Case Study 1The periodized training program is a standard framework that is usually adopted by athletes that are preparing for their professional engagement in their sport so that they will achieve peak performance goal. However, the framework has found its application within the healthcare settings and people are now taking proactive measures to make sure that they remain healthy and active. In an era when the instances of lifestyle illnesses such as diabetes and obesity tend to have a high prevalence. With pharmacological approaches failing to facilitate effective management of these illnesses. After the periodized training programs they found a new set of users like people who seek to maintain, regain, and sustain their health at peak levels. While most people consider gym workouts as a key aspect of maintaining or regaining body shape and activeness, the normal gym workouts may not always be the best solution especially for people that have real and serious health goals. Some gym sessions may lack the professional attribute of health management and this is what may separate them from the periodized training programs (PTP).The stages of the drawing-in process:As a professional, guiding the patient through the PTP is the initial phase to accomplish the five-stage drawing-in process. The first stage is to make sure that you present the look of a professional by developing a rapport with the clients, having a good understanding of your role, both theoretically and practically, demonstrating a high level of integrity, demonstrating enthusiasm, demonstrating sincerity and ensuring that you stick to ethics of the profession (Hatfield, 385).

The first stage is to make sure that you present the look of a professional by developing a rapport with the clients, having a good understanding of your role, both theoretically and practically, demonstrating a high level of integrity, demonstrating enthusiasm, demonstrating sincerity and ensuring that you stick to ethics of the profession (Hatfield, 385). The second stage of the drawing-in process is data collection. It is important to recognize that clients will present with varying reasons for participating in the PTP. As their role model you have to make sure that you gather as much information on your client so as to help them develop realistic goals instead of unrealistic ones. It is important to perform a physical and history examination of the client and utilizing subjective and objective evidence to manage and define the PTP tailored to the needs as may be deductively made from the acquired data (Hatfield, 387). The third phase is the guided discovery phase which includes performing an introduction for the client so that they are aware of the expectations you set and what their role is in the PTP course. This is normally a critical decision making point for the client as they tend to have a theoretical grasp of the process they are set to undergo (Hatfield, 387-388). In the fourth phase “feeling the water before jumping in” phase, the patient is accorded several sessions outside the PTP to have a feel of the expected performances (Hatfield,388). While these are guided by the PTP specialists, they are not strict enough but it’s a good session to determine what the client’s motivations are to begin the PTP while also giving a good platform to determine the set expectations. The fifth phase is helping the client develop a lifestyle embedded on an integrated fitness plan. Without discipline especially away from the PTP trainer it is critical in achieving the goals of the program. It’s in this phase that the trainer can really help the client in designing an effective but cost-viable dietary plan which is a key component in the PTP (Hatfield, 388).Assessment and evaluation of client’s profile and client’s needs:The client is a 53-year old client with a BMI of 27.46 which indicates that she is overweight. The client is most likely in the early stage of obesity level which if not contained could quickly progress to obesity. The client’s resting heart rate is 90bpm which indicates a highly strained heart way beyond the normal rate of  72bpm. The body fat percentage is 35% which indicates obesity status. The client’s has been diagnosed with high blood pressure as indicated in her medical records. The client admits to living a sedentary lifestyle attributed to her high-stress corporate job. Jamie the client has good health knowledge and discovers that her health is headed in the wrong direction and there is a need for change ASAP. The motivation behind her decision is sufficient to enable her pursue the periodized training program to completion. She hopes to complete her PTP in three months motivated by the desire to attend her daughter’s high school graduation having completed the program.Periodized training program:Week 1-2:This is typically the transitional phase of the PTP from the baseline. In essence, the client is beginning a new approach to their physical health and a change in schedule of their physical activities. The first week will include a 10 minute warm-up walking on a treadmill, I would require Jamie to have a 10 minute warm-up instead of a 5 minute warm-up because of here high blood pressure to prevent hypertensive chances of experiencing a sharp and sudden rise in blood pressure(Hatfield,644), low volume and low intensity training with specific focus on assessing and measuring progress in terms of adaptation of the body systems to the activity. The volume in this phase is 2 sets per exercise for each muscle group, which is the set system training principle(Hatfield,446).Set system training is good for beginner and inexperience clients. Seven exercises will be accomplished namely safety squat, flat bench dumbbell press, flying  leg curl, dumbbell press, seated cable row, shoulder press, and barbell curl (Hatfield, 486). In the second week the seated cable row will be replaced by the crunches exercise to integrate the abdominal muscles into the adaptation. The rest period between sets will be set at 60 seconds based on reality of anatomical adaptation. The focus of the trainer is to prioritize injury prevention and assess the fitness capacity of the client considering their overweight status and the transition to a highly active lifestyle. The dietary plan will include small but sufficient quantities of carbohydrates limited to 150 grams per day as well as high intake of vegetables and fruits. Unsaturated fats and sugary foods should be avoided in these two weeks (Hatfield, 651).Weeks 3 – 4: In this stage, the focus is on stabilization of muscles, strengthening of the core, and cardiovascular endurance. The PTP will consist of lower intensity coupled with high volume activities as well. A range of 6 exercises for all the muscle groups will be accomplished namely back extension, seated machine row, flat bench press, lying leg curl, standing calf raise, and barbell curl. For the sets, the small muscle groups will be subjected to do 3 sets per exercise while the large muscle groups will be subjected to do between 4 and 8 sets per exercise. The rest periods between sets will be set at only 60 to 120 seconds (Hatfield, 128). Repetitions will be accomplished at the range of 6 to 12. New movement patterns will be accomplished to make sure there is higher balance levels and better stabilization of muscles. Diet will be reviewed to contain vegetables, fruits and while grains with preference for popcorns. A cup of broccoli on each second day for the entire period will be a requirement. One grapefruit and a minimum of 4 liters of water on each day will also be crucial to sustain the energy levels without adding weight.Weeks 5 – 6:In this phase, there we will combine high intensity with high volume in order to make sure there is muscle growth and hypertrophy based on the assumption that much of the fat percentage will have been cut down by about 30%. The number of exercises for each of the muscle groups has been set at 2 sets per muscle groups with 8 sets per exercise for the large muscles, and 4 sets per exercise of the small muscles. The following seven exercises will be accomplished including back extension, seated machine row, crunches flat bench press, lying leg curl, standing calf raise, barbell wrist curl, and barbell curl. Repetitions will be accomplished at the rate of 5. The rest period between sets in this phase is set between 120 and 240 seconds based on intensity of exercise. Diet will be maintained as from the previous phase.Weeks 7 – 12:In this phase, volume of exercise will be reduced and the intensity will be increased a lot. However there will be significantly greater periods of rest accompanied by the slower training tempos. These are targeted at increasing or maximizing recruitment of the motor unit which focus is on reactivating the intramuscular and neural adaptations to the now active body. Four exercises will be accomplished in this phase namely the barbell squat, the low row, straight leg deadlifts, and the dumbbell incline press (Hatfield, 774). For each exercise, there will be 10 sets with a minimum of five repetitions. The exercise will be accomplished in any order as long as the complete schedule is accomplished. The diet will be maintained as in the previous week with additional daily cup of butter to ensure enough calories to sustain the continuing muscle hypertrophy and growth (Hatfield, 494). Works Cited:Hatfield, Frederick C. Fitness: The complete guide. 9th ed., International Sports Sciences Association, 2017.
