This is pathetic.
Isn’t your job as a personal trainer to help this guy achieve his goals?
Why don’t you give him a program that works instead of this crap that you posted?[/quote]
Unfortunately, most personal trainers jobs are sacraficed for the immediate job of trying to eat and make money. Nothing seems to work more for the average client then making them sore for the first workout. They go home and say wow he really worked me.
OP if this is something you care about and want to last long in, listen to Goodfellow and pay attention to the clients goal, then focus on that. If what you do makes him sore great, but if not long as it accomplishes the goal.
There are a million bicep exercises and most work the same muscles, it’s not always what you do but how you do it. Your attention to detail and what you accomplish is what makes you a great pt. It can be something little like bending the wrist in or double lift at the top of a movement that will change the effectiveness. Most of all it’s how you motivate him to lift. Screaming in somebodies ear can make them lift 50 more pounds and 50 more reps, your job is to motivate him to excel and blast through his goals.
