Is This Seminar for You?

Have you ever wanted to understand how muscular hypertrophy happens? 
 
Do you want to know how to write a training program that maximizes muscle growth? 
 
Would you like to be able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of a popular workout routine by knowing the underlying physiology?
 
In this one-day seminar, Chris Beardsley of Strength and Conditioning Research will give you a framework to help you achieve all of this.
 
Divided into four easily-digested talks, the seminar assumes little previous knowledge, but will take your understanding of strength training, hypertrophy, and bodybuilding to new heights, no matter how experienced you are as a coach or personal trainer, or how well-read you are in sports science.

Seminar Itinerary

In the first part of this seminar, Chris explains why we need to abandon the traditional three-part model (mechanical tension, metabolic stress, and muscle damage), which was based on a number of misunderstandings regarding how muscles produce force, when muscle fibers experience mechanical tension, and which muscle fibers grow after training.

In the second talk, Chris sets out a new explanation for how muscle growth occurs, based upon fundamental principles of muscle physiology, including the force-velocity relationship, the length-tension relationship, the size principle, and the various different types of fatigue. This new approach explains all of the findings of the literature that are otherwise very difficult to reconcile with the traditional three-part model of mechanical tension, metabolic stress, and muscle damage.

In the third part of the seminar, Chris covers the key strength training variables of volume, load, range of motion, rest period duration, tempo, frequency, contraction mode, proximity to failure, concurrent training, exercise selection, advanced techniques, and periodization. The effects of each variable are explained in the light of the underlying physiology, which correctly predicts the outcomes of long-term training studies. 

Finally, based on the analysis performed in the preceding three parts, the final talk of the seminar sets out a new approach to practical programming for muscle growth.

Each part of the seminar lasts approximately 45 – 60 minutes. Time will be set aside for questions after each part.
 
If you are at all interested in hypertrophy, whether for yourself or for your clients, then do not miss this opportunity! This will be the only time that this talk is delivered in public this year!

Getting To The Event

The seminar will run from 9.30am to 4.30pm at Sheffield Hallam University, Collegiate Crescent (Collegiate Campus), Sheffield S10 2BP which is 30 minutes walk from the train station.

You can find a map of the campus here. Traveling by car? The campus is located near to the ring road, making it straightforward to access from either the North or South, and there is plenty of free parking on the road immediately outside the venue.

If you arrive with more than 10 minutes to spare, there are several coffee shops within a few minutes walk, as well as lots of lunch options for later in the day. Upon arrival, just walk through the main doors at the Heart of the Campus, and follow the signs to the seminar! We’ll also have TRA team members on hand to direct you as well.
