DescriptionThis course focuses on the program design specifics for the Sedentary, Beginner, and Older Adult Client. The ultimate goal of most clients that fall under the three categories listed above is to increase their wellbeing, loose some fat, tone up, and decrease medical health risk factors. While traditional selectorized machine protocols serve a base of safe resistance training in the non-supervised population, those same protocols rarely address the muscular imbalances and physiological needs of the client with atrophied mitochondrial elements, decreased range of motion, and a rusty motor unit activation mechanism. In this class you will be guided through a 60 minute instructor led PowerPoint presentation covering all the physiological needs of a new or older adult client and then participate in 5 different workout protocols already prepared for your use.
ObjectivesThe Student will be able to Name the atrophied components of the client’s energy systems Identify the priority of the skeletal muscle exercise selection Know how to incorporate functional protocols for maximum motor unit recruitment Progress or regress any of the five example workouts
