Product Format
    This package includes the following:
    • Lower Body Training book
    • Online continuing education exam
    Lower Body Training is a comprehensive guide containing the most up-to-date, scientifically proven strategies for increasing lower body size, strength, and power in your clients and athletes. Jason Brown, a program design expert who has worked with CrossFit affiliates and strength and conditioning facilities around the world, shares his innovative programs for a variety of different training goals, ranging from increased lower body size and strength to improved athletic performance.

    Lower Body Training offers dozens of options for developing all the muscles of the lower body. The exercises are organized by the movement patterns they target—quad dominant, hip dominant, isolation, and plyometric—and include variations based on the equipment available for your clients, without sacrificing results. You will also find recommendations for selecting a balance of exercises to maximize effectiveness and reduce lower back pain and other potential overuse or acute injuries.

    The book includes programs using maximal, submaximal, and dynamic training methods. The programs—categorized by beginner, intermediate, or advanced—target specific goals such as hypertrophy, strength, or athletic performance. Plus, there are variations for making staple exercises even more effective.

    After reading the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
