Hello, my name is Dana Sanders, former NFL running back turned fitness trainer. We are here today at Fitness Evolution in Seattle, Washington with LIVESTRONG.com. Today's question, what type of weight training should an obese person do? Now, I don't like to say obese, I just call them big boned, you know so I have some suggestions for you and these will work. Alright usually when I'm working with certain people with a little extra weight, I like to keep them moving and what I do is I set up stations, like they will have a station where they are doing step ups, a station where they are doing curls, a station where they are doing obliques and one where they are doing deadlifts, that's just to get them started. So for instance, the first one is right here. It's a step up and they will step down and usually this takes place in their home because most of the people I work with aren't really too comfortable going to the gym. So they'll do this and then what will happen is they will step off and then they will go to their other leg, step up and down and we'll usually do this about 35 to 45 seconds and my main goal is to keep their heart rate up. The next thing they will come to the next exercise, curls, bicep curls and same thing, you want to keep your elbows against your body and you want to five it about 35 or 45 seconds. Alright, then we head over to deadlifts. The reason we do the deadlifts is because this is one of the harder exercises for them to do and it winds them, it really works the cardiovascular. So what I have them do is put their feet about shoulder width apart, squat, head up, bring the weight up and down, up and down. Again, 35, 45 seconds and the next thing they will do, this is for the obliques, hand on the side, and pull, stretch it down as far as you can and pull, stretch it down and pull. And again, all these exercises are right about 35 to 45 seconds. Then, we will get a break for about 10 to 20 seconds and it starts over again. And those are my suggestions for the type of workouts an obese or big boned person should do.
