The curriculum is essentially composed of two macro areas: one dedicated to the Strength area and the other one to the Endurance area.
References to muscle physiology Dependent variables for maximal strength Independent variables for training Explosive strength: Power and RFD Strength assessment Supercompensation (acute/chronic), functional and nonfunctional overtraining Overtraining quantification Strength supercompensation Eccentric vs. concentric adaptations How to train maximal strength How to train explosive strength How to train hypertrophy How to train fitness Background: what to ask Examples of basic programming + level advancement Main training methodologies Understanding of a sport-specific performance model Strength periodization and sport Strength for individual sports Strength for endurance sports Strength for team sports Strength for injury prevention
