[edit] Group 3 - Meredith Janzen, Elliott, Logan, Crystal & Ben

[edit] Initial Consult

Wed Sept 25, 2013. Logan and Elliott attended.


What are the goals wished to achieve throughout this program?

Client desires to be able to construct a personal fitness plan that can be implemented from home; general fitness of all categories: full body, strength, cardiovascular, flexibility, etc. Emphasis on improved core strength. Client also would like to have measurable gains and discover different ways to observe successes.

Previous injuries/allergies/medications

Client speculates having bursitis of the hip, thus limited running capabilities; hip tends to cease after a long duration. Client is an 'excessive pronator' and has high arches; orthotics are worn. Food allergies; only if ingested.

Previous history with exercise

Client is frequently active; works out 5 days weekly for 1 hour/day. At peak, client was doing exercises twice each day.

Fitness strengths and weaknesses

Client is strong with cardiovascular fitness; though mentioned that there is certainly room for improvement. Client is a strong cyclist and would like to train to be an avid cyclist. Client is not able to run for a long duration due to pain from bursitis and high arches. Expressed a need to improve general strength, mainly core focus.

Preferred workout/muscle group/exercise

Client would like to engage in exercises that engage strength, core, and cardio; utilize minimal equipment, be adaptable to schedule, i.e. can be done at home, and incorporate body weight exercises.

Preferred method of communication

e-Mail

Availability

Weekdays between 12:00 and 1:00 pm, excluding Mondays. Also available alternating weekends.

Expected frequency/duration of sessions

Client would like to meet twice a week for 1 hour durations each; with a home work-out schedule incorporated. Initial suggestion was as follows: Mondays - Participation in spin class; no meeting necessary. Tuesdays and Fridays - 1 hour sessions at Brock Zone facility. Wednesdays and Thursdays - 1 hour program to be completed at home; no meeting necessary

Other comments

Client has noted that previous fitness goals have not been met, therefor would like to see results while also setting realistic goals, and using various measures of fitness.

[edit] Pre-Assessment

Tuesday, Oct 1, 2013 - 11am

Meredith and Logan Attended

The goal of the assessment was to evaluate KVD's various level of fitness, and use these results to construct a training program.

[edit] Vital Measures and Body Composition

  • KVD had a resting heart rate of 96bpm
  • KVD has a BMI of 21.20
    • BMI=weight(kg)/height2(m)
    • BMI=57.79kg/1.651m2
    • BMI=21.2
[1]







[edit] Warm up

  • 3 minute warm up on a stationary bike.
  • Dynamic stretching.
  • Walking lunges with a twist: The client steps forward with the right leg into a low lunge position. They then reach the right arm back, aiming to touch the left heel. This is held for 2-3 seconds. The lunge is performed 3 times for each leg.
[2]









  • Pick the Daisies - Hamstring Stretch: The client steps forward with the right leg, and dorsiflexes the foot. The client then flexes the trunk forward, sweeping down and then back up. During the 'sweeping' phase, both arms should be hanging along side the trunk, and then sweep forward past the outstretched foot. This movement should last about 2-3 seconds. This is performed three times on each side. The image below shows the starting position.
[3]













  • Alligators: The client stands with their arms extended in front of them. The client then horizontally abducts both shoulders at the same time, keeping the elbows extended, as well as adducting the scapulae. The shoulders are then adducted back in to the starting position. This is all done in one fluid motion. This movement is performed 10 times.
[4]











  • Hugs: The client starts with their arms extended in front of them, shoulder width apart. The client then adducts their shoulders, so the arms cross over each other, and grab the opposing shoulder. The shoulders are then abducted back in to the starting position. Similarly to the "alligators", this should be done in one fluid motion, and will be repeated 10 times.
[5]










[edit] Strength Testing

  • Push-Up Test
    • The client starts lying prone on the ground. The hands are then positioned beneath the shoulders, at or slightly wider than shoulder width. Keeping the core tight, the client then pushes her body up off the ground with the arms. The legs, glutes and back should all be in line. Once the elbows are fully extended, the top of the push-up has been reached. The client then lowers herself back towards the ground so that her elbows are flexed at roughly a 90 degree angle. The client then pushes herself back up again. That is one rep.
    • The client is tested on how many push-ups they can perform in 1 minute.
    • KVD performed 10 push-ups in one minute.
    • 10 push ups is ranked as 'average'.
[6]
[7]












  • Wall-Sit Test
    • The client stands against a wall with their feet shoulder width apart. They then slide down the wall so that both their knees and hips are flexed at 90 degrees. The client holds this position until exhaustion. The client will keep her feet flat on the ground and maintain the alignment between the knees and ankles. The trunk should remain flat against the wall and make sure your knees do not go past your toes.
[8]
    • KVD held the wall sit position for 41 seconds.
    • Her score is described as average.













  • Partial Curl-Up Test
    • The client performs partial curl-ups to exhaustion (with a maximum of 25), in time with a metronome at 50 bpm.
    • Start by lying supine. Your knees should be flexed at 90 degrees, with your feet flat on the floor. Extend your arms on either side of your body, with your palms flat on the floor. The head and back are lifted off of the floor so that the hands move forward about 2 inches. Bring the head neck and back, onto the ground again. That is one rep.
[9]
    • KVD completed 19 curl ups in cadence with the metronome.
    • Her score was described as very good.









[edit] Flexibility Testing

  • Sit and Reach Test

The client sits up with their legs extended. They then reach their arms and trunk forward as far as possible, keeping both hands in contact. The "zero point" which is located at the heels, is set to 15in.

KVD reached 22in, which is described as 'excellent'.

[10]







[edit] Balance Testing

  • Stork Stand
    • The client stands with one foot on the ground and the other resting on the inside of the knee. The client then lifts the standing leg so that they are balancing on their toes. This position is timed and held until the raised heel, or the raised leg touches the ground and balance is lost.
    • KVD stood for 5 seconds on the right leg, and 3 seconds on the left leg.
    • This is described as below average for both legs.
[11]
[12]

















[edit] Cardiovascular Testing

  • Rockport Walking Test

KVD walked 1 mile (1.6km) in 14:32. The recorded heart rate immediately following the test was 130bpm.

  • The estimated VO2 max is 40.15 ml/kg/min, which is described as 'superior'.
    • VO2max=132.853-(0.0769x(weight))-(0.3877xage)-(6.315xgender)-(3.2649xtime)-(0.1565xHR)
    • VO2max=132.853-(0.0769x(127.4lbs))-(0.3877x39)-(6.315x0)-(3.2649x14.53min)-(0.1565x130bpm)
    • VO2max=40.15ml/kg/min
[13]

[edit] Cool Down

  • 3 minute low intensity cool down on stationary bike.
  • Static stretching - stretches will be held for 20-30 seconds.
  • Standing quadriceps stretch
    • Stand up straight, the wall can be used to maintain stability during this stretch. Lift up the right leg and hold your right foot in your right hand so that the bottom of the foot is facing the ceiling. Pull the foot as close as you can to the right buttocks so that tension is felt in the quadriceps. Push your pelvis forward to further the stretch. Hold for the designated amount of time. Repeat with the opposite leg.
[14]
  • Seated hamstring and calf stretch

Sit on the ground with the right leg extended in front of you and the left leg fully flexed at the knee, with the sole of the left foot pressed against the side of the right thigh. Lean forward and reach for your right foot with both hands, flexing at the hip. Flex as far forward as possible so that tension is maintained, but no pain is felt. Dorsiflex the right foot as well to stretch the right calf at the safe time. Hold this for the designated period of time and then repeat with the left leg forward.

[15]
  • Seated butterfly groin stretch
    • Sit on the ground with your legs extended. Pull both legs in towards the middle of your body so that your knees are flexed, and pointing to either side. To increase the tension of the stretch, lower both knees closer to the ground while holding your feet close to the body.
  • Shoulder stretch
    • Extend your right arm and bring it across the front of your body. Using your right arm/hand, hold your right arm against your body. Hold this stretch for the designated period of time and then repeat with the opposite arm.
  • Standing bicep stretch
    • Stand with both arms behind the back and hands clasped. Straighten both arms and raise them upward until tension can be felt in the biceps.
[16]
  • Standing tricep stretch
    • Stand with your back straight. Place one hand behind your back so that your elbow is straight up in the air. With your other hand, press down on your forearm to further the stretch.
[17]

[edit] S.M.A.R.T. Goals

We have set in place 7 goals that we intend on using for motivational purposes, and we hope help our client achieve each of these goals throughout the duration of our program. Our goals address measurable gains that can be attained throughout multiple categories of fitness. The general goal of KVD is to improve her overall muscular endurance; we intend to do this by focusing on the components of core strength and endurance, upper body endurance, and leg endurance individually. Each of the 3 components will have 1 on-site training day per week designated specifically to that muscle group, as well as some overlap of muscle groups during a prescribed home exercise regimen 1-2 times per week.

[edit] Core Training Goal

For core endurance, we aim to help our client raise her repetitions in the curl-up test from 19 to 25. We will improve her core capabilities by doing one day a week of pure core focus, as well as exercises throughout other days which engage the core muscles synergistically i.e., balance, cardiovascular activity, back/chest/leg training etc. The idea is if we can increase her repetitions and duration of multiple exercises in the core domain, her curl-up score will subsequently be increased. 25 curl-ups is the highest score attainable for this test done in cadence with a metronome, we are optimistic with KVD achieving this upon the final assessment of the program.

[edit] Upper Body Training Goal

Our focus for KVD's upper body endurance is to have her able to perform (by the half way mark of the program) 5 more reps within 1 minute in the push-up test, and ~ 10 by the end of the program. Emphasis is on the performance of a push-up with the proper form; flat back, from the toes, not knees. We hope to achieve this by directly working on upper body strength once a week as well as targeting the upper body muscles as synergists in other exercises. Focus will be given to training the biceps muscles; we expect that the effects of strengthening KVD's core will also assist in improving her push-up capabilities.

[edit] Leg Training Goal

Upon the completion of the program, we also hope to have our client capable of holding a wall sit for ~ 1 minute; an increase of 20 seconds from her initial score. As with the other categories of fitness, we will be targeting leg endurance once a week. In conjunction with this, KVD will be taking part in 3 spin classes per week which lend a significant support to improving leg endurance (as well as cardiovascular endurance).

[edit] Flexibility Goal

Throughout the daily stretching both before and after each workout, and the prescription of stretches to perform on a regular basis, we aim to improve our clients flexibility where possible, and instill practices that will help her to maintain her already adequate flexibility in the future. Our goal is to have KVD score 2-3 inches higher on the sit and reach flexibility test upon the end assessment of our program.

[edit] Cardiovascular Training Goal

Our client expressed a strong interest in knowing and monitoring her VO2 capabilities throughout the program. The value calculated from the Rockport Walking Test is an above average score for non-athletic individuals of KVD's age and gender, however her intentions are to continue after our program as an avid cyclist. Her score places her within the "Good" parameter among all females of her age, our intention is to work towards getting her as close as possible to that next parameter, "excellent' which requires a VO2 value higher than 45 ml/kg/min. The majority of the cardiovascular training will come directly from the 3/week spin classes, with some other cardio work coming from circuits and home workouts throughout.

[edit] Balance Training Goal

As a result of training other components of fitness, core and leg strength/endurance particularly, we hope to also improve our clients balance. We think an improvement in duration of the stork stand test of 15 seconds is a feasible improvement, set to accomplish upon the closing of the 6 week program.

[edit] Personal Side Goal

KVD has expressed a strong determination to be able to perform a move during the spin class involving standing cycling without the support of her arms on the handles. We would like to have her capable of maintaining this position for 10 seconds by the end of the program. The difficulty with performing this tasks comes from a pain felt in the knees of our client, and a lack of core endurance. To tend to this, we will be working on tightening the core muscles to improve stability, and strengthening the knee joint to reduce the stress placed on the knees during this exercise

[edit] First Session

Thursday October 3. 11:00 A.M.- 12:00 P.M. Crystal and Elliott Attended

[edit] Session Goal

  • Being the first session we wanted our client to get familiar with machines as well as other types of exercises, but we focused on the lower body to develop endurance type muscles.

[edit] Warm up

  • Aprox. 10 minutes on bike at comfortable pace.

[edit] Lower Body workout

  • Lunges
    • Body weight only
    • Client would go into lunge position(trunk straight up, front knee nearly 90 degrees and back knee slightly bent) focusing on form as well as breathing.
    • 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
[18]









  • Hamstring Curls with resistance.
    • The client lays prone on the bench with the knees just hanging over the end of the bench, and the lower legs resting underneath the level pads. Grasp the handles, and bring the lever pad up towards the glutes by flexing at the knees. Slowly lower the pad back down to the starting position by extending the knees.
[19]
    • 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
    • Set 1, 30 lbs, Set 2 & 3, 40lbs
    • Client chose comfortable weight to complete the exercise with no deviation in form. She began with 30lbs for the first set or repetitions and increased to 40lbs for the last two sets of repetitions.






  • Squats.
    • Start in a full standing position. To start the movement move the hips back, keeping your chest and head up. Bend at the knees so that your thighs are parallel to the ground. Keep a flat back throughout the movement. Be sure that your knees do not move ahead of your toes. Reduce the depth of the squat if necessary to keep proper form. Stand back up extending the knees and bringing the hips forward again. You can bring your arms forward as you lower into the squat for balance.
[20]
    • 3 sets of 10 repetitions.
    • Client focusing on form as well as breathing. She performed "deep squats" at the beginning but she informed us of recent knee pains so she was advised to lessen the angle. She continued to perform the squats by keeping the femur above horizontal.







  • Leg Press
    • Sit on the seat of the machine with your back and head against the padded support. Place both feet flat against the footplate so that the the knees are flexed at 90 degrees, and your feet hip width apart. The knees should be in line with the feet. Grasp the handles and push the plate forward by extending your knees and hips. Don't fully extend your knees to prevent them from locking. Keep your abdominal muscles tight during this movement, and keep your feet flat against the place. Slowly bring the plate back towards your body by flexing your knees and hips, keeping your feet flat on the plate. That is one rep
    • Completed at 80 lbs resistance
[21]
    • 2 sets of 10 repetitions. Client chose comfortable weight to complete the exercise with no deviation in form








[edit] Cool Down

  • Head to toe stretching including standing while stretching hamstrings and then moving to weightless stretches on the ground. Focusing primarily on legs because that was the muscle group done.

General Notes: Client had a slight irritation within her right patella. We ensured that the weight she was doing was adequate and that she wasn't experiencing any further discomfort. Towards the end of the exercise for the leg press, we were trying to aim for another set, but her knee was experiencing further discomfort. After the concluding stretch she wasn't experiencing this discomfort. Crystal provided different exercises that our client could perform at home later on in our session. Such as the tip-toed squats to increase balance, core strength as well as leg strength, as well as the jockey step which is a modified squat, that increases the foot speed at a comfortable rate. As well as the side lunge kick which works to improve lower body strength and core strength. This exercise works her gluts, quadriceps, external obliques and balance.

[edit] Second Session

Tuesday Oct 8 - 11am Meredith and Logan attended The Zone

  • Goal
    • The goal is to determine the starting point for various upper body exercises utilizing machines or free weights as well as work on upper body muscular endurance.

  • Standing bicep stretch
  • Standing triceps stretch
  • Wall chest stretch
    • Stand next to a wall. Extend your arm on the side of the wall behind so it is pressed against the wall with the palm facing the wall. Hold this position for 20-30 seconds. Repeat on the other side.
[35]








[edit] Third Session - Home Workout

Wednesday October 9, 2013

  • Goal: To increase core strength and endurance with a 20 minute circuit workout to do over the weekend.

[edit] Warm up

  • Jumping Jacks - 25
    • Start standing with your feet together, and your arms hanging long the side of your body. From this position, jump a few inches into the air, spreading your legs slightly wider than shoulder width, and raising your arms up above your head. Immediately after, jump again, bringing your arms and legs back to their starting position. Repeat this 25 times. It is important to keep the jumps low and controlled, and staying light on your feet to reduce impact.
[36]










  • High Knees - 20 per leg
    • Start in a standing position with your elbows bent at 90 degrees, so that your upper arms are rested along the torso, and your forearms are extended in front of the body. Face your palms downward. Bring your right knee up towards the right palm by flexing at the hip and at the knee. Once the right knee makes contact with the right palm, extend the knee and the hip, bringing the foot back onto the ground. At the same time as you are lowering the right leg, bring the left knee up to the left palm, flexing the left hip and knee. Once contact is made between the left knee and left palm, bring the left leg back to the ground, and the right leg back up again. Repeat this pattern so that each knee is raised 20 times. It is important to keep soft feet throughout the exercise.
[37]







  • Wood Chops - 20 per side
    • Start by standing with your feet shoulder width apart. Have both arms extended above the head on one side of the body. In a quick motion, lower the arms together diagonally across the body, slightly below the waist. During this motion there is also a slight bend at the knees, and a rotation of the trunk to the same side the arms are moving to. This should all be one fluid motion. Then bring both arms, the knees and the trunk back to their original position. Repeat this motion 20 times, and then do the same for the other side.
[38]









[edit] Workout

  • This workout will be a circuit. The exercises are to be completed in the order listed. Rest time between each exercise should be 10-15 seconds. One run through of each exercise is one set. Rest time after each set is 45 seconds. 3 total sets will be performed to complete the circuit.
  1. Plank – 45 sec-
  2. Superman’s – 15 reps -
  3. Partial Curl-up – 15 reps - Start by lying supine. Your knees should be flexed at 90 degrees, with your feet flat on the floor. Extend your arms on either side of your body, with your palms flat on the floor. The head and back are lifted off of the floor so that the hands move forward about 2 inches. Bring the head neck and back, onto the ground again. That is one rep. Perform 15 reps.
  4. Hip Hike/Glute Bridges – 15 reps -
  5. Oblique Crunches – 15 reps per side -
  • This completes one whole set. 2 more sets will be performed to complete the workout.
  • Notes
  1. All exercises were both explained and demonstrated at the previous session
  2. Descriptions and pictures were also provided in the document sent to KVD

[edit] Cool Down

  • Standing oblique stretch

Stand with your feet shoulder width apart, and toes facing forward. Lengthen your back and raise both arms above your head. Gently lean the upper body to one side so that tension is felt along the torso. Hold this stretch for 30 second. Repeat on the other side.














  • Cobra

Start by lying prone, with your elbows flexed and your palms resting on the ground below your shoulders. The tops of your feet and your hips should be resting on the ground, with your knees slightly raised off of the ground. Keeping your palms on the ground, extend your elbows, bringing your torso off of the ground. Extend your trunk so that your back is rounded. Hold this position for 30 seconds.









  • Seated Back Stretch

Sit up in a chair, with your knees flexed and 90 degrees and your feet rested on the floor. Flex your trunk, so that it is resting on your thighs and bring your arms down to the ground. Hold this position for 30 seconds.

[39]












[edit] Fourth Session - Home Workout

Sent on Sunday October 13, 2013

[edit] Warm up

  • Standing Shoulder stretches
  • Standing Quadriceps stretches
  • Seated Hamstring stretches
  • Butterfly Stretch
  • Seated Ankle Rolls
    • Sit with one leg outstretched in front of you. Rotate the ankle counterclockwise ~10 times, and then counterclockwise ~10 times. The rotation of the ankle should be as big and exaggerated as possible, moving through a full range of motion. Then repeat with the other ankle.
[40]







  • 10-15 minute bike ride (if weather is adequate)

[edit] Workout

Upper Body:

  • Standing Row with Resistance Band

Choose appropriate weight/ or appropriate resistance band. 3 sets x 10 reps. CAREFULL CHOOSING OBJECT TO ATTACH BAND TO. MAKE SURE OBJECT IS STATIONARY AND WONT FALL OR MOVE WHEN PERFORMING EXERCISES. If more resistance is needed, take a few steps back to tighten the band. Ensure you are slightly leaned back to compensate for the forward pull. Back is straight, facing the object your band is attached to, pull arms straight back a waist height, ensuring you feel tension within the middle of the back and slightly in the shoulders.

[41]







  • Bicep Curls With Resistance Band

Choose appropriate weight/ or appropriate resistance band. 3 sets x 10 reps. If more resistance is needed, spread feet wider than shoulder width. Keeping the back straight and arms at your side, you want to flex the biceps keeping the elbows close to the side of the body. Keeping feet on band shoulder width apart.

[42]









  • Chest Press With Resistance Band

Choose appropriate weight/ or appropriate resistance band. 3 sets x 10 reps. CAREFULL CHOOSING OBJECT TO ATTACH BAND TO. MAKE SURE OBJECT IS STATIONARY AND WONT FALL OR MOVE WHEN PERFORMING EXERCISES. Similar to rows, except arms are higher than waist height, and you are facing the opposite direction (Away from where band is attached to). Ensure to lean slightly forward to compensate for forces pulling you backwards. To increase tension take a few steps forward. Keeping the one foot forward stance enables a stable base of support. Push both arms simultaneously forward at shoulder height, to feel slight tension within the chest muscles.

[43]









  • Triceps Extensions With Resistance Band

Choose appropriate weight/ or appropriate resistance band. 3 sets x 10 reps. To increase tension you can stand closer to the end of the band that you are hold on to with your hand. Standing with a straight back, stand on one end of the band and grab the other end. You want to position your arm behind your head as if you are going to do a triceps stretch(nearly a 90 degree angle) and you are going to extend your arm straight up into the air to feel tension within the triceps muscle then return to the beginning position.

[44]









  • Shoulder Press With Resistance Band

Choose appropriate weight/ or appropriate resistance band. 3 sets x 10 reps To increase tension, spread feet farther than having them side by side. Ensure to keep back straight, arms stretched straight out parallel to the ground with a 90 degree bend at the elbow straight up. Extend arms straight up with bands in hand and return to starting position.

[45]











Lower Body:


  • Standing Lunges

2 sets x 15 reps. Maintain 90 degree angle at the lunging knee. Alternate Legs.


  • One Minute Exercises

Butt Kicks for one minute, then complete one minute of high knees. Focus on breathing throughout exercise


  • Abductors With Resistance Band

1 Set x 12 Reps Standing with feet shoulder width apart, extend your leg attached to the resistance band away from the body, not extending it too far, but enough to feel tension within the abductor region (Within the side of the Quadriceps). To increase resistance, you can stand farther away from object that band is attached to. Alternate legs.

[46]









  • Power Squats

1 Set x 20 Reps Standing feet shoulder width apart, starting in a squat position, back slightly straight, knees bent. Then swing arms backwards then up towards the ceiling, while doing a small jump, to return back down into squat position.

[47]











  • Donkey Kicks

2 Sets x 12 Reps Starting on hands and knees, grip both handles of the resistance band, while having the resistance band around one foot. You are going to extend your leg backwards straight, until you feel tension within the leg region. Alternate legs.

Tuesday, Dec 1, 2013 - 11am

Elliott Attended at the Zone

[edit] Session Goal

  • Aim to maintain current values that are already in an excellent category of score and to better scores that are on the lower category.

[edit] Vital Measures and Body Composition

  • KVD had a resting heart rate of 84bpm
  • KVD has a BMI of -21.4
    • BMI=weight(kg)/height2(m)
    • BMI=58.42kg/1.651m2
    • BMI=21.4

[edit] Warm up

  • 3 minute warm up on a stationary bike.
  • Dynamic stretching.
  • Walking lunges with a twist: The client steps forward with the right leg into a low lunge position. They then reach the right arm back, aiming to touch the left heel. This is held for 2-3 seconds. The lunge is performed 3 times for each leg.
    • Pick the Daisies - Hamstring Stretch: The client steps forward with the right leg, and dorsiflexes the foot. The client then flexes the trunk forward, sweeping down and then back up. This movement should last about 2-3 seconds. This is performed three times on each side.
  • Alligators: The client stands with their arms extended in front of them. The client then horizontally abducts both shoulders at the same time, keeping the elbows extended, as well as adducting the scapulae. The shoulders are then adducted back in to the starting position. This is all done in one fluid motion. This movement is performed 10 times.

[edit] Strength Testing

  • Push-Up Test
    • The client is tested on how many push-ups they can perform in 1 minute.
    • KVD performed 15 push-ups in one minute.
    • This is described as average
  • Wall-Sit Test
    • The client stands against a wall with their feet shoulder width apart. They then slide down the wall so that both their knees and hips are flexed at 90 degrees. The client holds this position until exhaustion.'
    • KVD held the wall sit position for 46 seconds.
    • This is described as good
  • Partial Curl-Up Test
    • The client performs partial curl-ups to exhaustion (with a maximum of 25), in time with a metronome at 50 bpm.
    • KVD completed 35 curl ups in cadence with the metronome.
    • This is described as excellent

[edit] Flexibility Testing

  • Sit and Reach Test
    • The client sits up with their legs extended. They then reach their arms and trunk forward as far as possible, keeping both hands in contact. The "zero point" which is located at the heels, is set to 15in.
    • KVD reached 21in.
    • This is described as good.

[edit] Balance Testing

  • Stork Stand
    • The client stands with one foot on the ground and the other resting on the inside of the knee. The client then lifts the standing leg so that they are balancing on their toes. This position is timed and held until the raised heel, or the raised leg touches the ground and balance is lost.
    • KVD stood for 9.8 seconds on the right leg, and 5 seconds on the left leg.
    • These scores are described as average and below average respectively.

[edit] Cardiovascular Testing

  • Rockport Walking Test
  • KVD walked 1 mile (1.6km) in 16:50.73. The recorded heart rate immediately following the test was 130bpm.

The estimated VO2 max is 32.53 ml/kg/min. This is described as 'good'.

    • VO2max=132.853-(0.0769x(weight))-(0.3877xage)-(6.315xgender)-(3.2649xtime)-(0.1565xHR)
    • VO2max=132.853-(0.0769x(128.8lbs))-(0.3877x39)-(6.315x0)-(3.2649x16.83min)-(0.1565x130bpm)
    • VO2max=32.53ml/kg/min
[88]

[edit] Cool Down

  • Due to time constraint, we were unable to complete a cool down.

[edit] Post Test Results - SMART Goals

  • Overall, most of the specific scores of the program goals were not met
  • For all of the strength scores (pushups, wall sit and partial curl up) significant improvements were made despite the fact that only

the perfect score 25 partial curl ups was met.

  • For the upper body strength goal, we had hoped that KVD would be able to complete 20 full pushups in a minute, which would be a 100% improvement. During the post test she was able to complete 15, which was still a 50% improvement from her initial assessment.
  • For the lower body strength goal, KVD improved her wall sit score by 5 seconds.
  • The most impressive improvement was from the partial curl up test where KVD was able to perform 37 partial curl ups in time with the metronome, thus surpassing the perfect score of 25.
  • For the sit and reach test, KVD did not meet our goal. However this is likely due to poor decision making in regards to the goal on our part as she was already ranked as 'excellent', which would be hard to improve. The fact that the tester, or person measuring was different for the two times that this test was done could also contribute to the decrease in score by 1".
  • KVD significantly improved her stork stand scores from 3 and 5 seconds (left and right leg), to 5 and 9.8. Both scores almost doubled.
  • There was a significant decrease in KVD's VO2max score from the Rockport Test. We learned at the final meeting that she had not been regularly attending spin classes as she had been prior to and at the beginning of the program.
  • One thing that was noted during the post assessment that during the push up and wall sit tests it appeared as though KVD could have continued working and achieved a better score. This is something that was also observed during the first assessment. It seems as though during these assessments she does not push herself to the limit, and stops working when she believes that she can do no more. This was evidenced by the fact that there were no visible signs during the wall sit or push up test that she was fatiguing, as well as the fact that she was able to perform 12 pushups two weaks earlier, at the end of a tiring workout.
  • Another thing that may have contributed to the scores, was the fact that she had not been feeling well the day of the post assessment. The information that she had been severely sleep deprived the previous night, and had been feeling cranky had not been brought to our attention until the final meeting the next week.
  • It had become apparent during the program that our goals were not entirely realistic, and quite lofty.

[edit] Final Meeting: Debriefing

Fri Dec 6, 9:15am - Starbucks in Plaza

All group members attended

Goals:

  • To go over the the training program, get client feedback about the program.
  • Provide the client with information in regards to the most recent loads and volumes of exercises done
  • Provide the client with materials to continue on with the strength program on her own

[edit] Meeting

  • We gave KVD a chart listing her scores from the pre-assessment and post-assessment. This allowed her to see the differences in her scores, and the progress that she had made over the 6 weeks. This was important as one thing that was noted in the consultation was that she had become discouraged in the past when she had not been able to notice any progress from weight training.
  • We also gave KVD a chart listing the exercises that she had done with us over the last 2-3 weeks, as well as the most recent load, reps and sets used for each exercise. This information will give her a baseline for where she is following the 6 weeks, which will allow her to either continue working at this level, or to progress further if she wishes.
  • Finally, we gave KVD a handbook outlining how to create her own workouts. This handbook included information regarding various loading structures, the number of reps and rest time to use depending on what the goal of her workout was (ie. muscular strength, muscular endurance etc.). It also included information on how many exercises to incorporate depending on time availability and number of sets, as well as which types of exercises to chose depending on what area(s) of the body she chooses to target.
  • Lastly, the handbook included a description and picture of each exercise that we did during the training program, as well as a number of extra ones, all categorized by the main muscle group(s) they target.
