This course will teach assessments of muscle strength and power, using a wide range of exercises and tests. These concepts and practices are central to functioning as a professional in exercise science, sport science, physical therapy, athletic training, and fitness. This course also covers exercise prescription, program administration, and management for a variety of athletic areas. Labs are participatory and require significant exertion. It is difficult to teach exercises to a client or patient or understand adaptations and programming if you have not performed the exercises.
