Learn about Resistance Exercise

Resistance exercise is important for building and maintaining muscle strength. Resistance training is when the body resists a force that is placed on it. This can involve using weight machines, free weights, resistance bands, body weight and other exercises.

Appropriate muscle strength training is increasingly important in modern society where many people are increasingly physically inactive, especially at work. Through proper and regular resistance exercise, a person can control spinal problems and many other issues associated with aging. For others, strength training can be an important part of an overall exercise regime.

How will this course advance my career?

Learning Cloud programs have been developed in response to industry demand and are specifically designed to equip graduates with work-ready skills. Each participant will be trained and assessed in theory and in practical tasks and Real-world exercises are used throughout the program.

Studies prove, time and again, that college-educated workers earn more than those with only a high school qualification. College graduates often enjoy additional benefits, including greater job opportunities and promotions. Though the proof for greater earning potential exists, some might wonder whether the cost of the education warrants the overall expense in the long run.

College Graduate vs. Non-Graduate Earnings

The National Centre for Education Statistics (NCES) analyses employee earnings data biennially, according to education level. Findings indicate that workers with a qualification earn significantly more than those without. Since the mid-1980s, education has played a large part in potential wages, with bachelor's degree holders taking home an average of 66% more than those with only a high school diploma do. While college-educated workers' wages have increased over the past two decades, those with only a high school education have seen decreases in annual salaries in the same time period (nces.ed.gov).
