4. Protect yourself from arthritis – push DUMBBELLS.
Chronic joint pain can attack adults of all ages, so it’s never too soon to start preventing it and one of the best ways to do it is strength training. You don’t have to spend hours lifting big weights. Doing deadlifts or overhead presses with 1-3 kg in each hand 2-3 times a week can do miracles for your body.
5. Let your glutes rest – do a GLUTE BRIDGE.
Sitting all day in an office can deactivate our glutes which slows down the rate at which our body burns calories – the metabolism. The hip extension in the glute bridge exercise makes the butt work and it can also open up any tightness from long days of sitting. Leave your arms along your sides, squeeze your butt muscles to lift your hips up, and squeeze them once more at the top, then slowly lower your hips back down.
6. Don’t let sarcopenia take your muscles away – do Y-TO-T RAISES.
Sarcopenia is a degenerative loss of skeletal muscle associated with aging. So if you’d like to prevent bad posture and back and shoulder aches, it is very important to strengthen the muscles of your back and shoulders.
7. Protect your heart – train on an ELLIPTICAL MACHINE.
Low-impact cardio is a great way for women over 40 to maintain a healthy heart. But if you really want your heart health to benefit, you need to exercise at 80% of your maximum heart rate for at least 30 minutes, 3 to 4 times a week. If 10 is as hard as you can do on a scale of one to 10, then you should work at the level of 8.
