103 - Program Design: How to Excel at Designing Individualized Exercise Programs for Optimal Client Results (L)

Carl Weston

Exercise is like a drug: in the right quantities at the right time, it can help. In the wrong quantities at the wrong time it can hurt. A key skill for any fitness professional is designing individualized exercise programs that lead to optimal performance for all clients - and this seminar is designed to teach you just that! You'll learn how to combine and manipulate acute exercise variables; not just reps and sets, but loads, tempo, and rest periods. We'll cover periodization concepts and look at real case histories to help you understand these critical factors. Move beyond the 'one-program-fits-all' approach and leave with an understanding of how to use the science of selecting acute exercise variables to create effective programs for your clients.
