Balance/Stability training is the most retarded gimmick to ever enter the Industry

I'm working towards getting my NASM certification because that's what mainstream gyms seem to recognize. But I have a feeling I'm never going to be able to work for a mainstream gym cause I don't believe this bullchit and am not going to support this stupid gimmick. There are lots of studies...

Practical programming for clients

It's been a loooong time since I've posted on here. Problem: I'm seeing this in a lot of my interns and new trainers. They don't understand programming. They can write a great workout but the long term programming leaves some to be desired. I made this practical guide for NEW trainers...

The winning bulking program...

I was just curious what others thought of the chosen bulking routine. Great detailed info, but I'm confused as to why Day 1 only has four exercises and consists of some isolations workouts...surely bulking should be predominately compound movements?

Why are trainers so obsessed with nutrition?

I don't get it, nutriton is realm of a registered Dietician, so better to refer to someone more within their scope of practice. Besides, everyone already thinks they're an expert, diet is a religion to people. "Oh, I got a gluten sensitivity, it is self diagnosed and I do not even know what...

Stabilization Training / Rehab and Basketball Training

Hey guys, I'm studying for NASM certification, but that's not the part I'm directly concerned with. I see a lot of you think balance and stabilization training is a waste of time in another thread.

Coaching Best Practice - Group Classes

To clarify and add to my previous thread. My clients tend to be average people just wanting to be "fit for life". One of our focuses, apart from functional conditioning and the such, is building limit strength, (but not so much hypertrophy). As a rule a coach should design a program to ensure...

Currently working on getting my NASM cpt. Saw something about nafc and was wondering if you guys had any input. I can't find what gyms the cert is accepted at so I can't decide if it's **** or worth it. Way cheaper in price than NASM nutrition cert which is only reason I'm considering. So in short...
