I understand this website is a great source of information from many professionals within the industry. However, when asking specific questions regarding a client (ie. What exercises should I do?) it is impossible to answer. We cannot see your client nor have we performed any type of assessment on them. Therefore, not only is difficult to answer it is potentially wrongful.
1) Propose the difficulty and ask where to refer to.
2) Ask where to find out more information regarding specifics (assessment, programming, etc.)
3) Take advantage of resources (IDEA has much to offer) and become more familiarized before working with potential clients.
Would love to hear opinions.
Other fitness professionals may know more about a given field.
Also, many of us have different approaches to the same problems given our experience, knowledge and certifications/degrees.
I’m predisposed to throwing clients in the squat rack, but on here some trainers come up with interesting ideas I’d look forward to trying on a client regarding nutrition or other exercises.
