The book Action Anatomy by Takashi Iijima provides details on the proportions of human bodies as well as how they move. The target audience is digital artists, so all the images in the book are illustrated digitally. You certainly do not have to be a digital artist to find this book useful, especially if you are looking for a reference to help you draw figures in action. This book covers a variety of topics, including how anatomy differences across age and gender, how bones and muscles affect the way a person moves, as well as the angle of movement of each joint. It is not intended to be an anatomy textbook or a digital rendering guide, so you would have to go to additional resources for the fine details. Available on Amazon.com for $19.77.
