In other news, I'm officially self-employed as a personal trainer. Taught my first trainee today and had a blast. All the friends, family, and my girlfriend I've drilled before really helped a lot. Since we're starting off with one day a week I structured a full-body template for her within the confines of the limited equipment we had access to at her apartment's fitness center. The set-up was a leg movement, a push, and a pull as the meat-and-potatoes for 3 sets of 10, with anything else being assistance exercises for fun. Working with just dumbbells, an EZ bar, and some machines, I had her do goblet squats, EZ bar overhead press, and dumbbell rows, with shoulder shockers and dumbbell curls to finish it all off. Next time we're going to throw cardio in the mix and I might have her hit the focus mitts. Bringing my kettlebells along is also in order.
