Training programs should be systematic approaches. Multicomponent training programs are ideal and can lead to success while reducing the chance of injury. In order to successfully design a program for yourself you’ll need to understand the information covered in this guide such as training variables, periodization, phases and application.
To build your training program you’ll also need to know:
- What exercises are appropriate or inappropriate
- What intensities are best for your goal(s)
- How many exercises you should perform
- What set and rep range is needed
- How often you should train
When you combine all of these things with your goals and a way to measure them you create a training program custom tailored to you. That is exactly what a certified personal trainer would do for you. Something you’re now capable of. Even if you don’t want to do the work you’ll know what to look for and will be able to better articulate your needs to a trainer.
Let’s get started building your very own program.
