In Advanced Hypertrophy: Exercise & Nutritional Science you will discover the different combinations of programming variables that are necessary for hypertrophy training adaptation. This course covers different training systems and distinguishes between muscle hypertrophy, endurance, strength and power. Importantly, you will learn the principles that actually produce results!



A range of topics will be covered, including:


  • Nutritional science of hypertrophy and body composition

  • Evidence-based information on over 20 training systems

  • Research-based periodisation and practical applications

  • Neuromuscular biochemistry for strength and hypertrophy

  • Advanced program design and practices

  • Electromyography (EMG) research on muscle activation

  • Endocrinology for hypertrophy and muscle growth




Our comprehensive learning resources include:


  • Advanced hypertrophy course manual (hard-copy) - printed and sent to you 

  • Video resources, learning activities and case studies

  • Professional commentary from Australian and International athletes





By the end of this course you will have the skills to effectively implement advanced overload techniques for strength and hypertrophy along with a comprehensive understanding of the most effective and time-efficient programming options. You will understand what periodisation methods work best for hypertrophy and how to structure a program accordingly. This is an essential skill to avoid fatigue, injury and inflammation in your clients!


Upon completion of the course you receive a professional certificate and transcript detailing the competencies covered.
