Physiological adaptations to resistance training, with a primary focus given to the neuromuscular system. Functional and structural changes that occur in skeletal muscle following strength and power training. Programmatic concerns when developing a resistance training regimen for an athletic population.
Course Learning Objectives – Upon completion of the course, students will: • demonstrate an understanding of the physiology of resistance training for fitness, health and athletic performance • demonstrate an understanding of how resistance training program variables are manipulated in order to accomplish a specific biological and/or performance outcome • design a yearlong resistance training program for a hypothetical sport population. • describe the effects that various ergogenic aids have on exercise performance, as well as delineate which of these aids are legal versus illegal for use in sport.
