Learning Objectives

1. Identify some common movements, variations, and potential contraindications if the trainer is not specific in their coaching.

2. Assist in the development of minimal and effective coaching cues to correct exercise form.

3. Provide some movement variations trainers can use based on client goals or limitations.

4. Clearly illustrate the importance of a "critical eye" and to constantly coach clients, regardless of movement or training tenure.
