Using the ACE IFT® Model to Develop Muscular Training Periodization Plans

The ACE Integrated Fitness Training® (ACE IFT®) Model is a program design blueprint that has evolved with the needs of today’s exercise professionals and their clients. With an understanding of its Muscular Training component, you can use the ACE IFT® Model as a guide to develop safe and effective periodization plans that help your clients reach their muscular training goals.

In this video training, you will closely examine the Muscular Training component of the ACE IFT® Model and learn how to move through its phases. You will also learn how to plan out long-term exercise programs and gain your client’s trust by keeping them safe and educating them on the process.

Led by Michelle Leachman, CORE Health and Fitness and ACE Master Trainer who has been teaching and publishing research on human anatomy, physiology and exercise science, you will walk away with the skills to apply the ACE IFT® template to any client’s individual muscular training goals.

Upon completion, you will be able to:

• Leverage the phases of the Muscular Training component of the ACE IFT® Model

• Safely move a client from one phase to the next, progressing from functional to movement to load/speed training

• Understand long term application of the Muscular Training component phases and apply them to clients who have goals in this area

• Apply three separate training plans using the ACE IFT® Model’s Muscular Training component
