Have you ever felt intimidated by the array of equipment in the gym?
Gyms are not always client friendly and going into the gym not really knowing how and what to use the equipment for, its easy to stick to the equipment you know such as the treadmill, Lat pull down and workouts are a bit adhoc.
Resistance training is necessary for the 40+ client, it has many benefits including maintaining done density and muscle mass which naturally decrease as we mature. In simple terms decrease in muscle mass = decrease in metabolism = weight gain. The right resistance training strengthens the posterior chain decreasing issues with lower back pain.
Lifting weights will not make you bulky. Women simply don't have the genetics to achieve this, but we do have the genetics to achieve tone and definition which not only looks great but means we can carry on burning calories even when we have left the gym and keeps our metabolism ticking over.
Try a simple routine at home with 2 x 5KG dumbbells.
10 x lunges,
10 x shoulder press,
10x bent over rows.
Repeat 3 sets of each.
No dumbbells available, use water bottles or tin cans as an alternative.
If you'd like the opportunity to experience the "right way to train for you" and feel confident about your food and fitness.
