Upper Body Shred + Cardio for Women Over 40

Get the heart rate up, while working the upper body muscles and core with this ladder workout for women over 40.

DAY 2 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE

I think you are going to LOVE this workout. It’s intense, it will get results, and the time flies by.

For this upper body workout, I decided to switch things up and do a ladder workout, counting reps instead of using timed intervals.

I explain at the beginning of the workout what to do if your reps don’t match mine, as well as how to modify the burpees… or get rid of them altogether.

In total, we will be performing 75 reps of each exercise, while touching a ton of calories.

You ready? Awesome! Let’s begin.

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of light, moderate & heavy and a chair for beginners

THE WORKOUT

1. Burpees
2. 2 arm row
3. Plank jax (or alt given)
4. Chest press
5. See saw plank (or alt given)
6. V sit DB presses

25 reps
20 reps
15 reps
10 reps
5 reps⁣
