Define the three energy pathways. For each pathway, identify two exercises that utilize the pathway. If you were training to run a marathon, which pathway would be the focal point of your training? What types of activities would you incorporate into your marathon training and why? How will an understanding of energy pathways help you in your future training endeavors? 2. Identify and perform ten resistance training exercises. Describe which phase of the exercise is the eccentric, concentric, and isometric phase of the movement. At which phase is the muscle the strongest? Why? Describe how what you have learned during this experience will help you in your future training endeavors. 3. Much has been written in popular magazines about aerobic training and how it is the only way one can burn fat. Explain this belief, evaluate it, and describe why it may or may not be appropriate. Are there other ways to burn fat? If so, what are some of them? How does your knowledge in this area apply to your future training endeavors? 4. Meet with three individuals who have been regularly working out for over a year. Test different fitness components such as maximal strength, strength endurance, aerobic endurance, flexibility, etc. List the component and the results. How do your results compare to theirs? Is one of you more fit than the other or are you just different from one another? How does this learning experience influence your future training endeavors? 5. Pick five supplements currently on the market. Find research based on the supplements and the ingredients. What were the results? Were the studies funded by the supplement company? Is this a supplement backed by credible science? If not, why do you think that so many people are currently using it? 6. Seek out a competent sports medicine expert–medical doctor, chiropractic physician, nurse, or physical therapist–and review some of the sports-medicine conditions outlined in the course text. Are these outlines specific enough? Are any sports-medical conditions left out that should be included? What else can you do to better prepare yourself in assisting your clients to seek competent sports-medical assistance?

Instructions:

Learning experiences are designed to increase your knowledge in areas that interest you.

Learning experiences allow you to integrate the material and serve as a means for ISSA graders to assess your grasp of course concepts.

Each essay response is required to be a minimum of 250 words and, most importantly, include your personal insights as to how the topic will help you as a future professional trainer.

Because these essays are open-book, take the time to provide ample information, detail, and personal analysis in each essay response.

While there is a minimum word requirement for each essay, there is not a maximum word limit.

Feel free to elaborate as needed with relevant information to meet your own personal level of satisfaction.

Students utilize ISSA education in various ways: some target specific types of clients, some focus in a particular area of fitness, some simply want to improve their own well being.
