DAY 11 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE

Save the knees with this knee-friendly cardio workout.

Join me for 26-minutes of no jumping, no lunges cardio moves where we target the hamstrings, glutes and outer hip muscles (glute med) – all needed for healthy knees.

And… this is also a workout I recorded twice.

The first one I recorded was alright, but I didn’t really like how it flowed.

So, a few minutes after filming it, and doing some debating in my head (about whether or not I should re-do it), I wiped the sweat off my forehead, fixed my hair, re-jigged the workout and then filmed it again.⁣

Sigh. The joys of being a perfectionist.

I hope you like it!

Grab some dumbbells for this back, biceps and shoulders workout for women over 40.

DAY 10 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE 

This is a great workout for anyone who wants to improve their posture, or for people who have some shoulder issues (due to poor posture), and this workout also rocks for people who want to also work on their shoulder and upper spine mobility, as well get a little ab burn while they’re at it.

I start the workout with a warm-up and mobility series for the shoulders and T-spine (thoracic), and then from there we move into a traditional strength workout for the back, biceps, and shoulders. And then once we’ve tired those muscles out I finish the workout off with a quick little ab drill and then some lovely stretches for the arms and back.

Quads and Abs Workout with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Quads and Abs Workout with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Quads and Abs Workout with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Train your quads using dumbbells, a chair and your body weight so you keep your knees strong! Perfect for women over 40.

 DAY 9 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE

This workout was a challenge for me to program because the bulk of training the quads require our knees to flex.

Exercises like squats, step-ups and lunges are the kings and queens to strengthening the quads.

But, these are also movements that can aggravate women’s knees because let’s face it, once we hit 40 and older our knees can’t take a ton of loaded squats day in, day out.

We have to be kinder to our joints in order to keep on training.

For this workout, I believe I got the right mix of exercises though. Exercises that will strengthen those quads of yours while keeping your knees happy.

However, as always, please listen to your body and sub any move with a bridge pattern if the squats are getting too much for ya.

Deal? Deal!

PS – the timed intervals are also short for today’s workout because I want you to lift heavy. You will get fewer reps in, but let’s see if you can lift heavier than normal for those reps.

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of moderate, one heavy and sturdy chair

THE WORKOUT

1. Constant tension squats
3 x 30sec

2. Quad focussed single leg step up (or alternative)
3. Other leg
3 x 30sec

4. Depth squats
3 x 30

5. Straight leg lifts over DB or your water bottle
3 x 30sec

6. Other leg
3 x 30sec

7. Wall sit series
2 minutes

8. Pop squats
8 x 20sec

9. Weight straight leg crunches
10. Russian twists
11. Plank DB pull thrus
12. Side crunch
13. Other side
2 x 30sec

Grab some dumbbells for this chest and triceps workout for women over 40.

DAY 8 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE

After this workout, you will not want to lift anything for a couple of days… haha.

Just joking!

As with all of my workouts you can make them as easy, or as hard, as you like. And this workout is the perfect example of that!

Because we use dumbbells for most of the workout it is super easy for you to adjust the intensity. And while there are a couple of bodyweight moves, making it harder to scale the exercises, I do show you how you can by simply adjusting your hips.

Sound good?

Awesome! Now, let’s go.

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of light, moderate and heavy dumbbells + a chair

THE WORKOUT

1. Wide + narrow push-ups
3 x 8 reps

2. Chest press
3. Skullcrusher
3 x 40sec

4. 1 arm chest fly
5. Same arm across body tricep extension
2 x 40sec
