[edit] Technique
  • Decreased side planks hold time because we changed the position to increase the intensity of the exercise (from knees more in order to get hips higher and make a straighter line with her body).
  • Decreased to 45 seconds for the front planks because we changed it to a front plank on a stability ball to hopefully help with low back pain she was experiencing today.
  • Did the Russian Twist with heels still in contact with the ground, but we added a 10 lbs weight. Was able to do five rotations to each side with the weight.
[edit] General
  • Client was going to do some of the static stretching on her own because she was short on time (inferior, posterior shoulder stretches, quad stretch, lunge/hockey stretch).
  • Improvements from Week 1 - Week 2 are harder to notice because:
    • The front plank and side planks it appears she did worse based on time, however INTENSITY was increased.
    • Weight was added to the Russian Twist to increase INTENSITY.
  • However, improvements can be noted in the Glute Bridge - did both sets with 30s of single leg position; did 15 leg raises in both sets.
  • Her first set of Windshield Wipers decreased by one rep to each side (7 reps), but her second set was the same as week one (8 reps).

[edit] Post-Assessment Testing

  • Date: Thursday, November 29, 2012
  • Attended by: Brittan & Steph
  • Location: Zone


General:

  • Resting Heart Rate: 68 bpm

Cardiovascular:

  • Rockport 1 mile walk (8 laps around track)
    • Initial HR: 68 bpm
    • Final HR: 92 bpm
    • Time: 17.26
    • Calculation: 132.853 - (0.0769 × Weight(200)) - (0.3877 × Age(29)) + (6.315 × Gender(0)) - (3.2649 × Time(17.43 min) - (0.1565 × Heart rate(92 bpm))
    • VO2 max: 34.92 mL/kg/min
    • VO2 max average for age: 34.76 mL/kg/min

Flexibility:

  • FMS Scores
    • Shoulder Mobility - Left: 1 ; Right: 1 (Both still aren't great, but they have improved)
    • Deep Squat - 2 (heels up on stick)
    • In-line lunge - Left: 3 ; Right: 3(Hands stayed in contact with lower back and head, both ways)
    • Straight leg raise: Left: 3 ; Right: 3

Muscular Endurance/Strength:

  • Max. # of push-ups: 16
  • 1 min. Sit-up test: 28
    • (Both of these exercises the client stated she struggles with and would like to improve them with this exercise program)

[edit] Improvements/Were Our Goals Met

  • VO2 Max = +3.36 mL/kg/min

(This brings her just above the average for her age and gender)

  • Shoulder Mobility: Improved, but score remained the same.
  • Deep Squat: Remained the same
  • In-Line Lunge: Left remained the same at 3, Right leg improved to a score of 3, from 2.
  • Straight Leg Raise: Both legs increase to a score of 3, from 2. (Entire foot was past dowel)
  • Push-Ups = -3 (decrease, however technique was better and she went closer to the ground)
  • Sit-ups = +3 increase


  • Goal #1: This goal was met after the 6 week training program. Although she was did less sit-ups in the post-testing, her technique had greatly improved. She is now able to come up off the floor higher (shoulder blades completely off floor). She only sis three more push-ups in the post testing, however she is capable of lowering her chest much closer to the floor, and she is keeping the body much straighter than she did in the pre-test.
  • Goal #2: This goal was not met unfortunately. Although she did improve her shoulder flexibility, she still has a fair bit of work to do on getting a score of 2 on the FMS scale.
  • Goal #3: This goal was met. Her VO2max was increased enough to put her in the "Normal" category and even push her slightly above the average for her age and gender.

[edit] Tools to Enable Program Continuation

  • We provided our client with a handout package including all exercises that we had her do throughout the entire program. The booklet also included all stretches and warm-up activities we did with her. Dosages were given as guidelines for every exercise and stretch, along with any weight sizes that were used. Finally we also included any progressions that she could do with the exercises as she got better and more familiar with the exercises.


This link is the handout of the core program that was provided to the client.
