EXSC 342 - Human & Sport Performance Training

Credits: 3
This course will discuss the integration of the four EXOS pillars of mindset, nutrition, movement, and recovery. Emphasis will be placed on the testing, theory, and program design behind the EXOS training system and will focus on providing practical, real-world application of the material. There will be a strong focus on coaching and motivational science, movement instruction, feedback, error identification and correction, as well as cueing. We will examine the outcomes associated with differential resistance training regimens. Emphasis is placed on training principles centered on periodization, variation, and progression of the acute program variables of frequency, intensity, volume, and rest across cycles of training to prevent overtraining and promote optimization of performance in various areas. This course will include an extensive hands-on instruction component.
