If i was to train a beginner client who has no experience in the gym and their goal was to increase muscle or build strength. The best approach for that goal will be prescribing a full body muscle building program. Now i know i said full body program is the best approach but is that the first thing i train the client on ? after i meet the client for the first time and do all assessments on him/her ( fitness, posture, nutrition, strength, flexibility assessments) after that first day when he/she comes back and is ready for day 1 of training with me do i train the client from that day and on wards using the fullbody muscle building program that i created based on all results i got from assessments ? and another question if i was to train that person 2 or 3 times a week would i need to make different full body muscle building programs for each day using similar format ? or do i train the client 2 or 3 times a week using same program for each day
Hi summer and LaRue I really appreciate your help. Now I was taught that for a beginner who wants to build muscle full body programs is the most appropriate than after approximately 1month or 6 weeks change it to split so upper body and lower body than after 6weeks from there change that intosplit so chest)back, arms, legs etc.
But my.concern that I am just still worried about is I know how to make programs for each goal based on medical conditions and clients wants and needs but before that when I do the assessments and measurements do I start after that day on the program I made or do I make a body conditioning program as well to see the Clients weaknesses than after about 2-3 weeks after examining twice.a week for 2-3 weeks using the body conditioning program I than start with the actual muscle building fullbody program that I made.
And one other question What should day 1 involve not day 1 of training but before that when u meet the client and ask questions should it involve all assessments, pre exercise questionaire and a quick workout or no workout since its time consuming but that quick workout shouldnt it be a goos idea doing the body conditioning program on that day than after that start training the client using fullbody muscle building program
