This subject will advance the student's competencies in developing fitness and conditioning programs by extending beyond developing basic programs for the lay public to focus on the refinements necessary for developing fitness in actively training athletes. Methods of developing muscular hypertrophy, strength, power and endurance, as well as sport specific speed and agility will be investigated. This subject will also explore long term management of an athlete's health, recovery, and nutrition. This subject has strong technical and academic components so students will be expected to proficiently demonstrate skills in addition to explain underlying physiological mechanisms.
