20-Minute Strength workout!
Yes! When days are busy, time is short, consistency and major muscle group stimulation is a girl's best friend. Don't skip… improvise. This 20-minute strength workout for menopause women over 50 is just what hormone balancing ordered.
I choose to limit the exercises to focus on major muscles for the biggest metabolism boost.
I don't mess around with small muscles (they're working in the secondary role) because keep in mind…. focus on small muscles without a boost in your metabolism is not going to reveal any muscle tone.
You'll be onto the rotation very fast.
a lower body – squat or lunge or a ball bridge or ham curl would do
a back exercise – a row or pullover
a chest exercise – a chest press (preferred) or fly (single joint is less effective)
Do each for approximately a minute. Choose a weight that allows that but you're reaching fatigue on near the end.
Stay focused on good form and technique. Quality over quantity.
Here we go… what you need:
a pair of dumbbells and you may want a couple sets in case to adapt as needed
a spot to lay on the floor or a bench (if you struggle to get up and down)
So here's what I'd love…. lmk:
did you do it?
are you saving it?
did it work for you?
anything you needed to modify?
