What Every 50 Year Old Woman Needs In Their Exercise Plan For Real Results

A well-rounded exercise plan is crucial for any 50-year-old woman! It’s your one-way ticket to looking and feeling strong, toned, healthy, and younger for longer.

In fact, it can slow your natural aging process, keep common diseases at bay, and boost your immune system! But, what do you need to include in your workout to make sure you achieve these life-changing results?

Stretching

First and foremost, stretching is a must! Stretching before exercise ensures you won’t pull anything by reducing muscle tension, helping your body relax, and giving you a greater range of motion. Stretching after your workout will help remove all the lactic acid you’ve built up, soothing that dreaded next-day soreness!

It primes your muscles and makes it easier to reach the ravishing results you want! Make sure to stretch well, but don’t hurt yourself. Hold each stretch for 15-30 seconds without bouncing, straining, or holding your breath.

Strength Training

No, not bodybuilding – strength training. It’s about combatting the natural loss of muscle mass and keeping your body strong by training with resistance!

Find a set of weights that tire out your muscles in two to three sets with 10 to 12 repetitions each. Then, make sure to use these weights in exercises that work your major muscle groups, like your biceps, glutes, abs, and so on.

Cardio

For most 50-year-old women, cardio is a cardi-no! But, without cardio in your exercise plan, you’re risking your heart health. Cardiovascular exercises lower blood pressure and cholesterol. They’ll also help you lose weight and see results faster by increasing your stamina and endurance during exercise!

From dancing to hiking, running, walking upstairs, and more, there are many ways you can get your weekly cardio in. Just make sure it feels challenging, but you can still hold a short convo.

Don’t Overdo It!

It’s important to remember that results take time! Pushing yourself past breaking point is not the answer. You’ll likely injure yourself and have to take a break.

Train each major muscle group at least twice a week with rest days in between. You can do two days of total body workouts, or you can mix it up between your upper and lower body for three days. But, make sure to include cardio exercises on most days!

As a 50-year-old woman, you deserve to look and feel like the gorgeous goddess you are! By including these in your exercise plan, you’ll see results in no time.

But, I know it’s easier said than done. I’ve created articles, short videos, and even a 7-day workout plan to help you reveal your true potential.

  1. Hey just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article
    seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is
    a formatting issue or something to do with internet
    browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem resolved soon. Cheers
