I have a 17-year-old female client. She’s 5’11” and 133 pounds measuring 36-26-37. She wants to get her hips to at least a 36 inches, preferably in two to three weeks. Any suggestions? Any cautions due to her age?
The most effective way to reduce body fat, tone and shape muscles is by following an integrated training program combined with good nutritional support. Losing body fat will decrease anthropometric measurements. This is made possible through a process called "thermodynamics." This basically states that if caloric expenditure is greater than caloric intake, stored body fat will be utilized for energy purposes, thus “burning” more body fat. It is important to note that the intensity of your workouts will require your client to consume a scientifically-based minimum amount of calories. To find more about this, consult a nutritional specialist.
Combining proper nutrition with an integrated approach is very effective in reducing body fat and toning muscles. An integrated training program focuses on core stabilization, balance, power, strength and flexibility training. This variety in training effectively conditions all muscle fiber types for strength, power and endurance – all of which are important in everyday life.
