Devise a 4 week resistance training program for John, 70. John has never done any resistance training before but has cycled 20km on 3 days of the week for the past decade. He has noticed that his leg and upper body strength is declining and he wants to arrest this if possible.
Follow Dr Westcott’s recommendations when devising the program.
Be sure to indicate sets, reps and load for resistance exercises and frequency, intensity, time and type for cardio
It does look like a question from a test. And just like other similar questions there is really not much information provided in order to give a good answer. This is a very generic question because in the real world an assessment would be required to assess the client and come up with a more accurate answer/program. Also the medical and health history are missing.
