Eccentrics for Functional Aging: How to Use Eccentric Training to Gain Strength and Reduce Injury


Presented by Jonathan Mike

Many new developments have been explored and discussed with respect to eccentric (ECC) training, including its application in body composition, its use in progressive overload and in more-specific training guidelines. ECC muscle exercise is useful not only for athletes and healthy individuals but also those with moderately to severely limited exercise capacity — with the ultimate goal being to improve their functional capacity and quality of life. This course examines the science of eccentric training and extends this science by focusing on practical recommendations for all abled-bodied and athletic populations.

This course will:

  • Discuss the updated science with eccentric training and how it applies to functional aging populations;
  • Provide health and fitness professionals unique insights into eccentric training and programming strategies; and
  • Show how various eccentric training modalities can increase strength and decrease risk of injury.

This course includes an online video and a corresponding online quiz.

All course content will be presented to you electronically upon completion of your purchase. This includes the video files, quizzes and certificates (certificates awarded upon successful completion of the quiz).
