Done for You 4-Week Exercise Workout Program

* Customize a 3-5 Day Program

– Choose 2-3 of the workouts
– Choose 1-2 of the Cardio
– Then choose the volume 50% of set volume for beginners
– This will allow you to learn to modify any workout you see
– In this example you can create a beginner, intermediate or advanced program
– And you can choose 3 – 5 days of total workouts per week
– You will most likely plateau in about 4 weeks and at that time it’s time to move onto a new program
– The best program is the one you’re not doing…
– This is how we write programs for clients at our Boston Personal Training studio

*** This client has a history of lower back stiffness and potentially an imbalanced core with tight hip flexors and weak/tight hamstrings. He also has has previous rotator cuff shoulder issues. He is only looking to lose about 5-10 lbs, which I’m recommending through a 7-14 day Dr. Cabral Detox and then maintenance with the Dr. Cabral Daily Protocol.
