I have learned more in depth terminology about specifics of the knee and how it is meant to function. I will begin to utilize a fully comprehensible outline of strength training to all my clients. Very easy to navigate the book and study guide into one comprehensible tool to provide excellent programming to my clients.  Lori Hill Moffitt, AFPA Certified Professional
