One of the best additions to your WEIGHT LOSS routine for women over 50 is to include a WEIGHTS workout in your weekly exercise plan!
Here are the FAST FACTS: ALL levels | ALL standing, NO cardio | DUMBBELLS | BURN 75 – 100 calories | MODERATE day demonstrated | INCLUDES warm up + cool down
How does that work when we don’t burn very many calories? Oh, Killer B, I’m gonna tell you *all* about it while we get STRONG today!
Exercise is good for so many other reasons than calorie burning! This strength workout is helping you:
💪 Change your muscle shape and tone
🦴 Build bone density
🤸♀️ Improve your balance
🧜♀️ Increase your core strength
🧠 Build your brain-body connection and proprioception
This translates in “real life” to skills like fall prevention and being able to carry the groceries in from the car, as well as getting up easily from sitting, playing with your grandkids, and having less risk of breaking bones.
Check out the list of exercises below, then follow along with me in real time with the full length video.
