Standing Ab Workout for Women Over 40

Standing Ab Workout for Women Over 40

Standing Ab Workout for Women Over 40

Standing abs workout – no planks, or crunches! Great for diastasis recti.

This standing only ab workout is great if you have diastasis recti, or if planks and traditional ab work bother your wrists, shoulders or low back, or if you just don’t feel like getting down on the ground.

I recommend this workout before a cardio or strength workout, and I also could see this as a great little “quick” workout for those days you don’t have the oomph or the time.

…And I hope you like my assistant who appears halfway through.

TIP: Standing ab exercises are not going to give the “burn” that you would feel with traditional mat ab exercises… but that does not mean that your abs are not firing up.

If you can feel them stabilizing your spine, and your waist muscles engaged with the twisting movements then you are golden. If you don’t feel them, then I recommend that you slow the movement down, put your mind in your muscle, and focus on the abs. OK? OK!

Low Impact Booty Band Cardio for Women Over 40 DAY 14

Low Impact Booty Band Cardio for Women Over 40

Grab your booty band for this low impact booty band cardio workout for women over 40.

DAY 14 – 14-Day Booty Love Challenge

Start with Day 1 here

⁣This workout is going to sneak up on you! In fact, it snuck up on me. When I designed I thought maybe it was a tad tame for you… and then I started recording it and realized, “Nah, it’s just right”.

While we use a booty band in this workout, you can definitely get a good burn in without one… but if you do own one this may quickly become your favourite booty band workout 🙂

PS – the tree trimmers did finish as soon as I stopped recording… just like I predicted.

TOOLS NEEDED

booty band (optional), chair if you are a beginner or have sensitive wrists or shoulders with high planks

THE WORKOUT

1. Squat with glute kickback
2. Plank tap outs
3. Squat with leg abduction
4. Plank with leg raise
5. Shuffles
6 x 20sec

DAY 11 14-Day Booty Love Challenge

Start with Day 1 here

⁣No repeat workouts are a lot of people’s favourite way to train, but is this a great way to train? ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Doing 1 set only?⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Not really. Especially if you are an int/adv exerciser. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You see you need multiple sets to really fatigue (and therefore build) the muscles.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But… once in a while, or when you’re short on time, or if you’re a beginner then they can be a ton of fun.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Just don’t use them as YOUR ONLY training protocol if you want to see results.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I say this because every time I release a No Repeat workout I get a TON of comments about how it’s the preferred way people like to train, that they don’t like doing multiple sets, they find multiple sets boring, blah blah blah.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Multiple sets are what you need, single sets are fun once in a while.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Got it? ✌⁣⁣
