About the Author

Lon Kilgore is a faculty member at the University of the West of Scotland. He has also held faculty appointments at Midwestern State University, Kansas State University, Central Texas College, and Warnborough University. He graduated from Lincoln University with a Bachelor of Science in biology and earned a Ph.D. in Anatomy and Physiology from Kansas State University. He has competed in weightlifting to the national level since 1972 and coached his first athletes to national championship event medals in 1974. He has worked in-the-trenches as a coach or sports science consultant, with athletes from rank novices to professionals and the Olympic elite, and as a collegiate strength coach. His interest in developing better fitness professionals and in reducing the mass of exercise mythology has driven much of his academic and professional efforts. He was been a certifying instructor for USA Weightlifting for more than a decade and a frequent lecturer at events at the US Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs. His authorship, co-authorship, and illustration efforts include the new industry standards Starting Strength and Practical Programming, dozens of magazine columns framing the science of exercise for the average reader, and many research journal publications.

Anatomy without a scalpel is a great resource for any practitioner of barbell sports (really anyone at all) to get a firmer grasp on the in's and out's of human movement. It's focus on anatomy pertaining to exercise really shines through. In an industry rife with pseudo-science this book is a breath of fresh air. Well written in non-cryptic, to the point language both professional's and casual participant's can benefit from Kilgore's explanations and insights. If you want to train the body, or the body's of others, it helps to know how it works. This book makes that information available in one concise yet thorough package, geared specifically towards the lifter. Excellent addition to any training library!

I hate giving this a bad review because I enjoyed this book and it has a lot of very good content, but it is confusing at times because it has a lot of typos and errors. I'd hold out until the second edition when it is hopefully edited more carefully.

This is the book I wish I had in college. Written from the lifter's POV and in a language that makes sense to even a lay person. Great illustrations also.

This is an amazingly simple, and easy to understand dissection (hah!) of the subject of anatomy, as it relates to strength training. It gives you the tools to identify almost any major structure in the body by touch alone, and clearly describes the roles of different aspects of the muscular-skeletal system. If you've struggled with anatomy before, this book goes a long way to making it practical and useful.
