About the Advanced Resistance Training Certification

Advanced resistance training is essential knowledge for personal trainers who want to take their clients’ resistance training to the next level. We begin with an in-depth look into muscle function and describe the effect that advanced resistance training has on the various muscle groups.

We then move on to the science of designing and tailoring training programmes for a variety of client types by using prescribed protocols and tools for advanced resistance training.

Two modules are devoted to practical resistance training techniques and include a full description of each technique, the pros and cons of these techniques and detailed practical examples

Finally, we take a look at the importance of health screening, to ensure that client eligibility for these programmes is prioritised and that client safety is guaranteed.
