The purpose of this course is to introduce the student to the science and physiology behind strength training and conditioning. It also allows the student the opportunity to prepare for the National Strength and Conditioning Association's "Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist "(CSCS) certification. In general, the physiology of strength training and conditioning is poorly understood by the general public. Thus, part of the focus is to dispel some of the myths surrounding strength training by using sound physiology to understand mechanisms and responses. The course content involves scientific readings and lay application. Various topics relating to strength and resistance training will be discussed in detail including, energy expenditure power, nutrition, specificity, free vs machine weights, and the design of aerobic, anaerobic & resistance programs etc. NOTE: This course does not include the fee for sitting for the CSCS exam. You must register and take this exam outside of class. Course Objectives: Upon completion the student will:- 1. Understand the physiology of strength development and aerobic fitness. 2. Understand the body adaptation and change following a strength or aerobic fitness program. 3. Understand basic fitness program development. 4. Understand selected issues of safety associated with developing an exercise program. 5.
