I have 2 clients that are in a weight loss training program. 1 is IN menopause and doing well. a little at a time the other client is POST menopause and hasn’t lost anything in 10 weeks. They are both eating well and are both within their caloric daily intake. Not sure how to change up the POST menopause program. good balance of cardio, functional training but very little weights. (she doesnt like resistance training) please any advice i would be grateful for.
It may also not be how much she’s eating, but what she’s eating. Different foods can effect the body in different ways as hormones change. Dr. Christine Northup, a pioneer in women’s health, writes a lot about this.
I also had a woman who was resistant to weight training. Turns out it wasn’t strength training at all that she dislike, just lifting weights. So we started with bodyweight and pilates based movements. After 3 months, she was loving the changes she saw in her body and eager to try more! You may want to dig a little deeper to see what she doesn’t like specifically about strength training.
