Metabolism Booster Workout with Dumbbells

Metabolism Booster Workout with Dumbbells

Metabolism Booster Workout with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

A metabolism booster workout for women over 40… because when you’re a woman over 40 you need all the metabolism boosters that you can get!

And one of the best ways is to build some muscle to boost your metabolism, and this total-body workout with dumbbells will do just that!

George also blesses us with his presence… and by sleeping through the whole workout ๐Ÿ˜‚

You, however, will not have that luxury.

The workout includes circuit-style strength work, to increase your muscle tone so we can work on improving your metabolism, with little rest so we get a good calorie burn while we’re at it too.

I also play around with the tempo (speed of the exercise) to change up the intensity for us, we will also do a lot of unilateral training and balance work so we can hit the core, and I added a fun little dumbbell ab routine about 75% of the way in.

Although I was trying to get this workout under 45 minutes, I believe that it’s those extra 9 minutes that make this one so effective ๐Ÿ˜‡

But, you can let me know.

TRX Strap Adjustments and Setup

Learn how to adjust the TRX Suspension Trainer like a pro, as well as what my preferred home setup is for the TRX. I review the 3 common lengths you will need to adjust your straps for, for any TRX exercise – plus a bonus one to really ramp up your pull-ups.

I also demo how to quickly adjust your TRX, so you don’t waste time during your workout lengthening and shortening your straps, and my trick to getting my feet into the TRX (quickly) for supine and prone exercises.

This little workout is going to surprise you.

It snuck up on me, and the next day my legs and shoulders were sore.

I hope you like this one ๐Ÿ˜˜

Quick Leg Workout No Jumping for Women Over 40

This quick leg workout for women over 40 has no jumping and focusses on strengthening the muscles that we need to hit when we’re over 40.

This includes our quads, hammies, inner & outer thighs, and your glutes.

I also wanted to give you a great leg workout, in the shortest amount of time.

In order to do this, I programmed all compound movements (moving more than one joint).

With a compound exercise, you will fire up more muscles as both the main movers and as the stabilizers, giving you the best bang for your workout in a short amount of time.
