I manged to get my mom to come train with me at the gym. I’ve got her eating MUCH cleaner and keeping notes on everything. We had planned on lifting 3 days a week and her going on walks on her own (she lives about 40 mins. away). Anyway we got started great but yesterday morning she got into a small car wreck. Nothing too serious but man she is really bruised up pretty good! We went ahead and did a bit of a leg workout today but it was limited to extensions, squats with body weight (she does weigh 250), calf raises and hamstring curls. Unfortunately that is just about every exercise I can think of that she could handle. The two things I am wondering are-
- Can anyone recommend any supplements to help speed recovery? I have her taking lots of C and plenty of Zinc. (I guess Deca is out)
- I know there are concerns about too much cardio but wouldn’t two extra days of higher intensity cardio along with 1 leg day and her 3 walks be better than nothing on those two days.
Any suggestions? Thanks!
