What methods have you usedto teach clients that core stability (endurance) must be mastered prior to developing core strength? Often clients request to do abdominal exercises they have read about and or viewed in the gym. It “looks more fun” than the “draw in” type. How do you keep them happy and safe?
By starting at the beginning of foundation movements and progressing with variations of stability training in the initial process. I have several tests/assessments that I use to show clients whether they are ready for more intense progressions. But I don’t do the “standard” RM work, etc. in the beginning. Even my athlete clients have to start with the foundation. Some are resistant, but my results speak for me. We get past the “I want to do this new exercise” thing as soon as it comes up.
