If your facility is low on available equipment, or you simply don't have the room for all the tools most trainers use with their at-home, in-club and corporate clients, you can still design effective programs using only body weight as resistance. Come get the facts on the many advantages to body-weight training, as well as information on limiting factors, proper progression, maintaining standards and preventing injury. All trainers need to be able to offer a wide array of body-weight-only resistance training options.
- Differentiate between a traditional approach to exercise program design and that of an integrated approach.
- Understand how to manipulate acute variables to achieve specific neuromuscular adaptations (stabilization, strength, power).
- Design an integrated exercise program based on using only your own bodyweight.
- Design an integrated exercise program basedon using only your partner's bodyweight.
