PASQUALINO RICCIARDI | Research Reviews/Case Studies | 01 Nov 2014

I was wondering, as I read many article regarding Creatine Monohydrate, if this supplement retain water to the muscle or not. in one research it is shown that creatine will not results in water retention but the individual will have achieved free fat muscle mass, (without water retention), some research suggests that it does occurring water retention in the first loading phase. and that is where I am really confused about this supplement. can anyone help me to find out any recent researches about this topic thank you

Mock session grading rubric?

Daniel Fernandez | Professional/Self Development | 11 Jul 2014

Hello fitness professionals. I was wondering if anyone out there has a sample grading rubric that they use in the hiring process of personal trainers. Its basically a sheet or two that takes the personal trainer candidate through a mock PT session to see gauge how they interact with a client and a grading scale based on their exercise programming knowledge. If anyone has a good resource, please let me know!! Dan

Improving Hurdle Time for Track Athlete

Spencer Bowersmith | Sports-Specific | 21 Apr 2014

I have a client who is 20 years old and currently a track athlete at a community college. Her ultimate goal is to try and walk-on to a university squad this summer. Her goal is to cut down her total time. I have trained track and field athletes before but never Hurdles specifically. What would be a good program to put her on to help her achieve her goal? Cheers, Spencer B.
