The strength training information and exercise guidelines are 100% consistent with the ACE Youth Fitness book, the ACE Youth Strength Training book, and the ACE Youth Fitness Manual authored by Drs. Faigenbaum and Westcott. The emphasis of this course is the design and development of safe and successful youth strength training programs that are effective for improving body composition, increasing muscle strength, and enhancing physical performance.
