Do you have clients who want to lose weight or improve their performance in a specific sport or activity?  Traditional training programs focus on isolation exercises that emphasize the concentric phase of muscle action, but that approach may not provide the results your clients want. Strength and power training that emphasize the eccentric phase of muscle action are effective for providing numerous benefits, yet many times are misused in a way that may cause injury. In this webinar led by ACE Senior Fitness Consultant Chris McGrath, you’ll learn how to use strength and power training to produce positive results among the nervous, muscular and endocrine systems, and strategies for developing safe and challenging workout programs. 

You will learn:

  • Physiology surrounding how the human body adapts to strength and power-based exercises
  • To create effective exercise programs that help clients achieve fitness goals related to strength and power training 
  • Long-term exercise program design that incorporates appropriate training volume, consistent progression and adequate recovery
  • Effects of exercise on the endocrine system, and how it produces a muscle-building, anabolic state in the body
