    ISSA Case Studies

    Just wondering what peoples' thoughts are on the two case studies for the ISSA cert. Any suggestions would be helpful.

    Case 1:


    CLIENT PROFILE: CHAD EVERMORE
    Age Gender Resting Heart Rate Height Weight Body Fat Percentage
    55 Male 80 bpm 6'2" 180 pounds 20%


    Chad is an avid golfer. He wishes to improve his golf game and is very motivated to get started on a training program. Chad has exercised regularly for the past 8 years and is in good physical health. Most of his exercise has been aerobic in nature with only a small amount of resistance training.

    Provide a detailed, comprehensive, 12-week periodized training program, including specific sets, repetitions and exercises, utilizing an integrated approach.

    Case 2:



    CLIENT PROFILE: CHRIS DOUBLE
    Age Gender Resting Heart Rate Height Weight Body Fat Percentage
    14 Male 70 bpm 5'10" 120 pounds 11%


    Chris is a high school student and is eager to gain some muscle mass. He eats a diet that consists primarily or processed foods (fast food, cafeteria, etc.) Chris is anxious to get stronger so that he can go out for the wrestling team.

    Provide a detailed, comprehensive, 12-week periodized training program, including specific sets, repetitions and exercises, utilizing an integrated approach.
    Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

    Not to be a douche, but do your own homework. Maybe post what you think about the questions and your solutions and then we can help you.

    This is also against the ISSA rules (posting specific questions to the exam). I would recommend removing or revising your post.
    I am certified as an ISSA Fitness Instructor, Pilates Mat Tech I instructor, Form Roller Instructor, and in Group Instruction. I am an experienced Athlete, Weight-lifter, Gymnast, and have several years of hands-on experience in Physical Therapy Modalities. Check me out at www.IronLooks.com

    Well I'm certainly not looking for solution(s), just for suggestions. For example, something I saw looked like this:
    weeks 1 + 2 = evaluation of muscle imbalances/injury prevention/fitness capacity of client (keep repetitions between 20-25) with light weight
    weeks 3 + 4 = strengthening of core + stabilizing muscles (repetitions 15-20)
    weeks 5 + 6 = introduction of light hypertrophy training combined with circuit workout to improve aerobic + anaerobic capacity (8-12 reps)
    weeks 7 - 12 = strength + power training simultaneously integrating sports-specific training to strengthen hip explosiveness, core stability, upper body + lower body power generation....utilizing kettlebells, bosu balls, etc...

    However this is more NASM school-of-thought, focussing on injury prevention.

    Another solution:

    Anatomical Adaptation/ Active Rest

    Type of program suggested: Circuit Training
    Intensity level: Low (30- 60% of 1RM)
    Repetitions: 15- 20
    Total sets per muscle group: 1-3 per exercise
    Number of exercises per muscle group: 1
    Rest between sets: 0- 60 seconds

    Hypertrophy (Muscle Mass)

    Type of program suggested: Some type of training split tailored to your schedule
    Intensity level: Moderate (60- 80% of 1RM)
    Repetitions: 6- 12
    Total sets per muscle group: Large Muscle Groups- 4- 8
    Small Muscle Groups- 1- 3
    Number of exercises per muscle group: 1- 4
    Rest between sets: 60- 120 seconds

    Absolute Strength

    Type of program suggested: Some type of training split tailored to your client's schedule
    Intensity level: High (80- 100+% of 1RM)
    Repetitions: 1- 5
    Total sets per muscle group: Large Muscle Groups- 5- 10
    Small Muscle Groups- 2- 4
    Number of exercises per muscle group: 1- 2
    Rest between sets: 120- 240 seconds


    but I am wondering if this is too focussed on anaerobic effort. Even though he's a golfer, he must have some aerobic conditioning.

    I'm also wondering if at the outset, the focus should be mostly on core conditioning, as this is the power transfer zone for a golfer (through the hip rotation and trunk rotation).
    Well, Art is Art, isn't it? Still, on the other hand, water is water. And east is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does. Now you tell me what you know.

    seems like you will be fine besides that little part about the bosu ball work haha, does NASM protocol teach hypertrophy work before maximal strength phases? I guess I can understand higher rep schemes to get clients familiar and comfortable with the exercises but I always thought that if you could cover most of that in the gpp that you could get more out of the hypertrophy work if it was preceded by an absolute strength phase.

    I did exactly the same question for ISSA exam. They do explain a lot in the book and think about primary goal of your client, his fitness level too and you will find an answer. It took me a while to write a good workout schemefor that, but I passed with B+ overall.

    Attention to all ISSA Students...A message from the ISSA Administration

    A brief message from the ISSA Administration: Firstly, we would like to sincerely thank all of our current and former students who have left comments on this site and others for your unwavering integrity and for your words of encouragement for those who are searching for assistance and guidance regarding the ISSA final examination and in particular, the 2 Case Studies. That being said, we would like for it to be known that we do monitor these sites and chat boards consistently, and for those who are either currently searching or are considering searching for detailed and specific assistance regarding any aspect of the examination, we would ask that you think twice about requesting this type of help as it is strictly prohibited and could result in serious penalty if we find that a submitted response has been plagiarized. In the past week alone, our plagiarism tracker software has identified 5 case study responses that were copied and pasted from an internet site therefore we again ask that if you are having a difficult time with the case studies or in any aspect of the examination, please feel free to contact our professors and training experts that are available for you here at the ISSA at 1(800)892-4772 between 7am-5pm Monday through Friday or via email or the Question Board for assistance as we are more than happy to help you throughout this process. For those considering taking the 'easy way out' or a short cut by either copying work or asking for specific assistance from others, please consider the hard work and vigilant study that so many fitness professionals have dedicated to this course before you, and we only ask that you dedicate the same level of time, hard work and study into your exam submissions as those who came before you. We thank you all in advance for your adherence to our examination policies, and again we want to thank all of you current and former students who have shown your integrity, honesty and condemnation for those searching for a short cut.

    This is why the ISSA is a chit certification. It would be good if it weren't for the fact that so many people who take it cheat and get advice online. I am ISSA certified and I didn't get ANY help online.
