I have been trainin with women who is pear shaped. Her trouble area and most unconditioned part of her body is legs & thighs. Our workouts are focused on leg/butt. We do alot of cicuits w stregthening, cardio & now plymetrics for her lower body. I train her at her home 2x a week. She lost 5 lbs (goal is 10)and lots of inches everywhere except for thighs (only 1 inch). Its been 3 months.
Hello Melisa Byrns,
Her conditions do not help the situation. She is making progress and may need some more time, that’s all. I would do some more full body training and bump it up to three days a week, as tolerated.
Focusing work on the leg/butt may be adding muscle which hides the fact of losing fat and inches, which happens to be her stubborn area, anyway.
Celebrate the accomplishments and keep up the balanced routine.
