Get the heart rate up, while working the upper body muscles and core with this ladder workout for women over 40.

DAY 2 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE

I think you are going to LOVE this workout. It’s intense, it will get results, and the time flies by.

For this upper body workout, I decided to switch things up and do a ladder workout, counting reps instead of using timed intervals.

I explain at the beginning of the workout what to do if your reps don’t match mine, as well as how to modify the burpees… or get rid of them altogether.

In total, we will be performing 75 reps of each exercise, while touching a ton of calories.

You ready? Awesome! Let’s begin.

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of light, moderate & heavy and a chair for beginners

THE WORKOUT

1. Burpees
2. 2 arm row
3. Plank jax (or alt given)
4. Chest press
5. See saw plank (or alt given)
6. V sit DB presses

25 reps
20 reps
15 reps
10 reps
5 reps⁣

Upper Body & Cardio Intervals Using 1 Dumbbell for Home for Women Over 40

Grab a dumbbell or kettlebell for this upper body & cardio workout.

Ok, I am going to tell ya right now… I was a mess filming this workout.

Hahahaha 😂 I don’t know if it’s because I hadn’t eaten in a while at time of filming and it was the lack of carbs, or if it was the heat, or if this is just me now at 50???

But by the middle of the workout, I kinda lose my ability to speak English and count.

Don’t worry, the workout rocks, it’s the fitness instructor who needs some help.

If anything I think I will keep you entertained and if you ever thought I must do some mad editing and re-takes of my videos, this workout will set those myths aside.

One take, one chance. That’s how I roll.

1 moderate dumbbell (or kettlebell), and a chair

THE WORKOUT

1. Burpee over the dumbbell

TRX Upper Body Tabata-Type Workout for Women Over 40

Train the chest, arms, back, shoulders and core with this TTX upper body workout, Tabata-style.

Not sure I will do another TRX workout.

Sorry. It’s just really hard filming where my TRX is now.

I did my best though, with the space that I have. But, on some moves it’s hard to see me and on others I almost disappear off-camera (haha).

I also have to film this with my garage door fully opened (for lighting). Which was a tad awkward with people were walking by.

Hello there neighbourhood! I promise I’m not a crazy person talking to myself while I work out. Honest.

But…. you will get a great shoulder & tricep burn with this workout. Guaranteed!

And I also hope I toast your back, chest, and core as well.

As always leave a comment down below and let me know what you thought.

TOOLS NEEDED

TRX

THE WORKOUT

1. Atomic push-up
2. Plank
8 x 20sec

3. Under the TRX pull ups
4. Twisted toe touch crunches
8 x 20sec

5. Chest press
6. Tricep extensions
8 x 20sec

7. Reverse flys
8. Bicep curls
8 x 20sec

Shoulders & Abs with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Hit the shoulders and the abs with a pair of dumbbells and your bodyweight.

So, I filmed this workout twice. The first time I thought, “yeah, that was alright”, and then put the camera away and continued on with my day.

But, the “it was alright” inner comment to myself was bothering the sh*t out of me all day. I don’t want to (knowingly) put out content/videos/workouts that are “meh” at best.

So, I deleted the workout on the camera, re-worked the program and filmed it again the next day.

And… now I am happy to share this with you.

Have fun and I hope you like it!

a pair of light & moderate dumbbells & a can of food (something really light in case you need it for our final series)
