Hey all, like I said I need some help. I picked up a new “training” partner recently. It’s a guy from work. Very dedicated and driven, so intensity is not the problem.
He has recently lost quite a bit of weight. And still has quite a bit more to go. He is hoovering right around 4 bills. At his highest point he said he was 504.
So my problem is, finding good exercises that we can do with his limited mobility and excessive weight. We worked back the other day and it became evident that things like bent-over BB rows just won’t work.
His health has improved greatly over the past year, and I would love to help a “brotha” out. I know there will be a lot of whole body work out guys, and other routine info. I would be happy to hear it. But at this point I figure that I can just have him tag along with me till he starts getting more familiar with the weight room and what good movements are. I figure that him slowing me down will be worth it in the long run. It’s not like I compete or anything. Lifting is more a hobby for me.
The wife says I just picked myself up a “project”. While I can see that, I would rather look at it as a spreading the gospel.
Any advice would be useful.
