Anatomy of Movement - Exercises

Anatomy of Movement - Exercises

Blandine Calais-Germain Andrée Lamotte

The exercises were chosen on the basis of their effectiveness and with concern for their safety. Some are designed to focus on strengthening a particular region or muscle group, others the entire body. Each exercise prepares the body to respond well to the demands of particular movements. Together they serve as a basis for the more specialized movements associated with various physical disciplines and therapies.

For each body region the authors describe characteristic movements; potential sources of stiffness or laxity and how to detect, prevent and overcome them; how to strengthen specific muscles or muscle groups; and how to coordinate movements. This is followed by "practice pages" on which specific exercises are demonstrated.

JCM Review

"Anatomy of Movement and Anatomy of Movement: Exercises describe the bones, muscles and joints, how they move, how to exercise specific and coordinated parts--with illustrations, photos and text that make it comprehensible even to someone like me, who's taken nary a class in anatomy, physiology or kinesiology."

Molly Martin, Pacific Magazine

"For the client who asks for stretches or exercises to do, there is sure to be something appropriate [here], and the photographs simplify explanation. The practice pages and coordination exercises offer plenty of inspiration for movement sessions as well."
