“Evidence-based position statements provide the platform for safe and effective exercise prescription for all populations. The ACSM’s guidelines are widely used in this course, though the recommendations of other leading local bodies should not be overlooked (e.g. ESSA, ASCA, SMA). Importantly, these resources are ‘guidelines’ not rules and should be interpreted and applied to best fir your given scenario.”
