Fitness Secrets for Women Over 40

GET RID OF YOUR TREADMILL!

Yes, you read it right.  If all you do on your treadmill (or any cardio machine) is long, slow, monotonous sessions, stop it! Sell yoursell your treadmill treadmill and make room in your house and life for some really effective fat burning exercise.  And you don’t need to spend a lot of money!

Your body is all you need.

The key is that you must replace your long easy cardio sessions with short high intensity interval training sessions. This can be accomplished with a few simple body weight exercises such as the squat jump, jumping jack or stationary sprint.

The following is a perfect example of how you can add a set of fat burning exercise to your day, sacrificing very little time and space.

This is the SQUAT JUMP. (As you can see, you can modify this movement to your fitness level by reducing the height of the jump and the depth of the squat.) This is how you start your program.  It’s simple!

  • Start with 20 seconds of squat jumps, follow with a 10 second recovery time.
  • Try to repeat this cycle for 5 minutes (or 10 total sets).
  • Now you can rest for up to one minute.
