Hi Glenna. Can you explain a bit about what you’re asking? Are you talking about as a trainer do I come to my client workouts with a printout of the workout? If this is what you’re asking then my answer is a definite YES. I always go to my client workouts with a pre-planned, printed workout. This helps me stay on course and allows me to economize our time together. This does NOT however mean that I will not go ‘off the page’ and present a few challenges not on the sheet of paper 🙂 Gotta keep your client’s on their toes (smile).
If you are asking a different question, please clarify.
I hope that this helps.
I don’t use a printout for exercises. I never ask my clients to do and exercise unless I show them first so they will know how it’s done correctly and also answer any questions they might have. I also don’t use printouts of the workouts either. I have them memorized before the session because this works best for me. Every trainer is different and has his/her own methods of training clients. If a printout works better for you then it’s perfectly fine to use it.
if I give clients homework, then this comes in printed form with descriptions of the exercises, most often including pictures, and well as details on weights, sets and reps.
