I know what you guys are probably going to say - "Find a good divorce lawyer first". Well, a few years ago that would have been the case but my wife is at the point now where she has asked me to help her. I have gained about 25 lbs in the last 2 years and am in the best shape of my life at 33.
She is 5'10", 37 years old, 170 lbs. She is a large frame, muscular woman, not to fat. She has worked out all of her life, but she would never eat right. Not enough protein, to much bread and pasta, and occasional junk food. I have asked her to eat better and she is trying to accomodate. She would like to harden (tone) up. She also has lower back problems so we can't do a lot of bent over exercises.
She has worked out for years, but intensity is a problem. She just won't push herself hard enough. She can usually do a number more (5) than when she says "i can't do anymore". That is why she wanted me to work w/her, she wants to be pushed.
I used the body for life workout initially to build and it worked great. I have since changed over to chest/back 1 night, shoulders/arms/ 1 night and legs/1 night.
I have been working her out three times a week w/ upper body 1 day, lower the next. I've been using 25-30 reps 1st set, and woking down as we add weight. Finish w/ 10-12.
I meet her at the gym every other day at lunch or 4 o'clock at they gym. She can handle a hard workout so i'm asking for a pretty advanced workout routine ideas.
Tone and firm body
lose weight in middle section
get rid of "fat pads" on her back, below shoulder blades, on the side
Thanks in adance,
