Working with weights is essential for women of “a certain age” because it improves your
👍 Bone Health
And it revs up your METABOLISM! We don’t burn a lot of calories while we’re doing the workout, but strength work like this can keep your body burning at an elevated rate for up to 48 hours afterward. Plus, increasing the muscle tissue in your body will have you burning more calories all day, every day!
What’s not to love about that?
Before you answer that, though, there’s more!
Today’s workout strengthens your whole body WITHOUT any squatting or lunging, making it good for you and good for your knees. There are no transitions to the ground, and it includes both a warm up and a cool down.
