I have to write a program for a hypothetical 64 yr old female client with arthritis in her hips for my interview tomorrow.

Anyone have any info that may help me?

Thanks

Does this hypothetical involve any specific goals....say weight loss? Or is it just general fitness and health - stay active sort of thing?

Its a case study that asks me to plan a 60 minute workout plan for a woman who is a 64 year old retired nurse who has osteoarthritis in both hips. She walks 45 min every day and would love to be able to keep up with her 2 grandchildren. Her body fat is 32%. She also wants to look her best for her trip in 6 months.

I also need to identify 5 methods to build a client base as a personal trainer.


Ive found some decent info, but i find it hard too write a program without talking to the client and seeing/hearing what shes capable of.

I appreciate the help.

Random thoughts.

Squats are prolly out.

Do i say leg extensions and curls? or is biking enough for her legs?

I WAS THINKING OF MAKING HER SWIM SINCE THIS PLACE HAS A POOL. Sorry for the caps im too lazy to erase it. :P

Maybe 20min weights, 20 mins cardio -swim/bike/walk 3 times a week plus walking the other days?

I would probably keep her with isolations in the low body...extensions and curls. I don't see how the adding strength could be anything but a good thing, but I reserve the right to be wrong. Never had hip arthritis

I think I would keep her to machines so she minimizes down time and doesn't have to bend and fart around with free weights. Maybe a fullbody type circuit.

Just thinking out loud.

Nice! you echo my thoughts exactly. I had it as supersets thru the whole routine. something like this
leg ext
leg curl
push
pull
crunch
2 sets of each? 3 sets?
followed by 20 mins bike or swim

i am also thinking out loud and very much appreciaate your thoughts.

it has to be 60 mins.

im also curious of your thoughts on how you would plan her weekly routine. i would guess 2-3 strength/cardio days and the rest walking?

If she does multiple sets I would keep her at a station and do all sets before moving on.

I would try to give her exercises right out the gate that don't involve a lot of lying down. If you have upright machines for curls it would be nice.

Maybe I am being too gentle here.

You have an assisted dip machine? That might be a good press movement?

IDK about a dip machine cuz ive never been in the gym lol. I was thinking of just writing in horizontal push, rather than a specfic exercise, an saying that we can use whatever "tool" the client feels most comfortable with. What do you think of that?
