use it, and exercises and stretches that strengthen it. "The Concise Book of Muscles" shows students exactly how to locate and identify specific muscles, highlighting those that are heavily used and therefore subject to injury in a variety of sports and activities. While designed for the student and early practitioner of anatomy, massage/bodywork, physical therapy, chiropractic medicine, physiotherapy, or any other health-related field, "The Concise Book of Muscles" is equally useful for athletes and anyone interested in the workings of the human body.
