Thank you for this great article. It helped me understand the importance of exercise selection appropriate to clients ability and needs. As fitness instructors, it is very important to identify what muscles are involved in the exercise selection, and what muscles are compensating to perform the exercise. From my understaning, if a client is unable to maintain proper form for a selected exercise, it must be regressed by reducing resistance, range of motion, increasing stability, changing planes, or reducing gravitational pull. If none of these work, try a different exercise.
