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 😂

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 😇

But, you can let me know.
