    Course components can be delivered as printed products or online:

    • The text Designing Resistance Training Programs, Fourth Edition

    • Study guide

    • Continuing education exam

    Objectives:

    • Understand the science of resistance training and how to apply it in designing effective training programs.

    • Discuss general guidelines for any type of resistance training and the principles of exercise prescription.

    • Develop resistance training programs for women, children, and senior populations.

    • Develop individualized resistance training workouts to meet the needs of clients, athletes, and fitness participants.

    Designing Resistance Training Programs, Fourth Edition CE Course provides insight into the principles of resistance training and exercise prescription and examines the various types of strength training. It covers resistance training from a physiological perspective and includes an overview of how resistance training programs interact with the other conditioning components such as aerobic, interval, and flexibility training. Advanced training techniques, manipulation of training variables in a long-term resistance training program, and ways to plan rest into long-term training without compromising fitness or performance are explored.

    Based on a book by two of the world’s leading experts on strength training, Designing Resistance Training Programs, Fourth Edition CE Course presents information on the process of designing scientifically based resistance training programs, modifying and adapting programs to meet the needs of special populations, and understanding how designing programs works in the real world. The study guide contains a course syllabus and end-of-chapter learning activities to prepare students for the continuing education exam at the conclusion of the course.

    Audience

    A continuing education course for strength and conditioning professionals and coaches, athletic trainers, personal trainers, and health and fitness professionals.

    Steven J. Fleck, PhD, is an associate professor in health, exercise science, and sport management at the University of Wisconsin at Parkside. He earned a PhD in exercise physiology from Ohio State University in 1978. He has headed the physical conditioning program of the U.S. Olympic Committee; served as strength coach for the German Volleyball Association; and coached high school track, basketball, and football. Fleck is a former vice president of basic and applied research and the current president of the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA). He is a fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine (ACSM) and the NSCA. He was honored in 1991 as the NSCA Sport Scientist of the Year and received that organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award in 2005.

    William J. Kraemer, PhD, is a professor in the department of kinesiology in the Neag School of Education at the University of Connecticut. He holds joint appointments as a professor in the department of physiology and neurobiology and as a professor of medicine at the UConn Health School of Medicine Center on Aging. 

    He earned a PhD in physiology from the University of Wyoming in 1984. Kraemer held the John and Janice Fisher Endowed Chair in Exercise Physiology and was director of the Human Performance Laboratory and a professor at Ball State University from 1998 until June 2001. He also was a professor at the Indiana School of Medicine. At Pennsylvania State University, he was professor of applied physiology, director of research in the Center for Sports Medicine, associate director of the Center for Cell Research, and faculty member in the kinesiology department and the Noll Physiological Research Center.
