I’ve been working with a client for over two years. She is 47, still quite overweight due to poor food choices, but her strength is pretty good and she is proud of herself for all her gains. We do mostly free weight exercises with dumbbells, kettle balls, HIIT, circuit training. She CANNOT do tricep dips. She keeps her fingers tented and just cannot bend her elbows. Some of it might be fear of falling, but I just can’t figure this out. She is able to do other tricep exercises without problems. Any ideas on how I can help her? thanks
And I would like to apologize for the tone of the above response. I reread it again after posting it and it is not the tone I intended. I in no way wanted to convey a chastizing tone or tone of disapproval. I would definitely have worded it in a less confrontational manner if I had reread it from the point of view of a first time reader seeing the post in print without any other frame of reference. The content is valid, but the tone is not one that would make the reader receptive.
