PED 4334 - Science of Resistance Training

Credits: 3 hrs
This course provides an in-depth study of skeletal muscle physiology and the cardiovascular, metabolic and neuromuscular adaptations to resistance exercise training. Exercise prescriptions for strength and endurance performance are emphasized. Students are prepared to attempt the National Strength and Conditioning Association’s certification exam. The class will focus on resistance training systems, basic principles of resistance training and benefits of resistance training. Although this is primarily a lecture-based course concentrating on the theoretical principles of resistance training, students will learn proper lifting and spotting techniques. Prerequisite(s): PED 3321 Exercise Physiology, PED 3411 Kinesiology.
