Understanding the variables of exercise is one thing, using them with clients is another. Whether you’re a personal trainer specialising in fat loss, rehab or strength-based goals – the effectiveness of your exercise choices can dictate your client’s results.
THIS ONE-DAY EXERCISE DESIGN LAB COVERS:
- What is the strength profile during an exercise?
- How can we design an exercise that offers a full range challenge?
- How can we improve the exercise, based upon the desired outcome?
- Exercise design and setup for the individual
- Exercise cues for the best performance (goal dependent)
Using real life case studies from the Integra client vault.
THE PRINCIPLES OF EXERCISE DESIGN
From performance-based goals, to general fitness, to developing strength and resilience whilst avoiding joint wear-and-tear, we see a wide range of clients. The goal of this workshop is to leave you prepared to train all of them.
During each Exercise Design Lab we will be building exercises, analysing some of the ‘best’ exercises in the industry and busting some traditional myths along the way, as well as investigating each individual’s ability to execute each exercise. Our goal is to move on from generalised protocols, personal exercise biases and a “just do it” philosophy to a customised version of personal training.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We'll be integrating the theoretical knowledge discovered in the Foundations of Exercise Mechanics workshop.
We will present the brief. You have to figure out what questions you need answering before designing exercises for these individuals.
You will be exploring in small groups. You’ll have to decide on a direction, then you will be training a client from another group.
And it’s timed… because you don’t get 3 hours to figure this stuff out during sessions with your client.
This course is practical, bring your training gear, your ideas & questions and prepare to get stuck in.
