This video will uncover and explain the realities of aging and the functional issues that many older adults (50+) face. As trainers, we must have the knowledge necessary to modify our exercise prescriptions in order for them to be appropriate for our clients' current state and training goals using MicroProgression™ and constant assessment. Joint wear, range of motion, muscular imbalance/inhibition, bone loss, inflammation and deconditioning realities are some of the topics that will be discussed in this in-depth workshop.
