Great article. I just took on my first morbidly obese client and I am reassured that I know what I am doing by reading this article. I planned on progressing slowly and doing weights down the road. I am training her 3 x a week and have core on everyday. Heavy core on one day and all exercises I will be training her how/why/when etc to use her core for everything. HR monitor is on her and she is slowly getting better at length of time on the bike and elliptical. Excited to take this journey on!
