Three Levels of Testing

The enclosed DVD / Online Video walks you through 136 weight-training readiness tests of Self-Tests, Functional Muscle Tests, Exercise Tests. 

The Self-Test contains several move­ments that test, without weights, your ability to move with proper technique through the full range of motion.

The Functional Muscle Test demonstrates how fitness professionals, therapists, and physicians can test their clients’ weight-training readiness and determine functional weaknesses. This is an excellent section for professional trainers to use for testing muscle performance in each exercise.
The Exercise Test presents strength-training exercises and reviews the optimal techniques for each. Then it describes and demonstrates common problems caused by weaknesses and dysfunctions in the muscles, joints, or nerves that are being trained. 

Learn Proper Technique

The enclosed DVD / Online Video demonstrates proper technique for 33 weight-training exercises. You will see demonstrations of basic strength-train­ing exercises and hear a narration that describes proper technique. You can use these techniques to improve your own training or you can use it with clients, team members, and friends.

Corrective  Training

The Corrective Training sections guide you to supplementary flexibility, isometric, and tubing exercises using the muscles worked in the strength-training exercises for each body area. PNF exercises are also included for the chest, shoulders, and upper back.
