One of my biggest pet peeves is that women tend to be afraid of weights. They have in their heads that strength training is going to make them look like a muscle woman, so they shy away from resistance training.
Strength training is not just pumping iron. You can use body weight, body weight via sling training like TRX or resistance tubing, free weights or weight machines.
A simple fact of life is that as we age… and age isn’t old, age is over the age of 30… we start to lose muscle mass every single year. If you don’t use it, you lose it! Think about a decade of losing muscle in your 40s. Then another decade in your 50s.
Stay strong after 50 with this 15-minute upper-body workout that uses weights to tone your upper body.
And what happens? Not only does your metabolism start slowing down, but all of a sudden, everything from picking up the kids to walking up a flight of stairs becomes more difficult.
Women started saying to me, “I can’t do this. I have a sore back.” Guess what, you have to strengthen it. Or, “I have weak knees.” Guess what, you have to strengthen your legs.
Over and over again, strength kept coming up in conversations. That’s why it became my mission to make okay for women to understand that if you’re 40, if you’re 50, if you’re 60, if you’re 70, you need to be doing strength training exercises.
Studies show that if you start a strength training program, even if you’re 75, you can double your strength in 8 weeks.
Increase your strength to improve your health, your appearance, and your performance with this 15-minute upper-body routine. It uses weights to transform your triceps, biceps, shoulders, and core. Try it three times a week for 8 weeks and notice the progress along the way!
