CARDIO AND BALANCE: HOW THEY WORK TOGETHER FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Losing weight here in Menopauseland is different than it was in our 30s and 40s! Gone are the days when we could simply go harder with our cardio workouts and see the benefits on the scale, and now is the time to think about working smarter. Your menopausal body needs more recovery time to avoid drifting into the “chronic stress” mode that comes from over-exercising. By adding balance exercises, we’re reducing the intensity of the workout (which reduces your stress response!) as well as reducing your risk of falls. Win-win! With a 23-minute cardio and balance workout, you’re on your way to a healthy weight and healthy aging.

BALANCE: WHY IT’S IMPORTANT
Living a healthy life has lots of moving parts, and physical balance is an especially important one – particularly for seniors (and even us “not so seniors”). Many activities that we do every day rely on balance, and lacking this skill can result in serious falls, injuries, and decreased mobility. Routines like today’s cardio and balance workout can give us more muscle tone, more strength, and have us moving with more stability and confidence for many years to come.
BALANCE EXERCISES FOR SENIORS: IT’S NEVER TOO EARLY TO START
Even if you don’t qualify for a senior discount yet, balance exercises are a crucial part of any workout routine. Even women in their 20s, 30s and 40s can reap numerous benefits from regular balance practice that will keep them agile into their post-menopausal years. Practicing balance improves ankle strength, core strength and the mind-body connection – which are essential at any age!
