I am looking for some help, specifically from the women.
My girlfriend is looking to lose about 10-15 pounds. For reference she is 5' 7" and around 150 pounds. Most of her body fat is stored in love handles and in her legs. She has been going to the gym and doing cardio for a couple months now. However, she hasn't done much lifting.
Obviously diet is going to be the largest contributor to her success, but what lifting program do you recommend? She wants to get bikini ready for the end of summer!
Obviously she needs to be lifting weights, which she isn't doing. But should she also be sprinting or doing other HITT workouts? Should she be lifting and then doing 20 minutes of cardio after?
Any advice you can give me would be awesome. I have been reading this site for a year or two now. But I have never had to worry about losing fat, so I don't have much experience there, especially with women.
