    I'm the best program design book. Unfortunately, there's only one copy in all existence, and it's not an easy read.

    What degree do you have, or working on? Just remember CSCS requires a degree in exercise related field. The book i used for CSCS test is the NSCA Essentials of Strength Training and Conditioning. I read through it three times, once through quickly, second time through highlighting and taking notes, and the third time I just reviewed. Test is around 4 hours so be ready!

    The book covers program design and peridiozation pretty well, usually with an example of three different sports. NSCA also has a Guide to Program Design book that looks pretty interesting. I personally haven't seen it but amazon allows you to look through certain pages of the book.

    Also, I recommend looking into any Gray Cook, Alwyn Cosgrove, or Mike Boyle materials. All are very distinguished strength coaches with knowledge on movement and proper athletic programs and exercises.

    You are correct. I know people with degrees that have absolutely nothing to do with exercise (like Philosophy, English, History, etc.) that have the CSCS. I even asked NSCA to make sure. Your BA/BS doesn't have to have anything to do with exercise.

    My horror novel, Wolf Hunter (written under my pen name, J.L. Benet), is now available from Belfire Press. For those who like your werewolves served with a side of bloody gore (as opposed to sparkle-fairies and ennui), this is the novel for you.

    Correct, May not have to be Exercise related.. But degree is needed.

    Please note that to be eligible to take the CSCS exam, candidates must be CPR/AED certified and hold a
    bachelor’s degree, be enrolled as a college senior at an accredited college or university or hold a degree in
    chiropractic medicine. Contact NSCA Certification for more information on prerequisites for the CSCS exam:
