Default Post Pregnancy

the girl im with had a kid two years ago, and finally has the motivation to burn off that baby weight and get back to the fit way she use to be. im trying to help and be as supportive as i can, but i have educated myself specifically for me and my body. i need to know as much as i can to help her train effectively. my questions are, what lifting should i have her focus on? i know i should have her build a little mass/tone up on days she is not doing cardio (or 6 hours apart or so) but i would like to know what i should recommend? full body/core exercises? or should i start her on a muscle group specific per day type routine? or just an upper body day lower body day type deal? also is only 4 days of cardio a week enough? i assumed its about intput vs output for the most part, meaning she would have to do cardio almost every day to be burning fat consistantly and not burning it 4 days a week and adding 3 days a week.... thanks in advance for any advice....

best routine i ever seen for this kind of thing is that body for life program. 6 days on, one cheat day.

day one: upper body. two favorite exercises for each body part. 2 sets 10 reps.

day two: 20 minutes cardio.

day three:lower body/abes. two exercises each body part. 2 sets 10 reps.

day four: 20 minutes cardio

start over routine. check out www.bodyforlife.com. it will probably be just about perfect for her... its proven and safe and she should have no problems with it. it's real easy to follow the nutrition programs especially if you help her out with it.

thanks a lot. ill have her start on that. she is just getting started, so im having her ease into it with just cardio... i also just got reading the article in mens health magazine explaining a full body workout is a great way to kick up the metabolism up to 39 hours post workout and burn a lot of fat! also said 8-15 reps, 75 second intervals, and recommended supersetting two muscle groups, so thats what i have been on right now, along with a stricter diet, to shed the love handles i developed over winter.
