Know your clients and know your tools. -
Exercise selection is an important variable when it comes to programming for hypertrophy. -
Adequate exercise selection can impact on another key variables such as training volume and intensity of effort. -
Some exercises will be more taxing than others, which will impact recovery and with that how much volume per muscle group your getting. -
Also, when you’re introducing a new exercise you’re more likely to get DOMS because it’s a new stimulus.
After training for several years I have a pretty good idea of which exercises work better for me for each muscle group. -
However, with my clients, I need to pay a lot of attention to how they’re performing, recovering and also how they’re liking their program. -
When I have a client who I have worked for at least a year like Gis this process becomes easier. However, every time I introduce a new movement in her program I pay a lot of attention not only at how the movement looks but also her expression and ask her questions about how she’s feeling it. Sometimes slight adjustments need to be made so this new “suit” fits better, and others, even after trial and error you just understand that exercise it’s not for them. So you choose another tool and just keep going taking that observation into account for the future. -
