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

Shoulders & Abs with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Shoulders & Abs with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Shoulders & Abs with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Hit the shoulders and the abs with a pair of dumbbells and your bodyweight.

So, I filmed this workout twice. The first time I thought, “yeah, that was alright”, and then put the camera away and continued on with my day.

But, the “it was alright” inner comment to myself was bothering the sh*t out of me all day. I don’t want to (knowingly) put out content/videos/workouts that are “meh” at best.

So, I deleted the workout on the camera, re-worked the program and filmed it again the next day.

And… now I am happy to share this with you.

Have fun and I hope you like it!

a pair of light & moderate dumbbells & a can of food (something really light in case you need it for our final series)

Dumbbell Tabata Home Workout for Women Over 40

This is the perfect social distancing workout for home.

Using only 1 pair of dumbbells (or a couple of cans of food) we work every muscle in the body.
