I originally posted this in the Beginners section, it got a lot of looks but no replys, so I’m trying again in here…I hope you can advise!
THis one’s a bit out of left field but I have a new client just started with me and she suffers from PCOS. First time I’ve come across it, I’ve done some reading up on it and there seems to be a lot of mixed messages.
Anyone ever worked with someone like this or have any of the women on here got it and trained with it?
My client is 27, she weighs 220lbs (100kg) and only 1.57cm tall (5’4?) - 51% body fat!
It’s her first week and I’ve put her on a 5 day a week program.
3 days total body bodyweight work
2 days steady state cardio
Restricted her to 1600kcal a day, with a ratio of 45% protein, 30% carbs and 25% fats.
After the first two weeks bodyweight training I will bring in the free weights and compound moves. Possibly adding an HIIT session into her cardio every other week instead of steady state cardio.
ANy ideas or suggestions?
