25 Minute Workout with Weights – Total Body

25 Minute Workout with Weights – Total Body

25 Minute Workout with Weights – Total Body for Women Over 40

Full total body workout in 25 minutes, using weights for women over 40. This is the most effective strength training workout for those times when you are short on time!

And FYI: while you may think that 20 different exercises, done for a minute each, will get you results – it won’t. Sorry!

Single set training is fine for once in a while, but for results (and results in a short amount of time), the research has proven over the years that multiple set training is the clear winner.

PS – let me know what you think about the new additions to the workout? Such as the fancy new timer and the exercise names 😉. I’m almost looking like a real YouTube fitness channel now.

 TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of moderate and heavy dumbbells, a chair and if you own a booty band – grab that too

THE WORKOUT

1. Squat
2. Chest press
3 x 40sec

3. Bulgarian lunge (or 1 leg squat)
4. Other leg
5. Renegade row (or standing alt rows)
3 x 40sec

6. Hip thrusts off chair
7. Push press
3 x 40sec

Quick Cardio Workout with the BOSU Ball

Quick Cardio Workout with the BOSU Ball

Quick Cardio Workout with the BOSU Ball for Women Over 40

A quick cardio workout with the BOSU ball for women over 40. Burn some calories and have some fun using one of my favourite pieces of equipment, the BOSU ball.

Hands down the BOSU ball is my go-to for cardio.

Why you might be wondering?

Because it’s so much fun!!

I’m not watching the clock like I do when I’m on my treadmill, and I’m not wondering “when the hell does this end???”. I am simply moving, sweating, smiling and generally enjoying myself the whole time.

And that’s what exercise should be all about!

If our workouts are fun and give us a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when we are done, we will stick with them.

This is called intrinsic motivation. It’s something that we do because it’s personally rewarding to us.

Unfortunately, when it comes to fitness I see more people depend on the cousin of intrinsic motivation, extrinsic motivation.

And this type of motivation is hard to keep the fire lit within.

Extrinsic motivation involves doing something because you want to earn a reward (like weight loss) or avoid a punishment (like going on medication). These are hard ways to motivate ourselves on a regular, day-to-day basis.

Moral of the story: find a fitness plan that you enjoy and you’re bound to be consistent with it. Let go of the reward and punish aspect of what motivates you to exercise, and funny enough, once you do you’ll see those rewards come ❤️

TOOLS NEEDED

BOSU, however a STEP would work with the last couple of moves done on the ground

THE WORKOUT

1. Plank tucks to jacks
2. Switch taps
3. Knee drive to lunge
4. Other leg
5. Double squat to 180-degree turn
4 x 30sec

AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)
Bulgarian lunge hops x8 a leg
Mountain climbers x8 ea knee
Ab crossovers x8
Do 1:00, march on the spot and wait for minute 2 & do again.
= 5 minutes total

30-Minute Burn Circuit with Dumbbells

30-Minute Burn Circuit with Dumbbells

30-Minute Burn Circuit with Dumbbells for Women Over 40

Burn some serious calories with this circuit workout with dumbbells for women over 40.

This little workout is going to surprise you.

It snuck up on me, and the next day my legs and shoulders were sore.

So, I call this a win 🥳

For this workout we use compound exercises, so we can work as many different muscles as possible per exercise. This ensures that you get the best BANG for your fitness session.

I also really worked on the programming so the exercises flowed well. Since we are only using one pair of dumbbells I wanted effective, functional and ALSO a great flow.

I hope you like this one 😘

PS – if you want to add another quick workout at the end of this one I have linked up in the end cards, or you can click the link for my 10-Min Dumbbell Workout Finisher.

TOOLS NEEDED

A pair of moderate dumbbells

THE WORKOUT

1. Clean & squat
2. Alternating palms away rows (or renegade rows)
3. Get ups
4. Get ups – lead with other leg
5. Narrow chest press
6. Hammer curl to press

3 x 45sec

Of course, there are TONS of other exercises you can use tubing for. It’s a great tool and one that I have been recommending to people for the last 25 years as a trainer.
