    She is trying to slim down after having our children. So something pretty basic would be cool I just don't know for a woman so if someone could help it would be cool!

    How frequently is she wanting to workout?

    Men and women don't train differently. The difference is in her macros and amount of cardio.

    She has been going about five days a week! I know she should be doing lighter weight more reps. Are there routines designed to develop a woman's physique as apposed to man! I know I see a lot of women doing a lot of exercises I wouldn't be caught dead doing! I want her to have her own routine so she feels like it's all hers!

    I'm not sure what you mean by "lighter weight, higher reps", unless you're getting fitness advice from Cosmo.

    Men and women don't train differently. She needs to track her macros to lose weight. Any routine a male would use to cut and preserve muscle is what she should use.

    "Slimming" means reducing size. For a woman with baby weight, losing that baby weight and reducing her total body fat will accomplish that.

    In my opinion, the same workout a man would do to reduce their total body fat will do the same for women. It would take your average woman months and months of intensive sustained training to make the kind of muscular gains that would increase her body size, and that is just not even a concern for her.

    I recommend a simple three day split with mostly compound exercises, and three or four weekly cardio sessions. I hate cardio machines personally, but cardio kickboxing/outdoor biking are fun and a good way to increase endurance and decrease body fat.

    Your woman can't look like a man just from working out. Physiologically impossible. I do the same workout a man would do.

    While this is great advice, a fitness novice is probably not going to track their macros, as someone who is already well versed and in good shape would need to do to reach their (considerably higher than average) goals.

    Luckily, someone in her position can see tremendous improvement with training, and then with increasing fruit and vegetable intake and eliminating added sugars.

    let her combine cardio and weights..start with 10 mns treadmill then switch to 5 minutes weights doing one or two body parts high reps
    then switch to 3-5 minutes elliptical then again 5 minutes weights then 5 minutes bike etc...
    a 45 minutes workout like that would really get her in shape while losing extra weight

    it's not hard. tracking macros goes hand in hand with learning about proper nutrition. fitness is made in a gym, physique happens based on what you eat. if someone is motivated enough to go to the gym 5 days/week, they should be motivated enough to make a food log. especially novice's looking for results to maintain motivation.

    Jmedic giving good advice here^^^ Fitday.com is user friendly, the wife and I use it (separate accounts) together and we keep each other in check by both of us being on the same regimen, comparing our cals for the day, etc... we are both involved in each others "daily food biz" which makes it fun and helps motivation by doing it together, I hope that made sense...

    imo, if you're not keeping count of what you eat, you're wasting your time.
