How do you keep your integrity as a trainer?

90% of PTs I see get clients to do half squats, not touch their chest when they bench and do endless fluff exercises. Is it that they just don't know what they're doing or is their some sort of monetary pressure causing them to do this? If so how do you keep your integrity?

Will Donating Plasma Inhibit Muscle Growth?

I had a client of mine ask this to me yesterday and I could not give him an answer. I did some research and plasma is made up of protein so his question could be valid. Does anyone know if this could be plausable.

Training teenage girls

Yay or nay? I've recently been approached by a teenage girl(17), and have read of absolute horror stories where trainers get accused of **** that can get them in a lot of trouble. Obviously I'd never be unprofessional, but is it weird that I'm apprehensive? I'm a 30 year old male, btw.
