How do you deadlift? Conventional or sumo? Having pulled both ways conventional is what I like now. It seems to not aggravate the hips as much.
Conventional. I was planning on working on sumo this upcoming month though.
I just glanced at your profile and you’re a personal trainer? Now I feel compelled to ask you what your qualifications are and how is it that you help clients when they hit roadblocks. Are you employed at a gym?[/quote]
The clients that I get are massively out of shape and don’t require a Thib to train. They simply require the basics, an understanding of how to hit all of the muscles in a structured fashion, periodize a program, manage a diet, and understand how to intelligently continue to benefit from cardio.
Most of them don’t even have the coordination to begin to pull off a deadlift when I meet them.
How do I get them through road blocks? Well, so far I haven’t run into a road block. They are all gaining strength by the week, improving coordination by leaps and bounds every time I work with them, and I’m periodizing their cardio and weight training so they don’t hit plateaus. No one has stopped loosing weight or gain muscle yet.
If I do run into a plateau, I will be talking with the head trainer at my gym, and consulting all of the numerous resources available to me.
And that’s also why I ask for detailed explanations on here if someone recommends something. I will have to explain it in the future, so I need as much data as possible
