Body Leverage Training: No Equipment? No Problem!

Awaken a new dimension of training as you explore the research and practical applications of body leverage training. Walk away with the latest research on the best techniques to perform push-ups, core training, leg strength/plyometrics and partner resistance training. Then dive deeper into periodization using body leverage training for enhanced strength, power and endurance. Your clients will think you’re a rock star when you present them with a scorching workout using only body weight.

  1. Define what body leverage training is and how it can used to improve muscle fitness.
  2. Explain the physiological and neural adaptations that occur to make muscles stronger.
  3. Demonstrate how to change body positions to increase the resistance of body leverage training exercises in order to develop muscle strength, power and endurance.
  4. Categorize exercises into modified, hard and hardest to accommodate all different fitness levels.
  5. Describe and demonstrate how to use single-joint exercises, multiple-joint exercises, partner exercises and compound exercises in the development of a total body leverage training program.
  6. Design a body leverage training program using the multiple variations and modifications of positions and body parts that can be used to develop muscle strength, power and endurance.
