Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy, Second Edition Online CE Course, is the most comprehensive resource on muscle hypertrophy in the world. Built around a book by Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, an internationally renowned expert on muscle hypertrophy, this course is the definitive resource for strength and conditioning professionals and personal trainers who are seeking information regarding muscle hypertrophy, including the mechanism of its development, how the body structurally and hormonally changes when exposed to stress, ways to effectively design training programs, and nutritional guidelines for eliciting hypertrophic changes.

With more than 1,000 references and applied guidelines, no other resource offers a comparable amount of content solely focused on the science of muscle hypertrophy and its application to designing training programs. You will learn various methods by which hypertrophy is measured, including site-specific measures (circumference measures, MRI, CT, and ultrasound), indirect measures (underwater weighing, DXA, BIA, ADP, and skinfolds), and histological measures (biopsy), as well as the strengths and limitations of each modality.

Although muscle hypertrophy can be attained through a range of training programs, you’ll learn and apply the specific responses and mechanisms that promote optimal muscle hypertrophy. You’ll also receive guidance for achieving greater training volumes with training practices that maximize every individual’s genetic potential to gain muscle. Explore how genetic background, age, sex, and other factors have been shown to mediate the hypertrophic response to exercise, affecting both the rate and the total gain in lean muscle mass.

Sample programs show how to design a three- or four-day-per-week undulating periodized program and a modified linear periodized program for maximizing muscular development. The included study guide provides chapter activities and questions to help solidify understanding of key concepts.

Once you complete the course and pass the exam, you can print a certificate for continuing education credits.

Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, CSCS,*D, CSPS,*D, NSCA-CPT,*D, FNSCA, is internationally regarded as one of the foremost authorities on muscle hypertrophy. The 2011 National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) Personal Trainer of the Year, he is a lifetime drug-free bodybuilder who has won multiple natural bodybuilding titles. As a personal trainer, he has worked with numerous elite-level physique athletes, including many top pros.

Schoenfeld is the recipient of the 2016 Dwight D. Eisenhower Fitness Award, which is presented by the United States Sports Academy for outstanding achievement in fitness and contributions to the growth and development of sport fitness through outstanding leadership activity. He was also the 2018 cowinner of the NSCA Outstanding Young Investigator award. He is the author of multiple fitness books, including The M.A.X. Muscle Plan and Strong & Sculpted. He has been published or featured in virtually every major fitness magazine and has appeared on hundreds of television shows and radio programs across the United States. Currently, he writes the “Ask the Muscle Doc” column for Bodybuilding.com.

Schoenfeld earned his PhD in health promotion and wellness at Rocky Mountain University, where his research focused on elucidating the mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy and their application to resistance training. He has published more than 200 peer-reviewed scientific papers and serves on the editorial advisory boards for several journals, including the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research and the Journal of the International Society of Sports Nutrition.

Schoenfeld is an associate professor of exercise science at Lehman College in the Bronx, New York, and is director of the graduate program in human performance and fitness. He also serves as a sports nutrition consultant for the New Jersey Devils hockey organization.
