What did you base your decision on? - Upper Body Choice of Exercise bench press, arm curl, lat pull-down Frequency 2-3 days/wk Intensity 60-70% 1RM Volume (Duration) 3-5 sets of 8-12 reps Rest Interval 1-2 min - Lower Body Choice of Exercise leg press, leg extension, leg curl Frequency 2-3 days/wk Intensity 70-85% 1RM Volume (Duration) 1-3 sets of 10-15 reps Rest Interval 2-3 min - Frequency As a beginner, giving him a goal of 2-3 days per week for the first few weeks gives him the flexibility to work around his schedule to find the right "groove", as well as giving his body enough time to rest between each work-out session. - Intensity The reasoning for my decision to vary intensity between upper body and lower body was because this man's lower body is much stronger than his upper body, therefore, it would make more sense to work his lower body muscles a little harder t ...

Lower back pain If this individual has chronic lower back pain that was not caused by a traumatic event, there are a few things she can do that could possibly minimize the pain. One of the main causes of lower back pain is the lack of flexibility of the hip flexor muscles (which are the muscles located on the front of the thigh connected to the iliac crest on the hip bone). When these muscles are tight, the hips are strained from dispersing the weight of the body. Other factors that add to lower back pain are tight hamstrings, as well as lack of strength in the abdomen, quadriceps, and gluteus maximus. I would suggest that after her exercise prescription this individual should spend 2 minutes after her cool-down period to stretch the hip flexors as well as the hamstrings. She can even stretch these muscles on days she does not exercise, like after a hot shower when her muscles are warm. Possibly af ...
