Glute Band Tabata Workout

Glute Band Tabata Workout

Glute Band Tabata Workout for Women Over 40

I am not going to lie. This workout is hard and you aren’t going to like me very much when we get to exercise #3.

It’s tough, it burns, and it kinda sucks.

BUT…. I was very proud of myself after the 8 rounds, and now I am very proud of you too ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

You see, for this Tabata workout, we do each exercise for 8 rounds before we move onto the next exercise. Typically we circuit through our Tabata moves – but not for today’s awesome little glute cardio workout.

You might be thinking, “PJ, why are you being so mean to me? I have never done anything to you??!!!”. And that’s a great question, and I agree you’ve done nothing to me. You are super-duper amazing.

However…. you come to my workouts to see results, and in order to see results I need to keep changing the training principles, the exercises and the tempo of movement so you keep kicking a** with your progress.

So, little grasshopper, this workout is with the best intentions. Even if it does suck ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‡

TOOLS NEEDED

glute band (however you can do this without one)

THE WORKOUT

1. Banded ankle jumping jacks
2. High knees
3. Plank jacks
4. 180-degree squat jump

8 x 20sec for each exercise

5. Banded bridge with 3-sec pause
3 x 30sec

6. Standing hip extension
2 x 30sec

Full Body Strength Workout Using the BOSU

Full Body Strength Workout Using the BOSU

Full Body Strength Workout Using the BOSU for Women Over 40

This workout is very simple in its programming. I took four compound, multi-joint exercises that train as many muscles as possible, and I lead you through those moves for three sets.

We do not dick around in this workout ๐Ÿ˜‚ We are in, we lift and then we’re out.

This is the perfect strength training workout to do when you are short on time.

And, if you do not have a BOSU ball I show how you can do each move without one.

So, no worries babycakes I always got your back ๐Ÿ˜˜But, the BOSU does add an element of fun that the ol’ ground just does not provide.

TOOLS NEEDED

BOSU (optional though), and a pair of light & heavy dumbbells

THE WORKOUT

1. Bulgarian lunge
2. Other leg
3. Chest press
4. Reverse flys
5. Alternating ab crossovers

3 x 40sec

EMOM Workout

EMOM Workout

EMOM Workout for Women Over 40

โฃEvery minute on the minute (EMOM) workouts are a ton of fun. I’ve started using them as little finishers at the end of some of my classes – and this workout here marks my third full EMOM on the channel.

ย Basically, we have a series of exercises that change every minute on the minute.

So, the quicker you finish your set, the longer the break you’ll get before the next exercise.

It’s as simple as that.

For today’s workout, I’ve also added a dumbbell so we really get the muscles working while conditioning the whole body.

The one caveat… you’ve got to be able to count to 14 ๐Ÿ‘Š๐Ÿ˜œ

That may seem cheeky. I mean even 5-year-olds can count to 14, right!?! But, it’s a different ballgame when you are working hard, listening to me, trying to keep your form crisp, getting yourself ready for the next exercise AND having to remember to count to 14 for each exercise.

Let’s just say this workout is a heart and a brain pumper.

TOOLS NEEDED

1 moderate dumbbell

THE WORKOUT

1. 1-arm alt thrusters – 14
2. Squat press – 14
3. Alt power snatch – 14
4. Jump squats with DB – 14
5. Woodchops – 14

4 rounds

Fix Rounded Shoulders In 3 Steps

Fix Rounded Shoulders In 3 Steps

Fix Rounded Shoulders In 3 Steps for Women Over 40

With age comes wisdom… and unfortunately, at times, bad posture and rounded shoulders.

While we can all agree that rounded shoulders is not an attractive look, it is a lot more insidious than just pure vanity.

Rounding of the shoulders can cause neck pain, shoulder pain, and even back pain. Leaving us unable to reach our potential in our workouts, and possibly making day-to-day tasks uncomfortable.

What are the causes? Usually, tight pecs (chest muscles), biceps, upper traps, levator scap and lats, and overstretched (and weak) mid/lower traps and rhomboids.

In this workout, we cover the three aspects needed to improve rounded shoulders: mobility, strength, and flexibility.

Of course, we can’t fix the shoulders completely if you don’t address your everyday posture.

Fixing these daily tasks that may contribute to rounded shoulders:

– using a smartphone or tablet
– using a computer or laptop
– sitting for long periods
– driving a vehicle
– bending over repeatedly
– carrying heavy objects all-day

I chat about this during the workout too.

Tools needed:

nothing

The Workout

Mobility:
1. 90/90 t-spine reach 30-60sec
2. T-spine opener 30-60sec
3. Open book & rainbows 30-60 sec

Strength:
4. Prone angels
5. Push up presses
6. Y & T raises 3 x 30sec

Stretches:
Neck, levator scap, lats, t-spine, pecs, pec minor
