Total Body Workout after 40

on 6th September 2021

September is a great month to “re-set” the body and the mind! I’ve been back in the gym this week after the children have FINALLY gone back to school and I find this routine is “an oldie but a goodie”! It took me only 22 minutes with a warm up and a cool down included so I can then get on with my day. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym or running long distances. And remember, eating less and exercising more makes you fat! Endurance exercise (exercising for more than 40 minutes) after 40 is out and High Intensity Training is in.

So, here it is – a really quick and easy exercise routine to do at home (or in the gym) to get you back on track:

Warm up the body by marching on the spot or a gentle jog.

  1. Squats with dumbells x12 repetitions
  2. Press Ups x10
  3. Alternate Lunges x16
  4. Shoulder Press with dumbells x12
  5. Plie Squats x15
  6. Bicep Curls with dumbells x12
  7. Leg Curls on the Ball x12
  8. Tricep Dips x12

REPEAT this circuit twice. Try to only have 10-20 seconds rest in between each exercise. Finish with Stretching the legs, arms and shoulders.

This circuit switches from a low body exercise to a high body exercise so forces the body to work harder, thus “firing up the furnace” and boosting your metabolism.

You CAN get results in your 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond. If you want to “re-set” but feel the mountain is just too high to climb, I can help – book a phonecall or a zoom call and we can discuss how to get you re-charged and thriving in your midlife.
