Blake Holley ISSA Case study: Peter Parker Age: 28 Gender: Male Resting Heart Rate: 80 bpm Height: 6'4" Weight: 252 lb Body Fat Percentage: 29% Background and Goals: Peter is a 28-year-old civil servant with a 9-to-5 desk job. He is 6'4" talland weighs 252 lb. He played football and basketball in high school and some intramural sportsin college, but has not worked out or been very active since. His diet is sporadic and consists of mostly processed and prepackaged foods that are quick and easy to prepare. Peter's goals are to lose weight, tone his body, and lead a healthier lifestyle. Based on Peter's current lifestyle and existing exercise and nutrition habits, design a 12-week progressive training program to help him best achieve his goals. Client InformationAge: 28 years Gender: Male Weight: 252 lbs Height: 6’4” (76”) Body fat: 29% Heart rate: 220-28=192@ 60%: (192-80)0.6+80=147.2 bpm@80%: (192-80)0.8+80=169.6 bpmProfessional Responsibilities:As a CPT it is my responsibility to sincerely work towards my client’s improvements in a safe way. An important first step is to make a client report, which includes building a rapport with your client. The background for this case study is a start, but if I were actually training Peter, I would try to better understand why losing weight has become such an important goal for him. Byknowing why your client wants to complete a certain goal, you can better assist them to stay motivated through their program. Peter has weight loss as a priority, but did not state exactly howmuch weight he wants to lose. Because she has a clear time frame, it will be a lot easier to track
her goal. In order to create the best plan for him I would try to get more information from him regarding a specific goals or goal weight. Another important aspect on how to lead a client towards their goals is by being knowledgeable at your occupation. By being honest with your client, striving to give your best, and being as knowledgeable as possible is going to help give your clients the best results.Peter’s plan will have to be a combination of both resistance training and cardiovascular conditioning. I would like to, before training him, do a preliminary assessment of both his current strength and cardiovascular ability. We would do a 4 day per week workout routine, starting with push exercises, then pull the next day, followed by legs, and repeat. This keeps Peter from plateauing but keeps all muscle groups working.Nutrition:Because Peter is looking to lose weight, but also bulk, I would recommend he eat 3 square mealsa day and 1 big snack consistently for the first month, followed by an additional snack month 2 and a third one month three, with lots of protein with his diet. This allows him to burn the fat, but tone his body as he works his muscles. As they tear, the protein helps build them up larger and stronger than before. His exercises should be proportional to the calories he intakes.
