    Looking for your philosophy on training 60 plus and even people in their 50s with little to no training experience.

    I have my usual way of training everyone else which is finding the meat and potatoes exercises that fit my clients goals and progressing on them. I program similar to Joe and Bryce where it’s 1-2 heavy sets per exercise taken to failure.

    I do sometimes struggle to program for the older age group and don’t like just giving pump and fluff workouts. Specifically I’m looking to see what your opinion for this demographic would be on
    -Exercise Selection
    – Rep Ranges
    – Sets/progression (a couple of close sets to failure using a double progression model or if I should do a 3-4×10 rep model where I don’t add weight until all sets are completed at the target high end rep range.

    I also don’t have machines other than lat pull down
