Why "Cookie Cutter" Workouts Are Not the Answer

Whether a person is training to improve their athletic performance or to recover from an injury, strength and conditioning therapy can be greatly beneficial to help a person reach their fitness goals. While the benefits of conditioning therapy are undeniable, many fitness clinics and gyms have begun pushing standardized, “cookie cutter” workouts on people as a means of providing solutions to people’s fitness needs in bulk. These stock workouts, while effective for some, have an overall much smaller chance of helping a person achieve the results they desire. Why is this, you ask? The answer is simple: everyone is different, therefore one workout will not satisfy everyone’s needs and goals.

Why Is a Customized Strength Training Routine Important?

Genetics, body composition, gender, lifestyle, diet, and preexisting medical conditions are just some of the myriad of different factors that can affect how a patient’s body will react to a particular strength training routine. If these factors are not taken into consideration from the beginning of a person’s fitness regiment, certain workouts could be rendered ineffective or even detrimental to a person’s progression, especially if a person is attempting to recover from surgery or a serious injury.

Upon diagnosing a patient’s specific needs, a physical therapy trainer can put together a custom plan of exercises and stretches to help improve function and foster more efficient muscle development. With a customized plan, a person can avoid aggravating injuries with improper exercises and greatly improve their chances of achieving successful results.
