CSEP Physical Activity Training for Health® (CSEP-PATH®): Section 5 Training for Health and Performance
This Section 5 from the CSEP-PATH® Resource Manual is intended as a refresher for those considering challenging the CSEP High Performance Specialist™ theory exam.
CSEP-PATH® Section 5 comprises two parts: Training for Health and Fitness and Training for Performance. Click on the images below to view the Key Concepts for each part.
Training for Health and Fitness
Developing appropriate exercise recommendations requires a solid understanding of program design principles and how to manipulate these variables to achieve the desired results. This section reviews key training principles and variables for enhancing aerobic and musculoskeletal health and fitness, with a specific focus on how an individual’s habitual levels of physical activity and sedentary behaviour, as well as their fitness, skills, and experience, shape the choices and advice of a qualified exercise professional in the training program design process.
Training for Performance
Many individuals have physically demanding jobs that require a high level of fitness (e.g., police or firefighters) and may require more advanced exercise training to meet those requirements. Others wish to participate in sport activities and require exercise training to improve their performance and help prevent injuries. It is therefore important that qualified exercise professionals understand how training for performance differs from training for overall general health.
