Today’s workout does double duty as we pair cardio moves and strength training for a routine that’s quick-moving and FUN! Generous intervals allow us to make sure our form is just right, and, of course, there’s no jumping or transitions to the ground.
This routine is ideal for those on a WEIGHT LOSS journey, for women of “a certain age,” or for anyone who wants to celebrate what their glorious bodies can do!

GETTING FIT OVER 50: WHAT IF IT WAS EASY?
Many of us spent hours in the gym when we were younger in an effort to get to a healthy weight and increase fitness, but now that we’re older, going too hard will actually get us the opposite of what we want! Moderation is the name of the game today, and focusing on three key elements – cardio, strength, and balance – will get us everywhere we want to go. Short, simple workouts (like today’s!) are ideal for getting fit over 50.
GETTING FIT OVER 50: THE SIGNIFICANCE OF STRENGTH
Strength training after 50 can prevent osteoporosis and stimulate muscle and bone growth. Workouts using dumbbells are a great way to get physically stronger and improve your mental and emotional health. Incorporating strength into your weekly routine – like we do in the FIVE POUNDS DOWN series – is essential for getting (and staying) fit over 50.
