The Art and Science of Training: An Overview of Training, Muscles, and Periodization.

The Principles of Training and Program Design course will cover research topics, such as intensity and volume, as well as soft topics, like training philosophy. First we will discuss the importance of a training philosophy. We will look at leaders in the industry and how they program, and compare how this differs to other leaders with different philosophies. While philosophies are great, science must be addressed as well. We will then discuss the research regarding topics like interval training, warming up, stretching, strength training, volume, and more. Scientific knowledge backed by a personal philosophy of fitness will help trainers understand he “why” behind the “what” they do.
