This package includes the following:
  • Timing Resistance Training ebook
  • Online continuing education exam
Timing Resistance Training teaches you how to work with athletes to manipulate their internal muscle clocks so they can train and perform at their best every day—right down to the specific time of day that is best for their body. You will learn to view the muscles as proactive, independent physiological systems that can be trained to “think” by delivering timing cues that tell muscles when to activate key physiological actions that influence the entire body.

Next, you will learn how to cue those internal clocks with purposeful training methods like biomechanical pairing of exercises, complex training, and concurrent training. The book addresses rest as an integral training variable and explores the timing of activity–rest cycles versus recuperation only. The text also discusses the concept of undertraining, an intentional program design adjustment that uses the ability of muscle to anticipate training.

The final chapters offer tools to create training programs for strength, power, and flexibility. These chapters include sample single-session workouts, weekly workouts, and long-term programming routines.

After reading the ebook, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.

Learning Objectives
  • Understand the concept of muscle clocks.
  • Understand interference theory as it relates to endurance training and resistance training.
  • Identify mechanisms of interference and training methods to minimize the interference effect.
  • Identify timing cues that muscle clocks use to monitor training time intervals.
  • Understand how to design concurrent training programs that are not counterproductive.
  • Understand the concept of anticipation training and how to apply it to resistance training.
  • Understand the concept of intentional undertraining.
  • Identify the differences between intentional undertraining and training based on volume and intensity.
  • Use the concept of muscle clocks to create workouts for strength, power, and flexibility training.
  • Understand how to use suggested exercises along with strategic timing to design resistance training workouts.
