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?
getting the hormones levels tested is a good idea, but in case the client does not want to undergo a test, prescribing a good antioxidant formula is a must for almost everyone in the world today.
keep the solution to the problems simple, don’t complicate. the client will love that. this problem of clients with a thought that weight training will bulk them up is common.
for a basic solution tell her to take 3-4 gms of fish oil, and 4 tablespoons of L-carnitine daily, divided into 2 doses, morning and evening. you will see the results in days.
