Chad is an avid golfer. He wishes to improve his golf game and is very motivated to get started on a training program. Chad has exercised regularly for the past 8 years and is in good physical health. Most of his exercise has been aerobic in nature with only a small amount of resistance training. 1. Using the information above, calculate the client's BMI
2. Calculate the client's BMR.
3. Calculate the client's target heart rate at 60% and 80% using the Karvonen formula.
THR @ 60% = 131
THR @ 80% = 148
4. Discuss fitness tests or methods of evaluation that should be used to assess the client, providing rationale for your recommendations. Be sure to address the specific conditions presented by your client.
