Program ideas for the Mrs.
I know nothing about programming, which is why I love SS. I just do (or at least try to do) what Rip says. My wife was expressed interest in starting to lift weights in an effort to improve her health, but she doesn't have the time to dedicate to SS so I'm at a loss. By that I mean her job requires her to work 40hrs-60hrs a week and she's a dog instructor most evenings of the week so realistically I'm thinking she'll be able to train for 2 days a week. I know my 2.5 hrs in the basement training aren't convincing her that it's the right program for her. I've been following the women doing SS thread in the nutrition forum to try and gain some ideas on how to proceed at least diet wise for her.
We also have different goals in mind. I'm trying to gain as much weight as she's trying to lose. That said we took "before" pictures of ourselves (and our overweight adopted dog) on the weekend. She's hoping this provides the push she needs to really get her act together (her words, not mine). I do know programs should match end goals and while mine is to gain size and strength, her's isn't.
We have a half rack, two barbells, 305 lbs in weights, 5lb - 75lb adjustable dumbbells and various resistance bands. I've asked in advance if it's okay to post her stats if need be and she's agreed.
I appreciate any advice/suggestions that come my way.
