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 KARIN AND JEFF
Thank you very much for sharing such great info. Ok so i do workout myself and i do understand different medical conditions and what i have to do in regards to those type of conditions. What i get confused about isnt that its just when i meet the client for the first time this is what i have in mind. First day is Pre exercise questionnaire to check on current health and medical conditions and after that i do fitness assessments. Now the next time i see them i start immediately with the training programs i created for that client. Do need to do anything before starting the program since i checked their health and fitness level etc ? and in regards to training routines for a beginner client that i train 3 times a week i will be training them based on 3 different exercise programs but with the same format and level of difficulty e.g legs, chest, back, shoulders, abs, lower back. Do you think thats a good approach ?
