Back, Biceps and Abs Workout for Women Over 40

Back, Biceps and Abs Workout for Women Over 40

Back, Biceps and Abs for Women Over 40

DAY 9 – 10 DAY ARMS & ABS CHALLENGE

The best back, biceps & abs workout for women over 40. No fluff, just the right exercises to hit your back, biceps and abs.

I start the workout with a 6 exercise circuit, to not only hit the back muscles, the biceps and get the core recruited functionally, but to also get the heart rate up so we can burn a few extra calories.

After that, we move into a traditional strength workout with a really short stretch at the end (I wanted to keep this workout at 40-min).

If you time and would like to do a longer stretch I’ve attached one that would complement this workout on the end screen at the end of the workout.

Have fun!

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of heavy, moderate & light dumbbells

THE WORKOUT

1. 1. 1 arm row
2. 2. Same arm bicep curl with lunge
3. Shuffles
4. 4. Other arm row
5. Other arm curl + lunge
6. Rotational squat swings
3 x 45sec

7. Alt reverse flys with thumbs up
8. Hammer curls
9. Russian twists
2 x 45sec

10. Pullover with leg drop
11. Prone Ws
12. Low back extensions
13. Plank pulls
2 x 45sec

Tricep & Ab Workout with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

DAY 4 – 10 DAY ARMS & AB CHALLENGE

A 30-minute tricep torcher and killer ab workout using dumbbells. Perfect for home, for all levels of fitness, and made for women over 40.

In my 25 years of training, there is one truth that I know. No one likes the arm jiggle.

And, the good news is we can strengthen our arms (at any age), and see the tone of the muscle with the right exercises and the right intensity (and, of course, complemented with a healthy diet πŸ˜‡)

For this workout, I recommend a couple of pairs of moderate dumbbells so you can switch out quickly and get the right intensity for each move.
