Some common certifications for the S&C professional may be the ACSM Certified Personal Trainer (CPT) and ACSM Certified Health Fitness Specialist (HFS). USA Weightlifting offers the Level 1 Sports Performance Coach Certification, which is excellent for coaching the Olympic lifts and variations. This certification has a large practical component. Other organizations offer certifications as well. Once certified, practitioners must maintain certification by generating continuing education units (CEUs).

Thus, force increases as velocity slows and decreases as velocity increases. For example, a one-repetition maximum (1RM) bench press is performed 25 at a slow velocity. Although the individual provides as much force as possible, the overall net velocity is slow due to the high external load. Peak ISOM force occurs at 0 m/s−1 (no movement) that is larger than peak CON force. The force disparity appears related to the number of muscle cross-bridges formed once again. Actin filaments slide rapidly at fast velocities, thereby making it more difficult for myosin to form cross-bridges with actin.

An ascending strength curve is one where overall net force is lowest initially but gradually increases as the exercise progresses (Fig. 10). Many pushing exercises such as the squat, bench press, and shoulder press exemplify an ascending strength curve. In the barbell squat, the exercise is most difficult at the parallel bottom position (or Ascending Isometric torque exercise is most difficult. The area of greatest difficulty where the velocity of the weight slows down is known as the sticking region.
