You’ve probably heard the expression “strong as an ox”🐂, and although I don’t think we’ll be taking on any bovines today, I DO know that this routine will leave you feeling EMPOWERED and RESILIENT🤛. We’re redefining healthy aging!
This quote from the AARP website really opened my eyes👀 to the importance of workouts like today’s:
“Most muscle loss comes from not using your muscles enough as you age, rather than aging itself. Using your muscles regularly will help them stay strong and firm, regardless of age, an important reason for older adults to strength train.”
And I’ve got you covered today! We’re using MODERATE dumbbells in a doable routine that consists of three mini circuits. We’re getting stronger from top to bottom🔃 (even though we’re actually we’re starting in the middle)!
If you’re ready to jump right in🦘 (with no jumping!), I’m ready. Let’s go!
