Upon completing warm ups, coach was about to have me do close foot squats and mentioned we did these last week. He said this week we were doing more reps. I told him we did a lot last week too for hamstrings, so he changed it to front squats.

s'not a lot of volume, just intensity. there was a more WU than normal, but that was coach's decision cos he wanted those quads to pop.

It’s a lot of fluff and volume. Useless but it makes him feel like he worked hard.

“Functional Training” is what he should be calling it. It won’t do anything for muscle growth.

I’ve been here a while and no, I’m not any more of a “troll” than your “coach” is a “trainer” or even a PT. Where’s these progress photos?

I’m just wondering how the progress has been since you’re using a trainer that has you doing a bunch of useless volume and zero intensity.

@3BG, from the very beginning my plan was to only use the trainer for a year. It looks like I am approaching that term amount which is typically the length of time I spend with most trainers I hire. Gonna transition out with him in the following month. The good thing is that the timing works just as I am getting ready for the PfMP exam and Baldrige Examiner Project which will keep me busy through the end of the year. I will evaluate my need for a trainer then. For now will stick with my own combination of intensity training.

I make up my own mind at my own pace. This journey has made it easier for me to discern what information is worthwhile and what isn't. Just because I take someone's advice once means that I am always going to take anyone's advice in the future.
