I know a girl can use Christopher's routine (what I use), but I already tried that. Using all free weights doesn't work for this person because they are just too new to working out. They don't have fun doing it and they are scared of it. So I figured starting them off with machines would be a lot better. She feels comfortable with machines and has a good enough time doing it. So now I need help making a routine. The machines available are pretty much all the machines Nautilus makes, it's a pretty nice gym. Right now I just have 2 different workouts cycled 3 times a week: Workout 1: Squat machine Leg extensions Leg Curls Hip flexor Pull-up assist Calf raise Workout 2: squat machine bench machine row machine lat push up lat pull down fly's *All exercises are done the traditional 3 sets of 10-15 reps. She does not need to lose any major weight, but of course just like anyone else she could lose some. She just has some extra weight around her mid-section that she'd like to get rid of. Definitely not more than between 5-10lbs. I also know watching diet is important and I have her doing that, just not as intensive as we'd like. She doesn't want to use fitday as that's too much of a hassle. I know you have to be dedicated to lose/gain weight, but most people aren't as dedicated as us. So far she has stuck to the routine and she is eating 'healthy.' But she doesn't count calories and the routine is something someone with no knowledge randomly came up with (me). So please help me out.
