7 Preguntas su entrenador deben ser pidiéndole

If you are looking for in the recruitment of a professional trainer, it can be difficult to choose the right for you. The best coaches sit in the first meeting, I ask all sorts of questions and find out exactly what you need, all before ever touching a weight. Therefore the coach will be able to create the exercise program that fits your needs best- and that will give you the best results.


Here are some questions that your coach should ask at the first interview:

1 I have health problems?

The list of health problems is wide and will include: attacks the heart, heart surgery, chest pains, high blood pressure (140/90), problems of smoking, high cholesterol (more than 200 mg/dl), heart murmurs, arrhythmia, ankle swelling, rheumatic fever, vascular diseases, phlebitis, fainting, shortness of breath, bronchitis, asthma, emphysema, stroke, high blood fat levels, emotional disorders, recent illnesses or hospitalizations, allergies to medications, arthritis and orthopedic problems.

2 Do you have diabetes?

Many professional coaches are not trained for health risk factors training to, and diabetes is one of these risk factors.

3. What is the size of your waist?

With a circumference of 40 inches or more men and women with a circumference of 35 inches or greater will be considered obese, and many coaches are not certified to train to obese people.

4 Do you have a heart rate at rest abnormal?

This is another important risk factor, which means that their coach may not be certified to train you.

5. What are your goals?

This question will help the coach to create a diet and exercise program specifically for you. Both short and long term goals should be taken into account in the creation of the program, so it will need to be prepared to answer this question.

6. What are your eating habits?

His coach will ask this to see how you can adjust your diet to improve the weight loss, weight gain or weight maintenance. This will include the number of calories, the type of foods eaten, weight, time and the size of meals and the number of socks per day. Also ask about any supplements you are taking.

7. You have resistance did exercise before?

Coaches will want to know about his past, resistance exercise since it will help you create a program that will deliver optimal results. They want to know what kind of routines you've done, what time of day is used to training, how much you work out, how to choose target various muscles in your body and what type of exercise prefer you.

Once the questions are asked, it is time for some very important tests:

1 Weight measurement test

Test weight is a necessary evil, since it will help the coach out figure how much fat weight should miss. First you will test your total body weight, and will be followed by a test of lean body weight. Simply subtract your lean body weight of its total weight, and you have the weight of fat to be burned through their workouts.

2 BMR-test

The Harris Benedict formula for the determination of the basal metabolic rate is:

Men: BMR = 66 + (13.7 X weight in kg) + (5 X height in cm)-(6.8 X edad en años)

Women: BMR = 655 + (9.6 X weight in kg) + (1.8 X height in cm)-(4.7 X edad en años)

This will tell you how many calories your body needs in one day, it will help the coach to know how modify their diet according to the objectives of maintenance, loss, and weight gain.

3 Pulse test

The trainer must determine your heart rate to find out how much strives. With a stopwatch, taking his pulse and count the number of heart beats in 10 seconds. Multiply by six, and you have your heart rate at rest. (Example: 7 beats in 10 seconds = 70 BPM) Your maximum heart rate is your age subtracted from 220 (220-25 = 195). When you exercise, your target heart rate will be approximately 60 to 80 percent of your maximum heart rate.

The coach will have to do these tests in order to help you train safely.
