She needs to take some time and build slowly into weight. Right now everything feels shaky for her, and she needs to be allowed some time to adapt to the movements using a moderate weight, and to slowly condition herself to the demands of the program.

After this point then she can slowly add weight or reps.

It is better to start with a moderate weight and add a rep than to push her close to failure on every set right now. Give her some time to build confidence, and allow time for neuromuscular adaptation.

Initial strength gains, from my understanding, come from neuromuscular adaptation and not from any muscle building that is taking place.
