That is a tough part to lean down for females. We tend to hold a lot of our fat there. I have my clients do lunges with the smith machine with one foot on a portable step. It targets the upper quad. Also doing front squats on the smith machine helps as well. I recommend high reps to shed the fat. If she has been with you for 5 months then there is muscle present you just need to lean her down to get to the definition. Good Luck! :0)
It’s hard to say when one doesn’t know how you are utilizing the fitness variables meaning…
Five months doesn’t tell me anything. Is it five months three sessions a weeks, five months, one session a week.
Did you do one rep max testing so that you are able to use the correct percentage of her 1RM so that she makes hypertrophy gains.
Difficult to say.
The workout variables are as follows:
1. Frequency = 3 times a week
2. Intensity = 60-70% MHR
3. 2 days @ 1hr and 1 day @1.5hrs
4. The work outs are split into aerobic with some strength training and high intensity cardio at the end with a light cool down.
Her diet is pretty good. Not a lot of high fat foods or sweets. It is really balanced.
May I suggest engaging as many muscles of the thigh as possible. My client Mindy was pleased that her skinny jeans were no longer suffocating her thighs, smile. Start with some leg press or body weight squats with and overhead press, followed immediately by a marching hip press or Glute Bridge. Then the Hip adductors followed immediately by hip abductors. Next, Seated Leg lifts for the hip flexors: raise the leg straight up first for 5 reps (ensuring that the heel clears at least the arch of the foot resting on the floor) the lift the leg up and out away from the body at a 45 degree angle for 5 reps and then cross the lifting leg over the leg resting on the floor and then lift off the resting leg for 5 reps. Finally throw in a modified mountain climber which I call the floater or the Runner, smile.
