Cardio vs Weights After 50 (Wish I Knew this Sooner)


Cardio vs Weights After 50 (Wish I Knew this Sooner) I'm frequently asked: which is better cardio or weights and now science is very clear on best exercise for women over 40, and over 50 and 60 it becomes more true. Three common exercise myths women believe about exercise, weight loss, and gaining muscle strength and tone that are false, have no science behind them, and need to go!


Are you tired of settling for weight gain and fatigue just because youโ€™re approaching or have already passed age 50? You can still get in the best shape of your life, no matter your age!
