    Hello,

    im interested in learning more about the whole energy system, how body works in terms of muscles, stretches, strength ect. i didn't find anything in google, i would like to read a book that is on actual standards and isn't to difficult to understand, i don't understand alot about Biomechanic or sports science, (specific stuff) would like to start to study Biomechanic or sports in about 2 years.

    Any recommendations for a good book to read ?

    Thanks Candytree

    If you think this is called "body philosophy", you should probably start with some high school science books.

    To be honest, wikipedia is a good place to start for general terminology and to find other references.

    "ProbodX" It will change your thought about athletic ability and performance. The diet and workout will change your athletic performance like nothing else can.

    I was serious about the Wiki link. The science articles there usually provide a decent introduction to a topic.

    However, I was also serious about the high school science books.

    Some more Wiki articles:

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muscle
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Exercise_physiology
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Classical_mechanics
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Statistics
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kinesiology
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cell_biology
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chemical_reaction
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neuroscience

    EDIT

    How about this book:

    I just wanted to be in before someone else shit on wikipedia. There are some wack articles (usually edited by the subject of the article in the case of real people) but I've found them to be a great introduction to many topics, especially for learning vocabulary in context.

    The people who complain about Wikipedia are usually the plebs who only read articles about celebrities.

    I find people who shit on wikipedia are snobs who've never really looked into the topic, and never looked at a technical article on the site. When I have seen technical articles where I know something about the subject I have found them to be good. And I have heard of studies of the accuracy of wikipedia relative to traditional encyclopedias which found the two to be of broadly similar levels of accuracy.

    If nutrition is included in your definition of Body Philosophy, I highly recommend The Renaissance Diet. It has everything you need to know about nutrition, in very simple terms.

    Y'know, why not give TS the benefit of the doubt, given that his location is Germany, and English might be his second language, and not worry about probably mixing up "philosophy" and "physiology".

    I actually didn't notice he's from Germany.


    Here are two books on the topic I've read. They provide a good introduction:

    http://www.amazon.de/Sportanatomie-Thorsten-Gehrke/dp/3868200134/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421032967&sr=1-1&keywords=sportanatomie

    http://www.amazon.de/Sportmedizin-Physiologische-Grundlagen-Peter-Markworth/dp/3499170493/ref=sr_1_6?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421032980&sr=1-6&keywords=sportphysiologie


    Here's a good biology textbook:

    http://www.amazon.de/LINDER-Biologie-SII-Auflage-Gesamtband/dp/3507109301/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1421033164&sr=1-1&keywords=linder+biologie


    Tell us a little more about your plans. That way we can recommend you literature more specifically.

    Also, what level do you have in:
    - Math
    - Physics
    - Chemistry
    - Biology
    - English
    ?

    I want to punch someone in the face every time I mention wikipedia and they immediately write it off and start telling me about their college essays and scholarly sources. They never forget to tell me, "anyone can edit wikipedia, bro." Wikipedia is the shit.

    Any college instructor who's hip to the kids of today and the internet in general will recommend students check Wikipedia, but to never use it as a source in a paper.
