    Personal Trainers guide to improving Chin ups

    Personal Trainers guide to improving Chin ups Designing the ideal workout program can be enormously challenging for the novice personal trainer, but keeping the following in mind will ensure great results: A chain will only be as strong as its weakest link - strengthen that weak link and the chain becomes far stronger. For many people, especially women the weakest link in their chin-up training can be found in the bottom quarter of the range. This is when the chin-up is started from the extended elbow position and the limiting factor is the strength of the elbow flexors. The Weak Points The four main elbow flexors are the biceps brachii, brachioradialis, brachialis, and ....

    Programming as a Personal Trainer

    A Guide To Programming as Personal Trainer It is essential to concentrate on collecting as much information about the sports and their nuanced requirements when a personal trainer starts to train an athlete. The gathered information ensures athletes can be shaped around the sports foundation and the myriad of complex interactions between all elements. It's not enough to simply add resistance to the movement you observe. Take a hockey slapshot as an example. I've seen plenty of custom setups invented to try and train the slap shot. One particular setup comes to mind – a guy just attached a high pulley to the lower end of a hockey stick, trying to mimic the movement. In my ....

    Personal Training to Improve Bench Press Sticking Points

    Addressing Issues With the Common Bench Press There are few exercises that are as popular as the bench press, nevertheless it is essential to fully understand the dynamics of this exercise if you hope to continue increasing kilos to the bar. I have spent nearly the last 2 decades performing this exercise in gyms as a personal trainer on a daily basis. I have very rarely seen this exercise executed properly. This could be why it is common for people to tear ligaments and shoulder muscles while performing this exercise. Another factor that contributes to an increased propensity for injury would be overusing this exercise. If you were to drop by any gym on a Monday, you will see ....

    The Best ways to grow your arms

    Providing All The Answers To Your Arm Training Questions One time my mentor shared with me his doubts on the significance of a lot of books and articles written by most personal trainers and coaches in weightlifting. According to him, the most proficient personal trainers lack time to write because they are professionally engaged in their work. Which I believe is true. When you’re in the trenches training 10 clients per day as we do I don’t know how they have time to write a book. This means most of the information in the books and blogs may not be what the trainers are teaching their clients and athletes. Similarly, I doubt the content that is generated every day on ....

    The Benefits of Contrast Training

    Contrast Training Personal trainers or Strength and conditioning coaches have a common challenge when designing workouts for pro athletes. They must find the most efficient way to build up their strength because they often do not have much time in-between seasons. The timeline is even tighter if the athlete incurred injury during the season because before there is any discussion about building strength, the personal trainer must tend to the injuries first to make sure that they are completely healed. Otherwise, going through strength building before the body is ready will cause more harm than good. Because time is short, the strength and conditioning coach cannot waste any time with ....

    Step ups to improve Squat Strength

    Step ups for Personal Trainers Most personal trainers will have you focus on just squats as the primary leg exercise. This article may change your mind on that. I am not here to suggest that your personal trainer should stop your squat program and only do Bulgarian lunges. Sometime however that seems the intent of a very popular "functional” personal trainer . But I am going to extend beyond the simple approach when it comes to training that states that the more effective schedule for all trainees, no matter what their athletic or physical goals are, should start with a full set of squats, and the trainee should be performing squats in each training phase.

With this goal in mind, I took to the study of how the people who had Herculean strength, train. My Mentor Charles Poliquin told me to research Chuck Sipes.

They called him the "Iron Knight" and he was the winner of the 1960 IFBB Mr. America, IFBB Mr.Universe, 1960, and was placed second behind the winner of the title of the IFBB Mr. Olympia, 1967.

    Personal Training using Circuits

    Personal Training using Circuits One system of muscle building that rarely gets its well-deserved attention is circuit training. About 50 years ago, this method of muscle training was seen in high schools and practiced in jungle gyms with various stations. Personal Trainers weren’t really using this method. It was more for strength coaches. A more recent application of weight training circuits are the sections to the back of the commercial gym, where senior citizens can engage in a half-hour of general fitness without pulling muscles or suffering fatigue and usually without a personal trainer.

    The Personal Training approach to training women

    It is no stretch of the imagination to see that women who train properly can reach incredibly high levels of strength and power. Naturally, there are some important differences between male and female physiology. This may be the reason that men have a naturally higher potential for reaching greater muscle mass. For personal trainers there is a few factors to consider. There is a speed component in weightlifting, therefore it is considered a powersport. Women’s records reach about 80% of the records held by men. The absolute world record held by women in the snatch is 160kgs and 200 kgs in the clean and jerk.

There were 2 career changing and series ending injuries that occurred in Games 5 and 6 that changed the dynamic of the gameplay. One injury happened to a player who most will agree at the time was the best player on the planet, Kevin Durant. The other injury was to one of the greatest 3 point shooters of all time Klay Thompson. Injuries to the highest performing ....
