Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy Online CE Course
Course components are delivered online:
• Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy e-book
• Study guide
• Continuing education exam
At the completion of this course, you will be able to do the following:
• Understand the structure and function of the neuromuscular system.
• Describe the program design variables for maximizing muscle hypertrophy.
• Explain how biomechanics is related to muscle hypertrophy training.
• Identify exercise selection strategies.
• Explain the relationship between nutrition and muscle hypertrophy.
Although muscle hypertrophy can be attained through a range of training programs, Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy Online CE Course allows learners to understand and apply the specific responses and mechanisms that promote optimal muscle hypertrophy in their clients. It explores how genetic background, age, sex, and other factors have been shown to mediate the hypertrophic response to exercise, affecting both the rate and the total gain in lean muscle mass. Sample programs show how to design a three- or four-day-per-week undulating periodized program and a modified linear periodized program for maximizing muscular development.
Built around a book by Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, a leading authority on muscle hypertrophy, this course provides strength and conditioning professionals as well as personal trainers with a definitive resource for information regarding muscle hypertrophy—the mechanism of its development, how the body structurally and hormonally changes when exposed to stress, ways to most effectively design training programs, and current nutrition guidelines for eliciting hypertrophic changes. The full-color content offers several features such as these:
• Research Findings highlight the aspects of muscle hypertrophy currently being examined to encourage learners to re-evaluate their knowledge and ensure their training practices are up to date.
• Practical Applications outline how to apply the research conclusions for maximal hypertrophic development.
• Comprehensive subject and author indexes optimize the book component’s utility as a reference tool beyond completion of the course.
The study guide includes a course syllabus, learning objectives, learning activities, and referenced answer key. The study guide emphasizes key concepts of the book to prepare individuals to pass the 100-question exam composed of multiple-choice and true-or-false questions at the completion of the course. Upon passing the exam, individuals may print out and submit a certificate for continuing education credits.
Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy Online CE Course is an invaluable resource for strength and conditioning professionals seeking to help clients maximize hypertrophic gains and those searching for the most comprehensive, authoritative, and current research in the field.
