Are "5 Hour Energy" drinks good for you?

13 Answers | Asked by Angela Cordoni on Jul 12, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

I think that they are just an expensive 'pick me up.' There is no clinical research that I'm aware of to substantiate the marketing claims. It's all anecdotal. I suggest to clients to drink a glass of water and eat a banana. It's a great pre-workout ingestion.

Pre-workout energy supplements, good or bad?

11 Answers | Asked by Gus Aguirre on Sep 09, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

I think that perhaps a cup of coffee and a banana are a good pre-workout ingestion. I'm not a big fan of the more expensive supplements that have not been tested in peer-reviewed trials.

If a client threw up in a session, would you feel good about yourself or bad?

22 Answers | Asked by Jonathan Amos on Jun 12, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

Good answers. I would first suggest to my client that he/she see his/her physician to make certain that there is not a GI infection contributing to the vomiting. Working hard should not make us vomit.

What Do You Do If Your Client Comes To His Session With A Bad Attitude After A Bad Day?

19 Answers | Asked by Sandy Todd Webster on Apr 27, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

We all have a 'bad day.' When your client shows up it's an indication that he/she needs a vent. Just be understanding and professional. Focus on the workout, not the stressful event.

Head up or down in a squat?

12 Answers | Asked by Sarah Artha Negara on Nov 22, 2013

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

Good answers. I favor the neck in neutral posture throughout the movement. Looking down can definitely affect balance. Neck extension, looking up, puts an overload on muscles extraneous to the exercise.

Squats for legs

4 Answers | Asked by Rodela Nakao on May 09, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

I think that squats are a great exercise. I don't know that you actually asked a question, but I recommend that for most of your clients squats to 90 degrees of knee flexion are the best. The post-patellar pressure past 90 degrees of flexion isn't worth it.

How does the subjective assessment guide as far as individualized program design is concerned?

8 Answers | Asked by Joanne Duncan-Carnesciali on Oct 30, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 08, 2015

I agree with the responses given. The, as you call it, subjective assessment is the foundation on which you develop the program design for your client. The types of exercise have to be matched to your client's skills and preferences.

'Weigh In': Jumping Rope vs. Rowing

12 Answers | Asked by Bill Taylor on Apr 04, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 07, 2015

Great responses. Choosing depends on your client. Rowing (low impact) is relatively easy on the body, with the possibility of significant cardiovascular overload. Skipping rope (high impact) can be intense but if your client is able its a great addition to the cardiovascular regimen. Take care...

Is there a cardio assessment I could do with a jump rope?

5 Answers | Asked by Jeremy Rivers on Apr 11, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 07, 2015

I am not aware of any clinical protocol that has been peer-reviewed. But as the great responses suggest just do it on your own. Take care.

Does anyone have a gym climbing rope in their facility? If so what is your policy on who and how it can be used?

4 Answers | Asked by Jocelyn Ritti on Jul 02, 2015

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Jul 07, 2015

It is high risk. You can write a policy that climbing always has to be supervised, but you know that it will be taken with little weight. I would suggest that unless you can have someone always supervising the ropes take them out. Good luck.
