902 Designing the Most Result-Producing Resistance Training Programs  
LECTURE

8:00am–5:00pm (1-hour lunch is on your own) Charles R. Poliquin

Designing the best program in the weight room requires a very specific and extensive set of skills. In this seminar, you will learn to manipulate loading parameters (sets, reps, tempo, rest intervals, choice and order of exercise, etc.) to derive the best results possible. You will get the optimal combination of research-based data and in-the-trenches experience to maximize the impact on your clients.

Topics include:

  1. Assessing the Needs of the Individual: Learn how to identify what your client needs and ensure that goals are met in the most rapid manner.
  2. Individualizing Your Approach: Many factors come into optimal program design, choice of equipment and biological age, to name two. Learn how to resolve any challenge that may occur during the training process.
  3. Constant and Never-Ending Improvement: The most successful coaches know how to keep gains coming. You will learn time-tested periodization that brings about results and will create envy among your colleagues. Success builds success.
  4. How to Monitor Program Efficiency: The biggest limiting factor in successful program design is the ability to analyze training data to its fullest. In this segment, you will learn to optimize progress curves by understanding the training load data submitted by your clients. For example, is it intensity, volume, variation patterns or something else that is keeping your client from reaching a goal?
