2.1.Course objectives To present the fundamental classification of contents (exercises) and work methods in resistance and flexibility training. The students are expected to acquire and master the basic and advanced performance techniques of resistance exercises and stretching exercises. Also, they should adopt teaching and training methods specific for resistance and flexibility training. The accent will be on safety measures and principles in resistance training. Further, the students should acquire the basic and derived organizational formations of work in resistance training and flexibility training.

2.2.Course enrolment requirements and entry competences required for the course
The following courses completed: Basic Kinesiological Transformations, Functional Anatomy, Biomechanics, Physiology of Sport and Exercise, Theory of Training.

2.3.Learning outcomes at the level of the programme to which the course contributes
-The ability to consider critically and to solve independently practical kinesiological issues;
-The eligibility to teach diverse basic motor knowledge and skills to persons of variable age, gender, physical activity levels and skills;
-The eligibility to plan, program and execute transformational processes in the areas of applied kinesiology;
-The eligibility to promote physical exercise in the function of health promotion and maintenance in persons of variable age, gender and physical activity levels.

2.4.Learning outcomes expected at the level of the course (4 to 10 learning outcomes)
The students will be empowered to:
-teach efficiently and safely the basic and advanced performance techniques of resistance exercises and stretching exercises to healthy persons of variable age, gender and physical activity levels;
-select optimal contents and exercise methods in fitness training of healthy persons with the aim of 1) developing/keeping muscular-motor components of fitness (especially of strength, power and flexibility) and 2) producing the wanted morphological transformations;
-understand and implement successfully the basic principles of safety and assistance in resistance training;
-understand specific characteristics of the content and method selection in resistance and flexibility training as regards body posture and body composition of healthy persons.
