I was hoping to get some fat-loss training advice for my 55-year old mother (She's about 150 lbs @ 5'7"). I know that she would benefit from going to an actual gym with more equipment, but she absolutely hates them (So I was planning on helping her make due with what we have available here.)
Minimal Free Weights/ Dumbbells
General all-in-one workout station (Chest Press, leg extensions, seated row, lat pull down)
Swiss/ Medicine Ball
Pull-Up Bar (Which I don't see her ever using, but thought I'd throw it out there)
I'm not too familiar with fat loss routines, so that would be the first thing.. any recommendations?
Lastly, she keeps complaining about her feet problems (she has "Plantar Fascitis"). Plus, joint pain in her knees and hands. She says that her hands get incredibly sore from holding small dumbbells for way too long, and she can't do lunges or squats. I'm of the mentality that you should work-through pain, but I understand that she's 55 and doesn't share my same sometimes crazy sentiments. She just wants to lose a little weight, look better, and feel better. Any help/ advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
