After the personal questionnaire has been completed, the training program can be designed in the following order and based on these considerations. In the first week of training, exercisers are introduced to the apparatus. It is important for beginners to try out equipment that is relatively easy to operate without special knowledge or technical skills.
This should include a comprehensive explanation of operating instructions and safety procedures. Emphasis should be on proper structured performance, rather than on intensity.
Recommended apparatus for this purpose are: exercise bike or treadmill, upper pulley, chest press, and knee extensors and flexors. The work on these apparatus activate large rather than small muscle groups and, therefore, avoids causing premature fatigue. In addition to performing the exercise, exercisers should understand the aim of the activity, and the relationship between the work and health benefits.
