Resistance Training Exercise Demonstration. Resistance training is one mode of exercise prescription. The required reading from your course texts this week highlights various resistance exercises, along with pictures and a description for each exercise. For this discussion, examine exercise prescription by selecting and demonstrating three strength training exercises.
To begin, select one exercise for each of the major muscle groups (lower, core, and upper body). Ensure that you choose different exercises than those already selected by your peers; the goal of this assignment is to compile a large assortment of exercises among all class members. Therefore, do not hesitate to choose some of the less common exercises.
Then, decide on a presentation method for your exercises and review the respective Quick-Start Guide: Jing or Screencast-O-Matic
Each method will allow you to take pictures of yourself prior to the presentation. While presenting, you can simply click on the pictures (or the document containing your pictures) and add your verbal description on how to perform each exercise.
Your chosen method should entail the following components for each exercise:
The starting position (referred to as position a in your text) and movement (referred to as position b in your text) should be clearly performed and commented on. Some exercises may have a third or c component. Should this be the case, it must be addressed as well. Watch for proper form and movement in your demonstration.
The muscles (primary and/or secondary) that are worked in the exercise. You must use the correct medical terminology for the muscles worked. Stating the back or shoulder is not sufficient.
Any equipment needed, if applicable to the exercise.
Expert tips regarding the exercise such as what to look for when observing someone performing the exercise, what to avoid when performing the exercise, placement of feet or other body parts,safety precautions, etc.
Copy and paste the link to your screencast into the discussion post. Do not include it as anattachment.
Be prepared before you get in front of the camera as videos should be 10 minutes in length or less. Please also include the written script for this portion within your posting in case there are technical difficulties.
- Lastly, briefly describe in writing how your chosen strength exercises improve overall fitness and wellness.
Use at least one reference in your response formatted in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center.
Notes: Do not feel limited to use only the exercises presented in your required course texts.
Feel free to utilize additional exercises from online sources such as Fitness.com, TrainOnline.com, or similar online sources of interest to you. Be creative and have fun!
If, for any reason, you are unable to complete these exercise demonstrations yourself, please contact your instructor for alternative options. Remember, all individuals performing these exercises must be 18 years or older and agree to the Consent and Release of Liability Waiver Terms, specified within the Week One specific section.
Guided Response: Review several of your classmates’ posts and respond to at least two of your peers. What did you like about the exercises your peers picked? Were the screencast images and descriptions clear and useful?
Were the exercises easy to perform based on the demonstrations and explanations? Please be specific and ensure that each response is at least 100 words in length
