There's a reason why almost all personal trainers are dead wrong in the way they train their clients. It's because they are clueless about the three training components. I'd would say half the trainers know something about the three components. Training is usually the one they most know about, yet not nearly what they should know.
For example, most don't know the real difference between strength and volume training. Some don't even know the difference between a superset or a compound set. I would venture to say very few if any know you can train the same body part every five hours providing that the body part is not overtrained to begin with, which by the way is entirely possible if you're a legit trainer who knows their shit.
Cardio conditioning is another area which trainers are confused. Most can't tell you how much you should do and the length of time before it becomes a muscle wasting exercise. Fake trainers can't tell you why a targeted heart rate is paramount when cardio training, simply because if it's too high, your body utilizes sugar rather than fat as it's energy source.
And then you have nutrition, which is the most misunderstood of the three training components. Trainers are all over the place with this component, usually in the wrong place. The bottom line and reason most trainers don't really know the ins and outs of the three training components is do to lack of first hand experience, as there in lies the real knowledge.
