This page gives you an introduction to live events for professionals, including:
During live events, here’s what you can expect from me:
I have spent my life in gyms and athletic training centers. With over 30 years of industry and academic sports sciences experience focused on muscle performance, I now devote my time to performance programming, authoring books, continuing education programs, and delivering live seminars and webinars.
My favorite aspect of the field is resistance training programming methods. Why programming? It is where I can help others and best support the work of muscle performance experts. Over the years I learned that it is the intricate relationship between programming variables that excite me, and I love coming up with programming solutions to optimize performance outcomes. Programming is in the details and that is what I love! My motto is this:
“Programming is an intricate puzzle of infinite possibilities and details interacting with a human being – a dynamic, changing system.”
~ Dr. Amy
Speaking and lecturing since 1993, I have delivered hundreds of live events to academia and industry. With dozens of magazine and blog publications and three books reaching a global audience of over 500,000 people in 80 plus countries, I am honored to touch people through muscle performance research and development.
Timing Resistance Training
Based on the book, Timing Resistance Training: Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance this seminar discusses the new science of muscle clocks. Participants are shown how to develop muscle size, strength, and power using:
Combined Training: Evidence-Based Practice Strength and Conditioning Programming shows participants how to build strength sessions to account for interference theory – muscle confusion at the molecular level. Packed with real world applications and sample routines, participants who finish this course will be able to:
Earn .5 CEs – 5 contact hours. Approved through the National Strength & Conditioning Association (NSCA) for continuing education (CE) units for the following specialty certifications:
Note: this course is also approved through the Board of Certification (BOC) and the Collegiate Strength & Conditioning Coaches Association (CSCCa).
Rest and Recovery: Best Practices to Maximize Muscle Strength
This focused course covers new research on how to use intra-set and between set rest periods effectively during strength training. Also covers how to use intermittent rest (between day) and recovery periods to avoid overtraining and detraining.
Differentiated Strength Programming
This course shows participants how to design strength training workouts and programs for different populations with different abilities and goals. Based on recent research and using sample routines, attendees learn how to build safe and effective strength training programs for any athlete, client or patient.
“I have been privileged to have a professional association with Dr. Ashmore for the past 10 years, during which time she has impressed me with her unique ability to effectively bridge the gap between the scientist and the practitioner.”
Cedric X. Bryant, PhD, President and Chief Science Officer, American Council on Exercise
“Amy Ashmore is a superb educator, whose enthusiasm for her subject matter bubbles over and reaches everyone in a room. Amy has been writing and presenting for IDEA since 2002. She can get a fitness professional audience more engaged in the topics of biomechanics and physics than you could ever dream possible! She is an intelligent professional and creative teacher, as well as a generous and delightful human being.”
Sandy Todd Webster, Editor in Chief at IDEA Health & Fitness Association
