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?
PTonthenet has some good programming tools. An exercise library, which you can add to, and then build a workout plan for your client with as much or as little detail as you want, then email to client.
They have quite a few templates of basic workouts. When I was newer at training, I used several of these, then customized them for individual clients.
