The course discusses new research on the relationship between estrogen loss and its effects on muscle satellite cells and muscle health in women over 40. Learners are shown how to design safe and effective resistance training routines to increase muscle mass and strength and improve body composition and appearance in women over 40. This course is directly related to the practice of physical therapy and athletic training and is therefore appropriate for the PT/PTA and AT.
