    That's all in the text I know for sure. Ill tell you the page numbers when I get home ( on phone now).

    Fats transport ADEK is page 440.

    Shoulder extension is page 63.

    Positive psychology and flexible thinking I remember vividly as well just don't have time to look now.

    The injury of ankle sprains effecting the
    gluteus medius I can't remember the exact location off my head either, its right next to low back pain and ACL injuries

    Bradster, you say you have more than 1 certification, which one do you like the best? after I'm done with NASM I want to do another certification, but I also want to become a Registered Dieticien which I start classing spring 2012 to start on my way to that.

    I want to become a registered dietician REALLY BAD. That will tie into personal training tremendously.

    As for certifications If I had to pick just one I'd say NASM but they are all close. I decided to get the NASM CPT, PES and CES, then buy just the ACE test for 200 , then I had ISSA from a while back when they ran a deal.

    The CES and PES you take at home and ISSA as well , ACE has a testing facility 20min from my house.

    If you have extra money I'd get the NASM PES and CES . The PES is 549 pages and the CES is slightly smaller so its a lot of different knowledge.

    But ACE is nice too and you could buy the book and test only pretty cheap.

    Nsca is great too my friend has it and is very knowledgeable, it's just they cover a lot of the same information and I'm trying to diversify myself as much as possible.

    appreciate it, u seem to know your nasm backwards and forwards....i completely do not remember the flexible thinking/positive psychology at all.......Like some questions i might not know but i will recognize the terminology, those two i don't remember at all.

    and i guess the ankle sprains are from chapter 1 if they're near the back issues and acl

    What are the benefits of having multiple ***** from different organizations, are ACE, ISSA, NSCA, etc...drastically different than NASM. Does their research conflict with each other in certain cases. Does having multi-***** increase your worth to a gym, will it up your pay or not make much of a difference.

    Well out of all the ones I have none of them conflict, they are all good at using straight facts, they do have different methods though , I personally like NASMs OPT model but you will find differences.

    One local gym to me pays 2 dollars extra per certification you have so with 4 extra I could make an extra 8 dollars an hour over a one certificatin trainer.

    But I do it to diversify my knowledge, I just love to learn, and when I open my own facility/ gym soon It will look better to the public the more I have.

    How much time should I put in learning all the specific muscles and functions in Chapter 4? I feel like I've grasped everything up to that point really well but I'm getting frustrated trying to learn all the muscles (specifically all the adductors and each function).

    are you on chapter 4, or going back and reviewing chapter 4?

    For me personally, lots of the muscles are repeated so much throughout the text that you eventually just learn them. When I didn't know a word i usually would wikipedia it to find the location, it helped some.

    Bradster says to learn by group (hip complex, quad complex, lower leg complex, etc..) and the isolated function of each. When i took the practice exam i only had a couple questions like the latissmus dorsi is responsible for concentrically accelerating....A, b, c, or d


    some of the muscles u won't read about and i don't think are that important for the test....the psoas for example you'd probably hear on the test tho, and i never heard of it before NASM (hip flexor complex)

    I'm on Chapter 4.
    I think I'll just have to spend some more time with it. I'm basically focusing on group, concentric, eccentric, and isometric functions. It's just a bit tricky because, like you said, some names are unfamiliar and/or similar sounding.
    Thanks for the help.

    Like Edgar said it looks a lot harder then it is just do groups and you can learn everything you need with 16 note cards and learn that in a few days throughout the day while you continue reading the book.

    P.S personal made note cards were the biggest thing that helped me. If you see something hard for you, turn it into a note card and you'll know it with a little practice.

    So do you just pay the $799 get the materials, go over it yourself and then take the test at the local testing center?

    Edit: Because I recently loss my job, have all the free time in the world. Love to spend my time in the gym and looking for a job that helps other people, increase my knowledge or something valuable and make what I was making before which was just over 2k per month.

    For 799 you'd Get the DVDs, computer questions, practice tests a workbook ect. S

    Study that at your house then drive to a testing facility.

    If you got extra cash from your old job and want this for your career for sure, get the PES and CES too..they are worth it and will save you Like 800 if you bundle. Basically getting one free.

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

    You can pick any popular certification, I like NASM because it's the longest , but ACE and NSCA are great too.

    can't you use ces and pes as continuing education credits once u r CPT....i'm just worried about CPT first.

    I took the practice exam a 2nd time (which had different questions) and got a 88.33! I still felt like i missed too many questions, i thought i did worse than that but was pleasantly surprised. I feel like i'm overpreparing not for the test but in preparation of a job interview afterwards if they try and grill me on what i've learned, but they will probably be more concerned on acute variables of training, compensations, and methodology if your training techniques. Not really sure what to expect in job interview but i don't wanna have any blanks.

    Yep, also you cannot take the PES or CES without the cpt or a 4 year degree.

    And the practice exam wont really repeat itself until 3 or 4 attempts then it will have almost all the same stuff you have seen.

    couple of cardio assessment questions

    When performing the 3 minute step test, how do u determine what is 24 steps a minute? Are you counting there steps or just trying to make sure they're going at a moderate base of a step every 2.5ish seconds?

    Other two questions on Rockport which i don't think are really relevant to the test but in the formula when you are recording your time. Are you recording it in seconds? It'll take some people 10 minutes to walk a mile so are you just going to put down 600 seconds?

    and when recording the heart rate immediately after the rockport walk test, do you always count the full 60 seconds or take it for 30x2.....or take it for 6 and multiply by 10? I'd imagine the full 60 seconds would be most accurate since you're trying to find the proper heart rate zone to train in but the book doesn't specify

    intermuscular/intramuscular coordination...is there an easy way to remember those, I've written down the definitions a few times but when it comes to a question i usually still can't remember which is which. Do i just need to write the definitions down more? I'd imagine theres a question on the test with atleast one of those two as an answer?

    My other question is about acute variables. I have the resistance training variables all down. As far as reactive, balance, saq, i don't really know the rest periods, reps, sets, etc...for all those. Will that be important for the test? So far on my phone app and on the practice tests i've taken there really hasn't been much asked about the non-resistance acute variables.

    I am reading chapter 2 (for the second time), which seems to be written in a foreign language to me. I feel like when I am through with this book I can be a doctor, at very least in a 3rd world country.
