Building muscle is at once very simple and simultaneously incredibly complicated.
If that sounds like something of a frustrating contradiction… well
then get used to it! As you learn more about growing muscle and getting
jacked you’ll find that almost all the information you come across only
makes things more complicated and more difficult. Everyone has a different
opinion and no-one seems able to agree on what the best way to get into
powerful shape actually is.

When you start out though, it all seems very straightforward. In order to
grow, you need to exercise more and eat more protein. When you do this,
you start to build more muscle and you see yourself constantly increase in
strength. If you aren’t seeing any growth or strength gains, then it might
well simply mean that you aren’t going to the gym regularly enough, or
working out hard enough when you are there!

What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
