I have a client who is 125 lbs with 25% body fat, she is toned and lean except for her mid section. We do Pilates ab series and other Pilates excercises, ab machines, crunches, full sit ups with weights, and we’ve gotten into hoola hooping, still this is where most of her problem area is. Are there any different things we can do? Or some dietary change that may help?
Karen, while I thank you for your comment, I find your first sentence a bit rude. 25% body fat is below her percentage of body fat, considering her age. I am not the type of trainer, or person who puts down anything about anyone trying to better themselves. My client does cardio, 4 times a week for 1 hour. Not to mention the weight training we do and she does on her own. My mention of the abdominal exercises were due to the fact that my question was about the mid section, not because these are the only exercises we do, i was giving examples. And my question was meant to be answered professionally, not with your personal opinion.
