To give a little background 3 years ago my mom had a severe stroke, she is paralyzed on her left side. While in the hospital she received some physical therapy but it was negligible, so im her PT. Last month after her check up at the doctors and weighed her @ 150lb, she’s 5’2, the Doc says she needs to ideally lose 20lb, and she is a diabetic.
The first 2 1/2 years her physical therapy was geared to recovery but were she is at now is pretty much were she is going to stay. As far as what she can do with her left side is: open and close her hand, lift and push her leg, cant walk without assistance.
Ok onto my question, currently her workout is :
stationary bike for one minute
one arm DB OHP-10 reps,
DB laterals 5 rep
DB curls 5 reps
one arm cable rows 10 reps
She does that as a circuit for 30 min every day. I want to mix it up for her so its not so monotonous but im at a loss for what to do, any and all help would be great, also as far as diet she is dialed in now, due to the diabetes.
