Hi there, just wondering if someone could look over the routine I have for my wife.
I’ve been training for many years following the 5x5 workout with heavy weights. Have also done a lot of running and marathon training prior to this. My wife has asked me to design her a fitness and weight loss program and to be honest I have struggled!
Although I know quite a bit about bodybuilding, designing a program for her has been a challenge, I’m just not familiar enough with training for her goals and worry about doing the wrong thing!
Below is what she is currently doing but she is becoming disheartened with not seeing results (her goal is weight loss and toning although I would not describe her as drastically overweight).
All her training is done at home and she commits to three days per week.
HIIT routine consisting of:
Kettlebell swings - 6kg x5 10kg x5 16kg x5
Barbell clean and press 15kg x5
Repeated 10 times
20 mins exercise bike, steady pace.
Sometimes abs work if she isn’t too tired
30 min exercise bike. Interval training
As for Monday
If anyone has suggestions of how to improve this they would greatly received. Be as critical as you like! Like I say I am an enthusiast when it comes to my own training but am really worried about designing a plan that might not get her the results she wants or worse injure her or put her off training! I’ve never had to deal with weight loss as in addition training I’m a commercial fisherman and my job keeps my weight down!
Many thanks guys and girls
