Science and Development of Muscle Hypertrophy | 15 CEU
Learn from the most comprehensive resource on muscle hypertrophy in the world, authored by Brad Schoenfeld, PhD, the internationally renowned expert on muscle hypertrophy. This is the definitive resource for strength and conditioning professionals 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 most effectively design training programs, and nutritional guidelines for eliciting hypertrophic changes.
Offering more than 1,000 references and applied guidelines, this delivers practical content on the measurement of muscle hypertrophy and advanced training practices. 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. Help your clients achieve greater training volumes with training practices that maximize the individual’s genetic potential to gain muscle.
Comprehend the mechanisms of muscle hypertrophy, including the influences of genetics, hormones, nutrition and stress.
Develop protocols for measuring muscle hypertrophy, such as site-specific, indirect and histological measures.
Implement evidence-based periodization programs that maximize muscular development.
