If you’re over 50 and feeling out of shape, then today’s very special workout is for you.
Whether you haven’t exercised for a while and you want something to ease you back in,
or maybe you’ve been doing something, but you feel it’s not enough.
While you love your walks, or you participate regularly in zumba class, you’re still feeling out of shape, and like you need to step it up.
There are certain moves that when you feel out of shape, seem too daunting to do.
For example, many workouts ask you to lie down and perform one exercise and then immediately stand up to do the next. You’re then asked to go back down to the ground for another floor exercise.
When you’re feeling out of shape, this can feel hard. You’ve barely made it to the ground when they’ve finished the floor workout and pop back up.
It may feel it’s hard to maneuver your body quickly, easily and pain free.
Especially if one of the reasons you feel out of shape is because your body’s already hurting, or you’re carrying extra weight.
Also, high impact exercises, such as jumping, running and some leg exercises are harder on your joints.
At first, when you’re easing yourself back into them, these movements may feel like torture.
So, instead, let’s do all this slowly and let’s allow your muscles to adapt to exercise in an enjoyable way.
We’ve got to find a workout plan that brings you joy, not one that makes you feel like exercise is a punishment.
Once you do this, I really do believe it’s only a matter of time before you begin to feel as fit as a fiddle and with the strength and the stamina you had in your thirties.
(And after 13 years of coaching women after 50, I can honestly tell you that my clients begin to feel stronger and to feel more energized in as little as 4 weeks)
For This Workout:
You’ll need weights that begin to feel heavy by 12 repetitions. If you’re not sure what size of to use, take this simple exercise test to know for sure.
We’re going to begin standing, but when it’s time to lie down, you’re staying down, I promise.
Do the workout one time, and then as it gets easier and you’re feeling strong and energized, add on another set and another set until you’ve achieved three full sets.
So, are you ready!? Let’s get started!
