I have a client who went through the sleeve gastrectomy just over 2 months ago, and she’s recently been cleared for more strenous exercise, so I’ve put her on a strength routine that she does 3 times/week. She’s also doing a couch25k program, with 1 active rest day in the week. Diet is used as directed, at ~650 calories per day. She’s doing everything right, but still experiencing a stall in weight loss. Any suggestions for types and frequency/duration of training? Any tips on mixing it with nutrition?
at 2 months after that surgery, I would not change anything. Chances are that her weight loss will pick up again in a short while.
It is generally a good idea, though, to modify her routine from time to time and include circuit type training such as the peripheral heart action system as it has a strong cardio component in the strength routine.
