Description

Virginia Board of Physical Therapy 3.5 (Type 1)–Please check with your state board for approval as most physical therapy boards will reciprocate approval for continuing education.

The American Academy of Health and Fitness (BOC AP#: P3645) is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Certified Athletic Trainers. This program is eligible for a maximum of 3.5 Category A hours/CEUs. AT Level of Difficulty: Advanced, AT Domains: (1=Injury/Illness Prevention and Wellness Promotion; 2= Examination, Assessment and Diagnosis; 3= Immediate and Emergency Care; 4= Therapuetic Intervetion; 5= Health Care Administration and Professional Responsibility): 1

The American College of Sports Medicine’s Professional Education Committee certifies that “American Academy of Health and Fitness” meets the criteria for official ACSM Approved Provider status from 2017 – December 2021– Providership # 817430.

The Combined Training continuing education home study course is offered to you in a distance-learning format, providing a logical progression from initial concepts to clinical applications. 

The manual introduces the problems of combined strength and conditioning programming and its impacts on muscle performance. 

The content includes an explanation of interference theory and molecular muscle confusion and how mechanisms related to muscle strength, endurance, and power compete. 

Combining the latest research on muscle physiology, the existence of muscle clocks is introduced and how they impact strength and conditioning programming and performance are explored. 

The manual moves from the latest science behind strength and conditioning to program design including a review of basic programming principles and variables and how-to use them now based on current research. 

The manual ends with suggested exercises and sample routine for immediate use.

My AAHF course was comprehensive and well laid-out. It was also very succinct, easy to study for and very useful in day-to-day client programming.
