Hey guys, so I’m not a certified personal trainer but I will be training one of my friends moms as a gift I promised a while back.
I have a lot of experience exercising, and a lot of experience coaching younger people, but I’ve never coached someone older before.
I looking for any input or advice.
The lady I will be training is interested in becoming stronger and more conditioned. However, she is training to lose fat essentially, not for athletics. I was thinking of having her do a basic lifting program with an A day Bday type thing 3 times a week with 3 sets of 20 reps for every exercise, since she has never lifted before. Then, two days a week I would take her through a circuit I created.
What do you guys think? Keep in mind it can’t be too intense and she is just starting out.
