    Either way she will be richer for the experience, good for you.

    And we have all experienced stops and starts.

    Yeah I figure is she takes 1 thing away from it then she has gained something, she was going to the gym prior to her trip, not sure what she was doing then but she does have a little experience...

    What about a pull / push workout twice a week (no, not of your man hood haha).

    Use compound moves to hit lots of muscles in one shot and that way you won't have to spend too much time showing her the ropes (in case she turns out to be a time waster)

    Start with the basics before moving into barbell squats, deadlifts etc... I like to start clients off with exercises that will allow them to learn movement patterns with light weights e.g. kettle bell squats to box, seated shoulder press with back support. Machines are also great for beginners as they require more isolated movements. Hope this helps

    Youve got that all wrong sister.

    you always, always - start with the basics.

    barbell squat
    deadlift
    chin
    dip
    standing press

    assess and go from there.

    imo, start with whatever exercises you like. just make sure you pick a decent exercise for whatever body part being targeted.

    just try an leave 2 inch bench presses to elite powerlifters.

    This is an old thread to bump, Jenny. You may as well tell us about yourself here. What is your background in your own sports and training, where do you work as a trainer and all that
