Design 2nd Edition Manual + DVD
Exercise is like a drug; given in the right quantities at the right time, it can help a person. In the wrong quantities at the wrong time it can hurt the same person. A key skill for any fitness professional is being able to design individualized exercise programs that will lead to optimal performance for all types of clients; this correspondence course is designed to teach you to do just that! You will learn how to combine and manipulate acute exercise variables; not just reps and sets, but also loads, tempo and rest periods. Periodization concepts are covered and case histories are used as illustrations, bringing real-life examples to help you understand these critical factors. Move far beyond the “one-program-fits-all” approach and develop an in-depth understanding of how to use the science of selecting acute exercise variables to create effective programs for all your clients.
