When I first met Daisy, it was obvious that she was athletic and game for anything I threw at her, the only thing was, like most people, her schedule was packed! She plays soccer twice a week, has two kids and a very demanding full time job!
From April until May, I only trained Daisy once a week.
Since she is mostly seated at work, we spent the first 10 minutes stretching the tight muscles around her chest, shoulders and upper back. The next 30 minutes with Daisy was focused on athletic drills to develop powerful legs for her sport.
During Daisy’s “rest,” she performed corrective exercises to strengthen the muscles in her rear delts and lower trapezius to better her posture. Diet wise, I asked Daisy to make three changes only: Fish oil, protein at breakfast and a protein rich meal/shake mid-day while at work.
In a few weeks time, reports of her usual four o’clock energy crash was disappearing, as well as an inch off of her waist! When June came around Daisy had a time to train twice a week while a request to do some upper body work.
We stuck to our usual stretches at the beginning, added some very heavy leg exercises and then the last 35 minutes worked really hard on her triceps, shoulders, biceps and back.
Daisy is off on a trip to Ecuador right now but when she gets back, there’s lots more work I have in store for her! As you can see, in the progress pictures, her posture has improved and her arms are looking toned! Great job Daisy!
