First and foremost, confer with your client’s physician with the exercise plan that you come up with. And also, hopefully, with a physical therapist who’s working with your client
Clearly, emphasize upper body–pecs, traps, rhomboids, deltoids, biceps, triceps. grip strength. Lower body–quads, hamstrings, gastroc-soleus, anterior compartment.
When you can begin to include abdominal and lower back strenthening exercises is at the discretion of your client’s physician, but as time goes by you may be able to incorporate them into your client’s workout program.
Take care, Daniel
