    2. Walk Up
    Works: chest, shoulders and core
    What you need: stairs or an aerobic step
    How to do it: Facing a set of stairs, place hands shoulder-width apart and in a push-up position approximately 4 to 5 steps up. Tighten abdominals, keep torso rigid (avoid hiking up hips or letting them sag) and "walk" one hand up to the next step, bring the other hand up, and then walk the first hand and then the second back down to the starting position. Continue walking up and down 15 times on each side.
    Why you need it: This move strengthens many different muscle groups, including the core, which you use in sports such as tennis and golf and even walking, says Kristina Volkmer, MPH, ACSM clinical exercise specialist, exercise physiologist at the Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

  • What is a Clinical Exercise Physiologist?
    Home > About CEPA

    A clinical exercise physiologist (CEP) is a healthcare professional who is trained to work with patients with chronic diseases where exercise training has been shown to be of therapeutic benefit, including but not limited to cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, and metabolic disorders.

    CEPs work primarily in a medically supervised environment that provides a program or service that is directed by a licensed physician. A CEP holds a minimum of a master’s degree* in exercise physiology, exercise or movement science, or kinesiology AND is either licensed under state law or holds a professional certification from a national organization that is functionally equivalent to either the ACSM’s Certified Clinical Exercise Specialist® (CES) or ACSM’s Registered Clinical Exercise Physiologist®  (RCEP) credentials. An individual with a bachelor’s degree in exercise physiology, exercise or movement science, or kinesiology and certified as an ACSM Certified Clinical Exercise Specialist® is also considered qualified to perform exercise physiology services.

    (* individuals with bachelors degrees in exercise science AND who held the ACSM CES or RCEP certification or equivalent prior to July 1, 2010 are considered Clinical Exercise Physiologists).
