I just hired a coach because after being out of the gym for almost 3 years, I figured it wouldn’t be a bad idea to have someone else’s eye on my training to help me get back on track. A couple years ago I had a coach that helped me achieve a lot, but unfortunately I think she programmed too many chest exercises that led to an imbalance and eventually an injury in my shoulder that still flares up from time to time 3 years later.
I made sure I mentioned this with the new coach I just started with, that I want to focus more on back and do more back exercises to chest exercises… but she just showed me the first week of my program and there’s literally more chest to back exercises
Is it truly important to have a higher ratio of back exercises to chest? Am I just being paranoid that I’ll get injured again or form an imbalance?
I guess I’m a little frustrated and torn about whether or not I should just write up my own training or not. But because of having so many years off I was really wanting someone else to guide me a bit and get comfortable again with lifting.
