Understanding a program and having a coach that does….
Should it be important??? We think so!
When you read a program from a whiteboard/online / social media can you understand the meaning or context of what is shown. Does it just look cool and sexy? Will it help you improve your goals or weaknesses or will it just make a good picture for social media! Are you then going to copy that exercise/program not knowing the reasoning or where the program will take you!
Understanding exercise selection / volume and intensity / frequency and irregularity / time domains and energy systems etc. comes from knowledge and study of these topics! Having a coach that understands the wants and needs of a client or group, that designs a program for their needs, is the best way to improve yourself! Always make sure that a coach is present during a training sessions!!!! How can a coach from a different gym or country program for a person they have never met???
For example, do you know the difference between what is being prescribed here- i.e. 1RM – 1HS – 1@95% or 188.8.131.52.1.1 they all look different but all have the same ultimate goal in mind, lift heavy for 1 rep. The way it is written dictates how you feel about it, and understanding the goal makes the session easier.
Always try to find a knowledgeable local coach to help you reach your potential.
