    Oxyelite pro would be a nice addition.

    Too long a weight session and not enough cardio.

    If you insist on full body than do:

    Monday - Full body A - cardio
    Tuesday - OFF - cardio optional
    Wednesday - Full body B - cardio
    Thursday - OFF - cardio optional
    Friday - Full body A - cardio
    OFF - cardio optional
    OFF - cardio optional
    Monday - Full Body B - cardio
    Tuesday - OFF - cardio optional
    repeat....

    Reduce her resistance training to 30 mins and increase her cardio to 30 to 45 mins. Unless she is looking to train and be built like a bodybuilder than don't have her train like one...IMHO. She can easily loose the fat and the key is the cardio. There is nothing wrong wuth her gaining some muscle but she has a lot of fat to loose at that height and weight. She'll do just fine if she sticks with something very simple that allows her to easily have success.

    First, have her focus on FAT loss and NOT "weight" loss, since scale weight is IRrelevant - it is BODY COMPOSITION that is important!

    I agree with David - an hour of resistance training is a little much; 30-45 minutes is plenty (I rarely spend more than this lifting weights). So is doing HIIT post-weights, IMO - if you're going to have her do HIIT, do it on days she is NOT lifting. If she's a beginner to resistance training, then 12-15 reps is fine to start out with, but she could even do 10-12, or 8-12 reps depending on the exercise - if she wants fat loss, then lifting high reps and light weight is not the best way to do it, IMO. Also, if she IS a beginner (or even if she's just starting training again after a break), then doing Full-Body two days in a row is not ideal and not something I would recommend; she should be having a day between such sessions for adequate recovery.

    You're better off doing something like:

    Monday - Full-Body
    Tuesday - HIIT
    Wednesday - Full-Body
    Thursday - HIIT
    Friday - Full-Body
    Saturday - HIIT
    Sunday - Day OFF

    Yes, with the right nutrition plan and training programme individualized specifically for her, she will get results. However, as far as nutrition, you don't want to starve her - 1,600 calories is extremely low; make sure she is eating ENOUGH!

    I highly recommend that you take the time to read The 3 Keys to Fat Loss - it contains comprehensive information on nutrition, supplementation (only the basic staples required!), and training (inclusive of a sample programme for beginners and advanced trainees) for effective and successful fat loss. For more articles on training for fat loss, see here.

    If you want to ensure that she makes the best progress and gets the best results possible, and are not sure on how to go about doing it yourself after reading through everything, then I recommend having a professional trainer design and create your girlfriend a nutrition plan (this is going to be the key in her success) and training programme (still very important re fat loss) specific for HER.

    Hi,
    She needs to start a balance diet and exercise which will help her to reduce the weight.

    Hey guys! I'm in the same boat. I just had a baby 5 months ago and still have weight to lose. I'm 5'2 and 136lbs. What I've found to work the best for me is eating healthy of course, I'm at about 1380 calories and I do CrossFit. Which combines weight lifting and cardio. It has been working decent besides the fact I've been slacking. I agree with everyone else though: it's about losing fat not weight!
