Students learn the biomechanics of resistance exercise training, analyze
safety issues for injury prevention, develop a strong command on how to build
progressions and regressions, master the principles of functional training
(e.g. core training) and measure skeletal muscle strength and endurance. The
most prominent feature of this third section is the detailed functional
analysis of all exercises performed with various forms of resistance (e.g.
weights, kettlebells, suspension training, medicine ball, ropes etc.) and are
performed in a functional or isolated context. Special emphasis is placed on
various methodologies related to resistance training (e.g. eccentrics etc.).
Students also learn how to perform needs analysis for either an athlete or a
non-athlete and develop and implement a sound personalized strength training
plan to meet the needs of the individual.
