Best way to train the extremely frail

11 Answers | Asked by Kimberly Hawkinson-Hellyar on May 06, 2015

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

Great answers. Gently is the word that first comes to mind. Sets and reps and overload are out the window. Just using your client's own body weight is most likely the best resistance. Suspicion, but perhaps ROM is also an issue. Just doing the exercises, using body weight as the resistance, may...

Whats the best program for muscle imbalance of the extremities? Ex. Right arm is bigger than the left.

6 Answers | Asked by Marie Chris Sison on Apr 25, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

Predominant limbs are typically 'bigger' because they get used more. You can build in balance with your strength training program. There's absolutely nothing wrong with including resistance load unilaterally to the non-predominant limb. Good luck.

Why is my left bicep bigger than my right?

10 Answers | Asked by Gus Aguirre on Nov 01, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

As suggested, because you likely use elbow flexion, shoulder flexion more on the predominant side. Balance it with strength training on the non-predominant side, if it's important. Take care.

My left Lat is bigger than my right, what can I do?

9 Answers | Asked by Tom Thumb on Sep 18, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

All good answers. I like seated, unilateral pull-downs using the high pulley on the lat machine. To fully load shoulder adduction and, especially, shoulder girdle depression, I think the seated position on a lat-pull machine is the best. Be sure to use a resistance that takes the target muscles t...

I need a bigger BUTT! HELP!!!

13 Answers | Asked by Patty Hartong on Nov 08, 2011

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

Interesting answers. To load the gluteus maximus you have to resist hip extension. Some good exercises have been suggested. My favorite, standing hip extension, unilateral, using the low pulley. Make sure you do full ROM, to temporary failure. Keep the support knee slightly flexed throughout th...

Latin Nutrition help needed!

7 Answers | Asked by Kimberly Chase on Mar 19, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

Miroslava, I will try it tonight! Sounds scrumptious. True latin meals, as George suggests, are high in complex cabs, some protein and minimal saturated fat. Too bad we mix it with all the fats and oils in the fast-food business. Just make it at home. Miroslava gives us a great roadmap. T...

Is hot yoga safe for people with lower back pain?

7 Answers | Asked by Lisa Coffee-Smith on Feb 07, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

I'm not sure what you mean by "hot" yoga. Is that more of the astanga (sp?) type? Movement, especially loaded, certainly adds stress to the lower back. Stretching after the workout is best, the soft tissues are warmed-up. Typically I recommend supine single-knee, single-knee, double-knee. As fa...

stretches for low back pain

4 Answers | Asked by Utahna Miller on Jun 17, 2014

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

Good answers. Assuming that you have been in contact with your client's physical therapist, I like the single-knee, single-knee, double knee, in a supine position. Follow with a full body stretch in the supine position. Take care.

4 Answers | Asked by DOBGIMA FONMBOH on Mar 10, 2012

Answered by Daniel Kosich on Mar 03, 2016

Great answers. Motion is 'lotion.' I would only add that it would be advisable to contact your client's physical therapist in case there are considerations particular to your client that you will need to incorporate into your program design. Good luck.
