50-Minute Low Impact Intense Total Body Workout

50-Minute Low Impact Intense Total Body Workout

Low Impact Intense Workout

I was sitting at an intersection the other day when I glanced at the top of my head in my rearview mirror (I don’t know, to fix my bangs or something probably), when I noticed a grey hair.

WTF? On closer inspection I noticed some more.

Now, I do have a grey hair. Yup. One. It’s by my forehead and I pluck it.

I pluck it in front of all my other hairs too. So they can see what happens if they too decide to be rebellious and go grey.

It’s like a warning, behave or you’re gone baby.

But, they ain’t behaving anymore. In fact, there is a bloody mutiny going on.

And this just happened too. Last month (when I was 47) everything was cool. Now, at 48, everything is not so cool anymore.

What’s girl to do?

Head to the hairdresser I guess. Cause if I keep plucking I might be bald 🙂

TOOLS

A pair of heavy dumbbells

One light dumbbell

Upper Body + Abs Ladder Workout

Upper Body + Abs Ladder Workout

Upper Body + Abs Ladder Workout

Okay, I am gonna be honest with ya. My abs were sore for days after this workout.

It was awesome!

I love it when my abs are sore, don’t you? (Hate it when my tush and calves are sore though.)

Now, the one thing I know that made those abs of mine work double time was the use of a stability ball in the workout.

However, if you do not have a ball – no worries! I show how each exercise can done using the ground.

So, what are you waiting for? Let’s go!

All Levels Strength & Abs Workout

All Levels Strength & Abs Workout

All Levels Strength & Abs

This workout is perfect for all levels of fitness and only requires one pair of moderate sized weights – and pretty much everyone has a pair of dumbbells lying around.

TIP: If you don’t have any dumbbells, head to Varage on Facebook, or Craig’s List to pick some up cheap. Or, don’t bother with the fuss of hunting a pair down second-hand and head to your local fitness store. Expect to pay $1.19 – $1.49 a pound.

In my All-Levels Strength & Abs Workout I have set it up so if you don’t have time for my special ab drill you can cut the workout short and skip the abs.

But… if you are cutting out early cause you just don’t feel like doing the abs, know that for every ab crunch not performed an angel loses its wings.

So, don’t be responsible for angel cruelty.

Hehehe.

10 Things I Miss The Most From My Youth

1. My mind.

2. My eyesight.

3. Sleep.

4. School and all it’s holidays, professional days and summer vacation.

5. My allowance.

6. Santa Claus.

7. Inexpensive gasoline.

8. The illusion of invincibility.

9. Gravity (it’s mean to those of us over 45).

10. It takes twice as long now to look half as good.

10 Things I Love About Being Over 45

1. Love. In particular with loving husband.

2. Fearlessness, as opposed to my younger self’s recklessness.

3. I don’t sweat the small stuff.

4. I don’t know it all, as opposed to my younger self who did.

5. My idea of a night out is Netflix and cocktails.

6. No need for feminine hygiene products.

7. I can live without sex, but not without my reading glasses.

8. ?

30-Minute Full Body Dumbbell Workout

30-Minute Full Body Dumbbell Workout

30-Minute Full Body Dumbbell Workout

This full body workout uses dumbbells and bodyweight to train all the muscles in your body. Great for beginners, as well as those looking for a quick weight loss workout.

I’m sure when loving husband agreed with the minister on our wedding day “to till death do us part” he never thought it would also include being dragged onto set each week and be made to film a workout.

Actually, neither did I.

But, here we are 22 years later.

He’s still above ground, we’re still married, and he’s doing his best to make himself NOT get invited back for future filmings (case in point minute 19:45 on the video. Perhaps the most ridiculous looking crossover lunges ever!).

It ain’t gonna work though.

I will keep dragging him on set. It not only gets him exercising a bit more, it also provides some comedic relief for you (while you sweat away with us), and it teaches me patience.

 The Deets

Tools needed: 1 heavy dumbbell + a pair of moderate

Where to do: home or gym

Best suited for: beginner to advanced

Sore knees?: Instead of the stationary lunges do side leg lifts, instead of pulse squats and crossover lunges hold a wall squat

30-Minute Full Body Dumbbell Workout

Wondering how to pick the right sized dumbbells? First, if you are new to exercise start light and get your form first.

Second, once you have your form you want to choose a weight that you can feel by end of the set. In my experience most women can lift heavier than they think they can.

Challenge yourself in order to see change.

My Recommendations

Beginners: 

For big body moves, such as squats, lunges, chest presses and rows: 8-10lb

For smaller muscle moves, such as tricep extensions, bicep curls, shoulder presses: 5-8lb

For isolated shoulder work, such as side, rear or front lateral raises: 3-5lb

Intermediate:

For big body moves, such as squats, lunges, chest presses and rows: 12-15lb

For smaller muscle moves, such as tricep extensions, bicep curls, shoulder presses: 8-10lb

For isolated shoulder work, such as side, rear or front lateral raises: 5-8lb

Advanced:

For big body moves, such as squats, lunges, chest presses and rows: 20-30lb

For smaller muscle moves, such as tricep extensions, bicep curls, shoulder presses: 12-15lb

For isolated shoulder work, such as side, rear or front lateral raises: 10-12lb
