    You will get the blame for everything.

    If they don't lose weight it's your fault even if they are eating a family pizza and a cake for dinner.

    If they injure themselves it's your fault even though they were doing an exercise you didn't tell them to do.

    It's your fault when they are not motivated enough to not want to go to the gym.

    It likely won't be fun and most people won't listen to you and end up doing their own thing anyway.

    Just my opinion.
    Yeah I know what your saying which is exactly why I said no to payment, in saying this I also wont be "training" them as such in the strict sense, more of training with her maybe once a week and giving some suggestions, spotting and showing how to do exercises, the results she achieves will be completely upto her and I have made that clear to her which she understands as I don't have the time or experience to put into training someone that closely.

    4. work her every day and only start progress when you think her tech is good

    5. after a time of good progression add #2 workout include dead's here

    The way I'd generally work a women is with lighter weight and higher rep's, moving quickly between sets for the cardio/metabolic effect.
    1. she is at beginner level but has lifted weights before and is keen to lean the correct form and exercise to do.

    2. Exactly right, I wasn't planning on, I have worked out with her the last couple of weeks a couple of times and had to hold her back as wanted to push herself and keep up with me, but I thought this would only result in either injury or too much pain when getting back into it.

    3. Good advice, I was going to be doing this, she does like squats and she gave deads a go but I suggested for her not to.

    Cheers

    She can always start with just the bar, or even a light dumb bell version of it. Best way to get the groove down early imo.

    Yeah I have no real issues with her deadlifting when starting out, especially if going lightweight, but it was her first time at the end of the workout and I didn't really have time to check form and show her etc etc, but I think I will wait a couple of weeks to introduce them, and if she is still interested then I will spend the time to introduce them

    good idea, get her good at squatting.

    The dead is a ripper exercise and hard on the back.

    Already have her squatting and as low as possible, just lightweight with higher reps upto about 20 for warmups and increasing weight slowly until 10 reps is the lowest.

    Haha.. yeah dats it bro. Grab the heaviest phucking dumbbell you can carry and swing your body under it.

    It's still a curl if your body is the only thing moving
