I am about to take my girlfriend to my gym. Awesome. She just had a baby a month ago Thursday and wants to ease into it. She hasn't really seriously trained with weights before so I don't want to kill her the first workout.
I would just like some input as far as to what I could have her do just beginning. My idea is a full body circuit using mostly bodyweight exercises and a couple simple weighted exercises. The goal is to learn the basic lifts and get her metabolism up to burn some fat and maybe even build a little muscle.
2.) squat variation (single leg)
3.) dumbbell row
4.) kettlebell swings
5.) military press with dumbbells
6.) simple ab exercise (plank/reverse crunch maybe?)
just go through that 10 reps per exercise 3 times through. Does that sound like a lot? I want her to get the hang of the basic lifts so she can train without me since our schedules don't usually let us both get to the gym at the same time. Any input would be most appreciated, thank you.
