As a new trainer I’m reading a ton of different books and articles on creating workouts and programming and different ways trainers create their workouts and programs for clients. With each one I get caught up in it and feel mine should be created that way, when instead I strive to build confidence in my own workouts and how I would initially plan a program. My question is how did you (more established trainers) come into your own in planning your clients programming?
Always make sure that you’re doing more progressing of exercises then regression, that way the client is creating mastery of such said exercise. Also knowing what the clients goals are can help steer you in exercise selection when programming. All the reading in the world wont help unless you start putting some of these theories into practice. Do what you feel confident in the “Tell, Show, Do” when training your client. Keep them safe, sweaty and happy!
