Elite Physique With CE Exam

Elite Physique With CE Exam

$149.00 USD


Product Format
    The package components are as follows:
    • Elite Physique text
    • Continuing education exam (accessed online)
    Elite Physique With CE Exam offers a fresh approach to body sculpting. Based on scientifically proven strategies for making workouts more effective, Elite Physique features over 100 exercises and 50 exercise videos for men seeking training programs designed to build muscle, burn fat, or target those problem areas that are slower to respond to training.

    Written by Dr. Chad Waterbury, a physical therapist who understands how bodies change with age, Elite Physique shows you how to help your clients make radical physical changes by manipulating sets, reps, and frequency and by deciding when and how to use advanced training methods. The course includes a physical assessment to establish a starting point and more accurately gauge progress. You'll find tips on altering exercises to alleviate stress on primary joints and learn the finer points of sculpting the midsection. Video clips offer demonstrations of many of the exercises, highlighting proper technique and common mistakes.

    Waterbury also includes advice on how to make staple lifts such as squats, deadlifts, and presses more joint friendly for older, more physically battered lifters. He breaks down how training must change as you age—with a program for a 20-year-old looking different than one for a 50-year-old—to safely pursue the goal of a lean, muscular physique. Upon completing the book, certified professionals can take the companion CE exam to earn continuing education credits.
