Warm Up & Mobility Exercises Before a Workout

Warm Up & Mobility Exercises Before a Workout

Warm Up & Mobility Exercises Before a Workout for Women Over 40

It is so important that we warm-up before our workout – and warm up with the RIGHT exercises.

A good warm-up will get your muscles, joints and connective tissue ready for your workout, and this, in turn, will help you can get the most out of your workout, without hurting yourself.

In this short warm-up series, I will lead you through a total body warm-up with mobility drills that will get you and your body ready for any workout that you want to do… cardio, HIIT, strength, and even yoga.

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
