Metcon Workouts for Weight Loss for Women Over 40 [Metabolic Conditioning]

Metcon Workouts for Weight Loss for Women Over 40 [Metabolic Conditioning]

Metcon Workouts for Weight Loss for Women Over 40

Metcon, otherwise known as metabolic conditioning, is a style of interval training to optimize your metabolism. It’s sweaty and designed to burn a ton of calories.

In this metcon, I lead you through a full-body, circuit workout using bodyweight and dumbbells.

There is also absolutely no jumping in this workout too. It’s all low impact.

And PS – don’t get freaked out by the time of it. While 55 minutes is a BIG commitment, 10 of those are stretching at the end. So, you could skip those and do them later on in the day if you’re short on time right now.

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of light, moderate & 1 heavy (I’m using a 30lb kettlebell for this)

THE WORKOUT

Squat clean to press
Overhead reverse lunge
Other leg / arm
Shoulder taps
4x 20sec

Crossover lunge
Other leg
DB swing
3x 50sec

DB hang clean
Shoulder presses
Front squat
Side lunge
Other leg
5 x 20sec

Quick Cardio Workout with the BOSU Ball

Quick Cardio Workout with the BOSU Ball

Quick Cardio Workout with the BOSU Ball for Women Over 40

A quick cardio workout with the BOSU ball for women over 40. Burn some calories and have some fun using one of my favourite pieces of equipment, the BOSU ball.

Hands down the BOSU ball is my go-to for cardio.

Why you might be wondering?

Because it’s so much fun!!

I’m not watching the clock like I do when I’m on my treadmill, and I’m not wondering “when the hell does this end???”. I am simply moving, sweating, smiling and generally enjoying myself the whole time.

And that’s what exercise should be all about!

If our workouts are fun and give us a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when we are done, we will stick with them.

This is called intrinsic motivation. It’s something that we do because it’s personally rewarding to us.

Unfortunately, when it comes to fitness I see more people depend on the cousin of intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation.

And this type of motivation is hard to keep the fire lit within.

Extrinsic motivation involves doing something because you want to earn a reward (like weight loss) or avoid a punishment (like going on medication). These are hard ways to motivate ourselves on a regular, day-to-day basis.

Moral of the story: find a fitness plan that you enjoy and you’re bound to be consistent with it. Let go of the reward and punish aspect of what motivates you to exercise, and funny enough, once you do you’ll see those rewards come ❤️

TOOLS NEEDED

BOSU, however a STEP would work with the last couple of moves done on the ground

THE WORKOUT

1. Plank tucks to jacks
2. Switch taps
3. Knee drive to lunge
4. Other leg
5. Double squat to 180-degree turn
4 x 30sec

AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)
Bulgarian lunge hops x8 a leg
Mountain climbers x8 ea knee
Ab crossovers x8
Do 1:00, march on the spot and wait for minute 2 & do again.
= 5 minutes total

30-Minute NO REPEAT All Standing Cardio & Abs

30-Minute NO REPEAT All Standing Cardio & Abs

30-Minute NO REPEAT All Standing Cardio & Abs Workout for Women Over 40

DAY 3 – 10 DAY ARMS & ABS CHALLENGE

This no-repeat HIIT workout is perfect for all levels! An all standing cardio and ab workout for women over 40.

You will get a bit of everything in this workout too.

While the focus is on hitting the abs, we do so with some creative dumbbell work, which also hits the legs.

And I also approve this no-repeat for a regular workout, if you want to do it again.

Most no-repeat workouts I recommend you only do once in a while because to see a change in your fitness you need multiple sets.

BUT… because this a cardio-based workout single set training is fine and you’ll keep seeing changes by adding heavier weights next time, or performing more reps in the 50 sec, as well as slowing, or speeding, your movements.

OK? OK!

different sizes of moderate dumbbells (just 1 of each needed), a heavy kettlebell – if you own one

THE WORKOUT

1. Cursey lunge with side leg lift & side crunch
2. Other side
3. Squat with kick and toe touch
