    Slimming down before wedding

    December 19, 2015, 3:33 pm

    Hey whats up Hermanites,

     

     

    This is my first post so not sure the format of a blog is supposed to go. My fiance and I have been working out. She had a knee injury from cross-fit almost 2 years ago that left her with a bruised meniscus on her right knee. Her doctor told her surgery would not be needed but physical therapy would. After being discharged from her physical therapist she has been able to do workouts, but the ones that burn the most calories have been left out because of her fear that she will reinjure herself. Anytime she does light running she has to stop about 3 minutes into it because soreness begins to set in at the same spot she had her injury. The same applies to an ellipical.

    Recently we have been using a Row machine going at a steady pace for 20 minutes. We want to maximize her fat burning so she can be as slim as possible for our wedding coming up in early March. She is 5'4", 170 lbs. Scott if you have some specific routines she can follow I would greatly appreciate it. I don't know How I can get a notice of a reply to this thread so if you can email me to the one I have on file. I will check the posting periodically. Thanks a million.

    David,

     

    This is the place to go and we are happy to help. Many of us check the forums regularly.

     

    What you described is why I am not a fan of cross-fit. Most cross-fit gyms are filled with people with no long term experience in proper form and technique and are charged with training people. Most of the WODs are harsh on the body of non-athletes and potentially dangerous from an injury perspective.

     

    The best thing you and your fiance can do that burns a ton of calories and is easy on the joints is swimming. This is excellent for people of all ages, sizes, and conditions.

    You don't need to go crazy and you can build up your endurance in a matter of weeks.

    I am so sorry to hear that. Would she be able to do any of the HIIT workouts in the @exclusive section? They are REAL TIME workouts we do together and as long as she moves at her own pace I don't see why she wont be able to shred some calories.

    Is she wrapping her knee before she trains? Any support is going to go a LOOONG way my friend.
