Timing Resistance Training: Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance

Earn 10 Hours Credit! Approved in 46 states, 4 pending.

Modern research has taken the application of timing to exercise programming in a new direction, discovering the existence of muscle clocks inside each of the more than 600 skeletal muscles. In this course based upon the book Timing Resistance Training: Programming the Muscle Clock for Optimal Performance, you will learn what muscles clocks are, how they work, and how to use them to design effective resistance training programs that optimize muscle strength and power. Learn how to teach muscles to “think” by delivering the timing cues that tell them when to activate key physiological actions that will enhance performance. Discover which cues to use with contemporary training methods such as paired exercise, complex, and concurrent training. Learn how to manipulate muscle clocks to perform their best every day using principles such as intermittent rest and strategically timed single-session workouts, weekly workouts, and long-term programming routines. Course is appropriate for PTs and ATs.

New Resistance Training Guidelines for Women over 40

The course discusses new research on the relationship between estrogen loss and its effects on muscle satellite cells and muscle health in women over 40. Learners are shown how to design safe and effective resistance training routines to increase muscle mass and strength and improve body composition and appearance in women over 40. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

High-Intensity Training: How-To Program for Best Results and Avoid Overtraining

Attendees will learn how-to program high-intensity strength training workouts. Course examines the benefits of high-intensity training, common methods and how-to use them while maintaining a focus on the prevention of overtraining. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Strength Training for Different Populations

This course covers 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 client or patient. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Rest and Recovery: Best Practices to Maximize Muscle Strength

The course covers new research on how to use intra-set and between rest periods effectively during strength training. Also covers how to program intermittent rest (between day) and recovery periods to avoid overtraining and detraining. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Programming for Muscle Strength and Power Gains

This course is designed to show learners how to design strength and power development workout sessions and programs. Based on the latest research and trends in strength and power training, attendees will gain knowledge and skills to implement in workouts and programs immediately. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.

Combined Training: Evidence-Based Practice Strength and Conditioning Programming

Based on the latest muscle physiology research, discover how to develop strength and conditioning programs to account for interference theory along with recently discovered muscle clocks and the role that they play in muscle performance and rehabilitation outcomes. Packed with real-world clinical applications and sample routines, this course is designed with the working professional and immediate field application in mind and therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.
