There are a few things to watch out for when looking at a program you are thinking about doing or that is given to you. If a program has some of these red flags, you might want to consider finding a different program (or coach).
- No rest periods
- No tempo
- Multiple exercises that are basically the same (flat DB press and flat BB bench press, DB curl and BB curl)
- Rep ranges all over the place
- Pre-exhausting stabilizing muscle groups before a compound exercise
- Anatomically incorrect exercise selection
