We’re picking up heavy things and putting them back down again (aka, STRENGTH TRAINING with heavy dumbbells), and here’s why it’s the perfect exercise routine for women over 50:
- Muscle tissue is “metabolically active,” meaning that it uses a lot of energy (calories) to simply exist.
- As we age, we lose muscle tone.
- The loss of muscle tone causes our bodies to store fat, even if we’re eating the same and exercising the same as we’ve always done, because our bodies aren’t burning the same number of calories they used to.
- The best and most effective way to gain muscle tone (or at least slow down the loss of it) is to workout with WEIGHTS.
We’re exercising our bodies and our brains today with very complex barefoot exercises that will challenge your coordination and balance while building strong, beautiful muscles.
There’s no cardio and no floor work, but the warm up and cool down are included!
