Quick Leg Finisher Workout

Quick Leg Finisher Workout

Quick leg finisher workout for Women Over 40

Finish your workout off with this quick leg finisher workout – perfect for all levels, and no tools needed!

What is a workout finisher?

Well…. it could be your key to better fitness results for one.

A finisher is a form of metabolic conditioning that’s done at the end of a workout. The intensity of finishers makes them a great tool for providing an added calorie burn to your workout, and they can help develop greater cardiovascular fitness — especially anaerobic fitness.

This 5-minute leg finisher is great for after a cardio workout, strength workout OR after a leg workout to help you flush out the legs.

You could also do this beauty as a stand-alone if you just feel the need to work the booty and thighs… just remember to warm up a bit beforehand, please.

I love finishers! And the ones I have been releasing on the channel are some of my personal faves.

So, remember this workout next time you want to push yourself a little harder after your regular workout. 😘

Bunion Friendly Workout for Home  [Great for plantar fasciitis, bunions & weak ankles]

Bunion Friendly Workout for Home [Great for plantar fasciitis, bunions & weak ankles]

Bunion Friendly Workout for Home [Great for plantar fasciitis, bunions & weak ankles]

Total body workout, with a focus on strengthening the feet. Great for people with bunions, or plantar fasciitis, or if you need to work on your ankle strength.

Head here for a complete list of the equipment & tools I use, as well as some of my favourite supplements & foods 

Whether you have bunions or not anyone over the age of 40 needs to try this workout, and then from there, your feet will let you know whether or not you need to keep this workout in your regular rotation.

Unfortunately, age, poor footwear choices, and footwear in general can cause weaknesses in the muscles of the lower leg, as well as mobility issues.

This, in turn, can cause bunions, plantar fasciitis, and even knee, hip, or back pain.

This bodyweight workout focusses on strengthening those muscles while working on the mobility of the toe and ankle joints… while also hitting a ton of other muscles too.

Have fun and let me know what you thought of the ab finisher at the end 😀

TOOLS NEEDED

a chair and a thick rubber band

THE WORKOUT

1. 1 leg squat balance series
2. Other leg
3. Sumo squat with heel raises
4. Downward dog to plank to shoulder taps
3 x 50sec

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
