    What’s up Joe

    When I train clients in person, specifically beginner clients, I feel like I’m always thinking to much about activations and warmups for them. I believe I heard you say before, maybe in your “training the Mrs Jones client” video where you said they’re not that big of a deal compared to someone like you or me training (I try to not train like a total bitch, lol). Now I could be wrong if you said that but my question is, in your opinion what’s a good ‘dose’ of prep work for the average client to do?

    On one hand I think they’re probably not that big of a deal to do them, some warm up sets will be fine, they won’t get hurt. Then on the other hand I think well actually, a thorough 10 minute ‘Broga type’ full body warm up may actually be extremely beneficial for the average client to do pre training assuming they’re training full or half body. My thoughts are just getting quality contractions with no load first may do enough where the client actually notices a difference in how they feel and it will translate over into the session

    Am I overthinking this? Do you think the average client doesn’t need to do much if anything at all pre training and they can just right into the session or do you think it may be more beneficial to do it than not? I realize as well this is extremely individual from person to person.

    Thanks Joe!
