Bodyweight Workout Low Impact for Women Over 40

Workout at home, in under 30-minutes, with my low impact bodyweight cardio for women over 40.

⁣I loved filming this little workout. The sun was shining, the moves were flowing and there was no jumping to be had.

Using compound exercises, to keep the heart rate up, we move through six exercises with a special little glute finisher at the end.

I, also, break each move down and show further modifications for people with sensitive knees.

Working Out With An Injury

Working Out With An Injury

When You Should & Shouldn’t Work Out

The following are my talking notes, and a snippet of the video above:

WHEN YOU SHOULD AND SHOULDN’T PUSH THROUGH THE PAIN DURING YOUR WORKOUT – AND TIPS ON WHAT TO TRAIN INSTEAD.

ON A VERY BASIC LEVEL YOU HAVE TO BE ABLE TO TOLERATE SOME PAIN DURING EXERCISE. (SUPERPOWER) IT’S NOT ALL RAINBOWS AND BUTTERFLIES. FOR A MUSCLE TO INCREASE IN STRENGTH IT MUST FEEL AN INCREASE IN THE STRESS – YOU’LL HEAR THAT USUALLY REFERRED TO AS “FEEL THE BURN”.

THIS IS SIMPLY LACTIC ACID THAT ACCUMLATES WHEN THE MUSCLE CAN’T GET THE OXYGEN IT NEEDS TO BREAK DOWN GLUCOSE FOR ENERGY. LACTIC ACID ACCUMULATES IN THE MUSCLE AND SPILLS OVER INTO THE BLOODSTREAM.

TOTALLY NORMAL. AND TOTALLY A-OK 

WHAT ABOUT PAIN IN THE MUSCLES THE NEXT DAY?

AGAIN… TOTALLY A-OK WHEN YOU START A NEW ACTIVITY OR ADD MORE INTENSITY TO YOUR WORKOUT.

THIS IS NOT LACTIC ACID, THIS PAIN OR DISCOMFORT IS ACTUALLY CAUSED BY TINY MICR0-TEARS YOU DID TO THE MUSCLE TISSUE WITH YOUR WORKOUT.

TO RECOVER > REST > PROPER AMOUNT OF PROTEIN

REST & THE AMINO ACIDS FOUND IN PROTEIN SOURCES WILL REPAIR THE MUSCLE TISSUE SO IT’S DENSER AND STRONGER THAN BEFORE.

BUT… IF YOU ARE SORE ALL THE TIME, OR FOR DAYS… NOT A-OK.

THIS MEANS YOU HAVE BEEN CHALLENGED TOO MUCH AND YOUR MUSCLES AND ENERGY STORES ARE NOT BEING EFFECTIVELY REPLENISHED.

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FEEL SORE AFTER EVERY WORKOUT FOR A WORKOUT TO BE SUCCESSFUL.

 

 

 

BUT WHAT IF YOU HAVE JOINT PAIN? OR LOCALIZED PAIN,  SWELLING, STABBING PAIN? INABILITY TO MOVE A JOINT PROPERLY?

 

DO YOU WORKOUT?

 

LET’S BREAK IT DOWN INTO 2 GROUPS OF PEOPLE THAT I OFTEN SEE WHEN PAIN IS PRESENT.

 

THE “I’LL WORK THROUGH IT GROUP”

AND THE “I’LL REST AND THEN START UP AGAIN WHEN IT’S FEELING BETTER” GROUP.

 

BOTH DANGEROUS. BOTH ON THE WRONG PATH.

 

IF YOU WORK THROUGH PAIN HERE’S WHAT WILL HAPPEN:

 

1.     ALTER MOVEMENT PATTERN TO HELP OFFSET THE PAIN YOU ARE ENOUNTERING

2.     THIS WILL CREATE MUSCLE WEAKNESS IN THE AREA THAT YOU ARE ENCOUNTERING THE PAIN IN

3.     OTHER JOINTS & MUSCLES WILL COMPENSATE – JOINTS THAT MAY NOT BE EQUIPPED TO DEAL WITH THIS NEW MOVEMENT PATTERN AND NOW YOU HAVE 2 AREAS OF PAIN, INSTEAD OF THE ORIGNAL 1.
