i recently was asked by a friend to make a workout routine for her...she is 40 years old and i said i would build a routine and a diet for shedding a few pounds and shaping up. anyways my real question here is would a 3 day split with 3 full body workouts be a good starter? it would consist of things like:
incline/flat db press
lat pulldown or assisted pullups
db lateral raises
db shoulder press
my other question would be what is a good rep range for her...i was thinking 12,10,10. something light but still works for her. how does all that sound? i might take deadlifts out because i dont think thats a good exercise to start her out on. any input would be very helpful...i normal work with people in there 20's. thanks alot!
