Resistance Training Exercise Demonstration [WLOs: 1, 2] [CLOs: 1, 4]<

Muscular strength and muscular endurance are other major components of health-related physical fitness. Prior to entering into this discussion, review this week’s required and recommended readings that highlight various resistance exercises, along with pictures and a description for each exercise. However, do not feel limited to use only the exercises presented in your readings but instead, feel free to utilize additional exercises from online sources such as TrainOnline.com (Links to an external site.)acefitness.org (Links to an external site.)Fitness.com (Links to an external site.), or similar credible online sources of interest to you. Be creative and have fun! 

For this discussion, examine exercise prescription by selecting and demonstrating three strength training exercises using video as your means of presentation.

  • To begin, select one exercise for each of the major muscle groups (lower, core, and upper body). 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 recording and presentation method for your exercises using one of the following options:
    • Option A: Direct Video Recording:
      • Write a script for each of your exercises. Name and save your script as a MS Word document.
      • Record the exercises using a cell phone or digital video camera. Be sure to clearly demonstrate the starting position and movement (Refer back to pages 104-110 of your course text for examples) of each exercise.
      • Upload your video to YouTube (Android (Links to an external site.) ; iPhone/iPad (Links to an external site.)) or other web-based video platform and obtain a link to share with others.
      • Paste your video link and script within your initial post in this discussion forum.
    • Option B: Create a Screencast of a PowerPoint (or equivalent) presentation:
      • Take photos of key points in each exercise and place them in PowerPoint using appropriate titling and transitions. (Refer back to pages 104-110 of your course text for examples.)
      • Write speaker’s notes as a script for each of your exercises at the bottom of each slide.
      • Use either Jing  downloador Screencast-O-Matic  downloadto record your presentation and voice. (You will need either a laptop’s built-in microphone or an external microphone headset to record your voice.)
      • Using either screen cast software package, obtain a link to share with others.
      • Paste your video link and post your PowerPoint file within your initial post in this discussion forum.

Your chosen method should entail the following components for each exercise:

  • The starting position and movement should be clearly performed and commented on. Some exercises may have a third 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 or video (do not include it as an attachment) into the discussion post, along with your video script or PowerPoint presentation (do not convert your PowerPoint presentation to PDF as the speaker notes sections cannot be viewed in PDF format) slide deck. Be prepared before you get in front of the camera as videos should be 10 minutes in length or less.
  • Finally, within your initial post, briefly describe in writing how your chosen strength exercises improve overall fitness and wellness.

Use at least one reference in your post formatted in APA style, as outlined in the Ashford Writing Center. 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 1 specific section.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?
It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.
Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
