Exercise Technique Manual for Resistance Training, Second Edition, contains the following features:

  • Extremely thorough checklists for 57 resistance training exercises, helping readers safely perform the exercises or oversee the safe and correct performance of them

  • Instruction from experts who were selected and approved by the NSCA

  • Over 140 photos that demonstrate proper execution of the exercises

  • Accurate exercise technique for each exercise on the DVDs, which also highlights some of the most common incorrect techniques

This resource provides clear descriptions for those performing resistance training exercises or for those who instruct others. The manual gives detailed explanations on technique for each free-weight and machine exercise, and the accompanying DVDs show the movements for each exercise in action. Readers using this manual to study for the CSCS or NSCA-CPT exams will find this resource particularly helpful as they prepare for exam questions relating to anatomy, biomechanics, program design, and exercise technique.
The manual and DVDs supply 5 total-body, 14 lower-body, 36 upper-body, and 2 abdominal exercises. For each exercise, the manual details the type of exercise (e.g., whether it is a single-joint or multi-joint exercise), the predominant muscle groups and muscles involved, and technique guidelines from beginning to end, including starting position, downward movements, and upward movements. When appropriate, the manual also covers transitions, catches, and other phases. It offers spotting guidelines, safety suggestions, weight belt recommendations, and breathing guidelines.

The result is a complete manual with expert guidance in safely performing common resistance training exercises—something that both professionals and students can use to further their careers.
