Client is a middle aged man, Rob Rich, with heart problems and is out of shape
For Assignment #3, you will be designing an OPT Strength Phase 2, 3, & 4 program for your client. Remember, you will continue to use the same client that you started with in the first assignment and following the guidelines provided by NASM. Strength phases 2, 3 & 4 build upon each other. You will progress your client to phases 3 and 4 only if they meet the criteria to progress and you will provide a timeline for this progression. Discuss your decision in the narrative, which shall provide the following information:
Background of your client, their goals, the findings of the initial Fitness Assessment & review of postural/movement issues, illnesses, previous injury, or medication precautions, goals & and an idea of the type of training schedule they will maintain.
OPT Program Strength Phase(s) chosen with appropriate rationale, including: Cardiorespiratory training protocols, SMR & Flexibility training protocols, Core & Balance training protocols, Reactive training protocols, Speed Agility Quickness (SAQ) training protocols, and Resistance training protocols.
Performance Assessment information (or performance assessment data collected) with rationale about how this information will inform your program design
Narrative discussing why you chose specific training protocols for your client and how your choices will help your client reach his/her training goals.
Completed OPT Template (Refer to Chapter 10 of your text book) including all acute variables, such as intensity or weight (using Rep maximum data), sets, reps, tempo, and rest.
The narrative of your paper should be at least 3 pages (no longer than 6), not including title and reference pages. Any charts or tables you add will definitely add to this. Using charts and tables will help to provide visual guidance as to your client’s health status and your thought process. Please support your rationale for using any and all of your assessments with appropriate academic sources (minimum of 3 + textbook = Minimum 4 References).
The writing component must meet all rules of APA formatting (6th edition) and MUST be submitted in WORD document format only.
