The Best Leg Workout for Women Over 40

The Best Leg Workout for Women Over 40

The Best Leg Workout for Women Over 40

Strengthen what are the common problem areas of the lower body for women over 40 with this all-levels strength workout.

DAY 3 – FIT IN 15 CHALLENGE

While this Best Leg Workout for Women Over 40 is totally self-proclaimed, it is programmed to hit all those areas that need to be hit once we have 40 and beyond.

We work balance and the core muscles through the special use of certain movements in this workout, while also hitting the hamstrings, glutes and glute med muscles – common offenders when it comes to weak muscles of the legs.

If you stick around until the very end of the video I explain my step-by-step process of why I programmed these moves, and how they will help the over 40 body.

1 heavy dumbbell + a chair

1. Bulgarian lunge (or sub given)
2. Other leg
3 x 30sec

3. 1 leg deadlift

Arm Workout for Women Over 40

An arm workout to end all arm workouts! Join me for a 30-minute arm workout, specifically for women over 40.

Okay, I ain’t gonna lie. This workout kicked my butt… or more specifically my biceps and triceps.

I decided to mix things up and this whole workout is done ladder style. If you’re not sure what that is, perfect. Ignorance is bliss when it comes to this.

And… if you do know what that means, then you know what the treat of a workout that you are about to begin.

Have fun, be sure to leave a comment and good luck picking up a toothbrush tomorrow 😂

Strength Workout to Prevent Osteoporosis

Strength Workout to Prevent Osteoporosis

 

30-Minute Strength Workout to Prevent Osteoporosis for Women Over 40

Osteoporosis, which literally means porous bone, is a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced. As bones become more porous and fragile, the risk of fracture is greatly increased.

And, this loss of bone occurs silently and progressively. Often there are no symptoms until the first fracture occurs.

The leading cause of osteoporosis is a lack of certain hormones, particularly estrogen in women and androgen in men.

Women, especially those older than 60 years of age, are frequently diagnosed with the disease.

However, those of us in menopause (or through it) also have lower estrogen levels – making our risk factors go up for osteoporosis.

The best way to build our bone? Strength training exercises and higher impact moves.

So… I married the two for this workout, giving you the perfect workout to prevent osteoporosis, while also toning our muscles.

 

TOOLS NEEDED

A pair of light & moderate dumbbells

THE WORKOUT 

1. Alternating lunges with bicep curls
2. Side hops over the dumbbell (low & high impact options shown)
3 x 30sec

3. Squat & shoulder press
4. Jumping jacks (low & high impact options shown)
3 x 30sec

5. Kneeling straight arm press backs
6. Sumo jump out with dumbbell pick-ups (low & high impact options shown)
3 x 30sec

7. Wide rows
8. Skaters (low & high impact options shown)
3 x 30sec
