    Thank you brother! Goodluck in your career as a personal trainer although I am sure you'll do great, you showed a lot of dedication studying that hard.

    And congratulations on passing! Its a huge step towards your career.

    So far, I've studied 2-3 hours per day since October 22nd (sometimes 3-5 hours if I've got the time) and I just wrapped up chapter 5.

    I've also taken 22 pages of notes on Microsoft Word (easier to organize) to help me retain the more important key points and for a study guide reference to stay up on previous chapters while I complete new one's. I'd love to be able to have someone review them and highlight some of the more important things to review if at all possible. If you would be so kind as to consider doing this for me, I'd be extremely grateful and rep the **** out of you. HAHAAA :-D

    I've read each chapter twice and completed the study guide sections including the post chapter review questions which I know like the back of my hand (without memorization).

    I think chapter 4 has been the biggest pain in my ass so far though. Any further advice on how to retain all the functional anatomy? Is it really necessary to learn every bit of information on pages 68-86?

    Thank you in advance for your wisdom, Bradster.

    Bradster,

    NASM was recently looking for experts to teach their workshops. Not sure if you meet the requirements, but they wanted people to send a video and resume. The information was on their FB page. Not sure if it is still open or if you would be interested, but think you would be great for the job! I haven't read the whole post, sorry if this has already been mentioned.

    yeah same here with chapter 4. i made flashcards of all the vocab too. i just finished reading chapter 5, and have yet to make the flashcards but i have almost 100. i combines things that are similar though, like the planes of movement, aerobic and anaerobic, etc. to cut down on the number of cards.

    but i was wondering the same thing. do we also need to know all the functional anatomy? I plan to learn this eventually anyway but AFTER my nasm, and actually learn all the bones and muscles and all that fun stuff!

    I will certainly look over them for you, also functional anatomy is easiest learned on note cards from my experience , the muscle name on front and information you should know about it on the back. You sound very prepared so far though!

    Thanks brother, it hasn't been mentioned and I would love a opportunity for a job like that, I will check into it later.

    I recommend learning this slowly overtime so it becomes natural and second nature, first learn all the basic bones like the Femur , Radius, Ulna , Humerus ect then over months you can go deeper into less important ones like the metacarpals,clavicle phalanges ect.

    but it is FUNCTIONAL anatomy so even for the muscles first learn all the basics like the Biceps, Triceps , latissimus Dorsi , Quadriceps ect then go deeper into the individual heads of the quads eventually for example.



    And To Everyone

    Sorry for my slow reply I normally post from my smartphone but if you have one you probably know the Droid bionic is having issues.


    Dont hesitate to ask anymore questions guys , I just love helping people and want to help spread fit healthy lifestyles as far as possible.

    Great advice! I downloaded a flashcard app on the trustee iPhone and input almost all of the functional anatomy and it's helping A LOT thus far. :-D

    And I've got 30 pages of notes now. Just wrapped up chapter 7 tonight! What's your email address?

    Glad I found this thread, as i plan on taking my test in late December but haven't officially scheduled it yet. Bought the fourth edition of the textbook online but I don't have the study guide(do you think i need to buy it?). I'm a semester away from graduating with my BS in human nutrition, foods, and exercise so im very comfortable with most of this information. I'm just worried im not concentrating on the right stuff. I noticed everyone talking a lot about pg.169 but in my version its just stretching techniques, what exactly are you all referring to?

    Page 169 is mostly overactive underactive muscles understanding, the stretching techniques area on it is a small part ( maybe 3 questions)

    Cliffs:

    -Took me ~2 months from the date i got my materials to the date I passed the exam
    -Was paranoid about failing because of the under/over active muscles
    -Made flash cards (knowing your vocabulary will give you a BIG advantage on the multiple choice test
    -"Flagged" (able to come back to them later) all questions I wasn't ~90% sure about
    -Took all the online tests until I got nearly 100% on them (This includes the final and all the module quizzes)
    -Utilized the online flash cards and rewrote them by hand. I posted them on here somewhere (Look through my posts/threads).

    *Shoot me a PM if you have any questions - It'll help me out too.

    One odd thing I noticed for me was that once I passed I got this feeling like "this is it? now what?" It was like passing the exam was more important than becoming a training. I'm still working on actually becoming a trainer btw.
    If you want drastic results you need to take drastic measures.

    I'm currently studying for for this. My goal is to take the test in early January. This guide is helping a lot so far!

    Lol I just looked at page 169 in my book. Turns out I have the wrong book! I have been studying the Sports Performance Training book for the last month. I purchased back in September. They are sending me the right book and giving me 180 days from today now. Good thing I noticed. Although I feel like an idiot for not noticing earlier haha

    Glad you figured that out ! I was wondering about the 4th edition comment because both my CPT books are 3rd.

    It helps when I make a study regimen for myself. Gives me something to go off of and keeps me in line with my goals.

    Good idea gicmving yourself a regimen ! That looks like a great setup and since you already read the book once you should be prepared by the end of that.


    If I were you I would take the NASM practice exam once a week ( so you dont memorize the practice exam) and this can measure your progress more regularly.

    It is a great representation of the test and tool for studying if you dont just memorize the anwsers by taking it too often.


    Also the special populations chapter( 14) in the book contains a TON of information but theres only 2 questions from it on the final exam and they are also learned elsewhere so you can just breeze over that chapter the second read through to save a good amount of study time.


    But really you set it up great , I am sure youll pass goodluck!

    Chapter 4: Muscle grouping?

    ---------------------------------------------------------
    Hamstring group -Accelerates knee flexion and hip extension..( Grouped them all together instead of learning every little muscle)


    Quadricep Group-Knee Extension and Hip Flexion( grouped them as well)

    Gluteus Maximus -hip extension and external rotation

    Latissimus Dorsi-Shoulder extension, abduction and internal rotation

    Rhomboids-Scapular retraction and downward rotation.

    Biceps Brachi-Elbow flexion , shoulder flexion and supination of radioulnar joint

    Triceps-Elbow and shoulder extension

    Serratus Anterior- Scapular Protraction

    Solues and Gastrocnemius-Plantarflexion

    Rectus Abdominis- Spinal flexion, lateral flexion and rotation
    Thanks for a great thread! I'm currently studying for the NASM exam and I had a question about how to group the muscles in chapter 4. Would you recommend grouping each section (lower leg complex, hip musculature, abdominal musculature, etc..) or just the ones you posted previously? I've never studied human anatomy so it's completely new to me. Any advice would help! Thanks in advance!

    The ones I mentioned arent all of them , just what I remembered off the top of my head. That section is the hardest for most people to fully comprehend so just keep referencing back and studying it over the whole course of your exam preperation. After every other chaptercome back and learn 2 new muscle groups ect.


    You can group almost anything with the same function, just do what feels comfortable to you.

    So I've learned the lower leg, hamstring, and quadriceps complex today and thought I'd share a site that is really helping me locate the muscles. I might not be pronouncing them properly yet, but I sure can recognize them. I've been using sharecare .com human body maps.

    Good advice, also for people out there with smartphones get the application speed anatomy, it is an addicting anatomy learning game.

    I went through my CPT book in about a month and im doing really well with practice tests, using the iphone apps, the study guide etc.... BUT any time i get a question with a muscle description or "identify which muscle is over/under active?" or "what causes a persons foot to turn out during a squat assessment?" I totally go blank and cant answer it correctly.

    How do I "Comprehend" this stuff

    I went back to your original post and looked at your groups:

    ----------------------------------------------------------------
    Hamstring group -Accelerates knee flexion and hip extension..( Grouped them all together instead of learning every little muscle)

    Quadricep Group-Knee Extension and Hip Flexion( grouped them as well)

    Gluteus Maximus -hip extension and external rotation

    Latissimus Dorsi-Shoulder extension, abduction and internal rotation

    Rhomboids-Scapular retraction and downward rotation.

    Biceps Brachi-Elbow flexion , shoulder flexion and supination of radioulnar joint

    Triceps-Elbow and shoulder extension

    Serratus Anterior- Scapular Protraction

    Solues and Gastrocnemius-Plantarflexion

    Rectus Abdominis- Spinal flexion, lateral flexion and rotation

    -----------------------------------------------------------

    Are those the only groups/muscles you made yourself aware of before going into the test? what about the hip musculature? that cant be grouped can it?
    Im staring at these pages and im just lost.

    thanks for any help or advice!
