Exercise Programming

________ Assume that your client is interested in improving cardiorespiratory fitness. Using the GXT data, design a reasonable 4 week exercise program. Identify frequency, intensity, duration (time) and type of exercise. Calculate training heart rate using heart rate reserve.
Your program should demonstrate application of progressive overload. Provide a rationale for your program design. (Since you do not have additional information on your client’s specific goals, current exercise, or preferred activities, include in your rationale why you selected specific types of exercise [e.g., my client enjoys jogging]. If you completed a GXT in class and are using your data, you can provide more information about your goals, current exercise, and preferred activities.) Include a brief discussion of warm up and cool down activities.

Note: You have not assessed muscle strength & endurance, so do not program that type of exercise.
