Work Smarter, Not Longer.
Today I’m giving you a quick and effective workout strategy that doesn't sacrifice too much of your precious time.
Before I get started let me introduce myself as it's been a while. You know how we start thinking about how to stay strong and healthy as we age? Well I take women in their 50s and 60s through 2 live online workout sessions a week that are tailored to their specific needs so that they can stay vibrant, fit, and healthy. My clients are stronger, fitter and more toned than they were in their 40s!
Ok, here's your workout strategy.
The key is to focus on one group of muscles each session. This approach lets you save time by only having to warm up and stretch the muscles you'll be working. So, let's break it down. If you're not feeling motivated to exercise I've got some tips for you here.
What Will I Be Doing? - Compound Exercises
These exercises engage multiple muscle groups at once, so you can make every second of your workout count. Compound exercises like squats, dead lifts, and push-ups not only help you build muscle but also burn heaps of calories during the workout.
What’s The Benefit? - Burn Calories, Reduce Belly Fat
The more muscle you have, the faster your metabolism becomes, and the more calories you burn throughout the day. Burned calories don't get stored as fat on your belly. You won't bulk up like a bodybuilder; you'll just get more toned.
How Will I Do It?
To keep things simple and super effective, here's a sample of how you can divide up muscle groups:
Remember, it's crucial to get your form right and to choose exercises that work for YOUR body. I’d be happy to take you through some workouts to see what's good for you. Book a free session.
So, there you have it – a quick and efficient workout plan that won't eat up your precious time but will definitely help you stay in shape and boost your metabolism. Happy sweating.
