Inner & Outer Thigh Workout

Inner & Outer Thigh Workout

Inner & Outer Thigh Workout for Women Over 40

⁣I feel you are going to LOVE this workout. My inner thighs were sore for days after filming this workout – which means you may feel the “love” for days too!

And that is a GOOD thing, little grasshopper!

You see the inner thigh muscles (adductors), and the outer hip muscles (gluteus medius) tend to be weak, which can lead to havoc to our knees, our low back and our hips.

I have lost track of how many people I’ve trained in the last 25 years whose physiotherapist told them that they need to strengthen their inner & outer thighs.

These are important muscle groups, and in this workout we hit them hard.

There are also some activities that will really benefit from this workout too. For instance, if you run, bike, hike, walk, play soccer or hockey this workout is right in your lane.

And, for the rest of you… give it a go and let me know if you find any muscles complaining πŸ™‚ Cause if you do then that means we need to focus on those.

OK? OK!

Glute Band Tabata Workout

Glute Band Tabata Workout

Glute Band Tabata Workout for Women Over 40

I am not going to lie. This workout is hard and you aren’t going to like me very much when we get to exercise #3.

It’s tough, it burns, and it kinda sucks.

BUT…. I was very proud of myself after the 8 rounds, and now I am very proud of you too πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

You see, for this Tabata workout, we do each exercise for 8 rounds before we move onto the next exercise. Typically we circuit through our Tabata moves – but not for today’s awesome little glute cardio workout.

You might be thinking, “PJ, why are you being so mean to me? I have never done anything to you??!!!”. And that’s a great question, and I agree you’ve done nothing to me. You are super-duper amazing.

However…. you come to my workouts to see results, and in order to see results I need to keep changing the training principles, the exercises and the tempo of movement so you keep kicking a** with your progress.

So, little grasshopper, this workout is with the best intentions. Even if it does suck πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‡

TOOLS NEEDED

glute band (however you can do this without one)

THE WORKOUT

1. Banded ankle jumping jacks
2. High knees
3. Plank jacks
4. 180-degree squat jump

8 x 20sec for each exercise

5. Banded bridge with 3-sec pause
3 x 30sec

6. Standing hip extension
2 x 30sec

Full Body Strength Workout Using the BOSU

Full Body Strength Workout Using the BOSU

Full Body Strength Workout Using the BOSU for Women Over 40

This workout is very simple in its programming. I took four compound, multi-joint exercises that train as many muscles as possible, and I lead you through those moves for three sets.

We do not dick around in this workout πŸ˜‚ We are in, we lift and then we’re out.

This is the perfect strength training workout to do when you are short on time.

And, if you do not have a BOSU ball I show how you can do each move without one.

So, no worries babycakes I always got your back 😘But, the BOSU does add an element of fun that the ol’ ground just does not provide.

TOOLS NEEDED

BOSU (optional though), and a pair of light & heavy dumbbells

THE WORKOUT

1. Bulgarian lunge
2. Other leg
3. Chest press
4. Reverse flys
5. Alternating ab crossovers

3 x 40sec
