Abstract or Summary
  • The purpose of this study was to determine whether differences exist in the level of coverage of resistance exercise in select four-year college and university undergraduate physical education programs. The study also examined whether differences exist between content suggested for training resistance exercise specialists and the curriculum being offered. A final dimension of the study was to identify existing program options with an emphasis on resistance exercise. The objective was to identify information that might be applied by college and university-level curriculum specialists for the development of resistance exercise related courses. The survey instrument (a mailed questionnaire) was developed by integrating the NSCA role delineation study (1988) and a study of the literature related to resistance exercise. A panel of specialists was employed to expand, modify, and validate the instrument. Twelve categories and 91 content areas were identified. The study population was comprised of 76 National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA) members who were listed under undergraduate physical education programs in the Physical Education Gold Book. Of the 76 members contacted, 63 (83%) completed and returned the questionnaire. The findings of the study showed that differences do exist in the level of coverage of resistance exercise in the curriculum of four-year undergraduate physical education programs. The three categories with the most consistently high coverage were Muscle Physiology, Biomechanics, and Testing and Evaluation. The three categories with the most consistently low level of coverage were Administration/Organizational Concerns, Special Populations, and Methods Used to Develop Strength. The content areas with the most consistently high level of coverage were Dynamics of Contraction, Movement Terminology, Body Mechanics, Lactic Acid Metabolism, and Modes of Strength Training. The content areas receiving the most consistently low level of coverage were Legal Issues, and Functional Isometrics.
