[BONUS: shoulder/mobility drills]

Join me for an upper body workout for home, only using dumbells. Not only do we hit the upper body, but I also place focus on our shoulder mobility and stability… because these are two areas that start to tank when we are over 40.

In addition, we finish off with a fun bicep, triceps and shoulder finisher.

Back, Biceps and Abs Workout for Women Over 40

Back, Biceps and Abs Workout for Women Over 40

Back, Biceps and Abs for Women Over 40

DAY 9 – 10 DAY ARMS & ABS CHALLENGE

The best back, biceps & abs workout for women over 40. No fluff, just the right exercises to hit your back, biceps and abs.

I start the workout with a 6 exercise circuit, to not only hit the back muscles, the biceps and get the core recruited functionally, but to also get the heart rate up so we can burn a few extra calories.

After that, we move into a traditional strength workout with a really short stretch at the end (I wanted to keep this workout at 40-min).

If you time and would like to do a longer stretch I’ve attached one that would complement this workout on the end screen at the end of the workout.

Have fun!

TOOLS NEEDED

a pair of heavy, moderate & light dumbbells

THE WORKOUT

1. 1. 1 arm row
2. 2. Same arm bicep curl with lunge
3. Shuffles
4. 4. Other arm row
5. Other arm curl + lunge
6. Rotational squat swings
3 x 45sec

7. Alt reverse flys with thumbs up
8. Hammer curls
9. Russian twists
2 x 45sec

10. Pullover with leg drop
11. Prone Ws
12. Low back extensions
13. Plank pulls
2 x 45sec

20-Min Arm Workout for Women Over 40

20-Min Arm Workout for Women Over 40

20-Min Arm Workout for Women Over 40

Blast your triceps, biceps and shoulders with this quick arm workout for women over 40.

This 20-minute Arm Workout is gonna torch your triceps – as well as the rest of your arm and your shoulders.

And how do I know this?

Cause mine were done by the end of the workout. Done like dinner 🍝

For this arm workout, we will focus on compound moves that use your arm muscles (plus more) for the first four moves, follow that with four arm isolation exercises and then finish our arms completely with a ladder drill.

I find this type of training, compound to isolation, really effective!

PS – πŸ†• Need a little one-on-one, let’s-focus-on-you?

Book a video session with me – 30-min & 60-min available

Back, Biceps & Abs with Dumbbells

Back, Biceps & Abs with Dumbbells

30-Minute Back, Biceps & Abs with Dumbbells

This workout is a great compliment to the Chest & Triceps workout I dropped a couple of weeks ago.

It not only works the opposing muscles to this workout, by splitting front and back muscle groups into two different workouts you are able to train on back-to-back days. This is the perfect solution if you’re trying to fit 3-4 strength workouts in a week (which is what I recommend women over the age 0f 40 do).

Have fun & don’t forget to check in after you’re done on comments section of the workout on YouTube πŸ™‚
