Most of us are aware of our skeletal and muscular systems and their importance in all things physical activity. The nervous system, however, is a commonly overlooked body system within the fitness industry due to the fact that it cannot be directly seen or felt.
This course offers insights into the importance of this system by covering the foundations of nervous system anatomy and physiology. In addition, this course discusses the underlying factors that contribute to traditional strength training programming and relevant program variables, as well as discussing adaptations that occur at the level of the nervous system in response to strength training.
Upon completion of this course you will have an understanding of the workings of the human nervous system and how this system is the key driver behind force output and strength gains.
- Nervous system anatomy
- The major divisions of the nervous system
- Nerve conduction physiology
- Neuromuscular integration
- Strength training adaptations relevant to the nervous system
