Biomechanics

I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations on good biomechanics books?

Thanks

Re: Biomechanics

For lifting, Coach Rippetoe's Starting Strength has good explanations and diagrams of the forces and vectors in the standard lifts.

Re: Biomechanics

Im not sure really. Mainly I would like to educate myself further on what exactly is going on when I engage certain muscles in order to do certain lifts. A lot of terms are thrown around on the message boards that I am not familiar with and would like to be.

Thanks
