7. I have injuries is it okay for me to train?
Yes. Whether it be a new injury or a recurring problem the best approach is going to be to come in for a consultation and discuss a sensible way to move forward, how to manage any current issue and how to mitigate the likelihood of it recurring in the future.
9. How does the how to train programme work?
The first week of the How to Train Programme is spent with a coach learning technique, rest periods, variants, and more. For the next 3 weeks, we move into our monitoring phase where you will be practicing what we went over in week 1. In week 5 we begin learning about load management and the different forms of autoregulation. Moving back into to the monitoring phase you will now have control over how much weight you will be lifting. Making your way through the alternating variables you will be learning how smart programming creates progression, and once you’ve finished the programme we have a series of templates you can move on if you wish to.
