Butt & Thigh Cardio Workout

Butt & Thigh Cardio Workout

Butt & Thigh Cardio Workout for Women Over 40

For this workout, we are hitting all my favourite areas to train: the quads, hamstrings, hips & glutes, with one of my favourite training protocols – HIIT (high-intensity interval training).

I’ve got low and high impact options for ya, and you don’t need any tools either!

So, this workout is perfect if you’re on vacation, or if you just don’t feel like hauling out your dumbbells, or if you just want to get your runners on and GO!

I recommend you stay until the very end too. I have a special little ladder finisher for ya, with some great stretches after.

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
