College of DuPage PE 1171: Weight Training I

Online Weight Training I

We’ve taken what was traditionally an activity class and turned it upside down to give the online student an opportunity to experience weight lifting from a different perspective. This class is designed for everyone from the person who has never lifted weights before, to those who may be preparing to sit for a national personal training certification. Are you interested?

The College of DuPage Course Catalog describes this course as follows:

1 credit hour
An introduction to weight training. Application of the fundamentals of strength training through the use of machine and free weights. Basic anatomy and physiology associated with weight training and safe lifting procedures. (2 lab hours)

It is all of this and more! Through the use of the National Strength and Conditioning Association's exercise technique manual with companion DVD’s included, you will be well on your way to expanding your exercise know how.

This class involves a lot of work, more so than its “in the weight room” counterpart. There are weekly assignments, and four tests that will be administered throughout the semester. There are no prerequisites for this course; however those students who have taken an online class before will have an advantage. Students who have taken or have a background in Human Anatomy and Physiology will also have an advantage.

If you have ever been interested in starting a weight training program, or learning more about the proper form for more than 57 different weight lifting exercises, then this is the class for you.
