Most workout programs are geared towards two types of people: those chasing aesthetics (building muscle or losing fat), or those pursuing performance. If these are your goals, then you can find plenty of fantastic programs out there that will lead to your success.
However, in my coaching experience, most people with 40-hour work weeks, families, social lives, and countless responsibilities often aren’t chasing a specific aesthetic or performance goal. Their goals usually look something like this: they want to be able to keep up with their children at any age, indulge in fun outdoor activities, maybe play on a local sports team after work, look good naked, maximize their health, and minimize their aches and pains. Most of my clients are simply looking for a balance of strength, mobility, muscular endurance, and cardiovascular endurance. They also want to accomplish all of these goals while minimizing their time commitment.
The average person isn’t interested in leg days that leave them so sore they have a hard time getting out of their office chair the next day. They don’t want high-impact exercises that leave their joints achy and vulnerable to injury. They simply want workout programs that give them the best bang for their buck.
