Do you hate going to the gym and sweating but know you need something that will remove the fat on your stomach that stares you in the face everyday while you get dressed?
Burning fat sounds great and easy, until you get started. Right?
Today I am going to share with you some of my all time favorite workouts for staying in shape for women over 40 and passing 50. If you are looking to burn more fat, the following workouts are a great way to begin. I’m Milan of Sonaturelle Wellness. In this post I am so excited to share with you my fat burning tips for dramatic weight loss.
These are the basic steps for burning fat when you are a newcomer to weight training. Overtime you may find that free weights work best for you or that circuit training works best. The key is to start off safe and start off with the right form.
Your body can get use to doing the same thing and need a change to see the results you are looking for.
One way that most women mix things up is by enrolling in a spinning class. Spinning classes take stationary bikes to the next level. The classes run from 30 minutes to 75 minutes. The idea behind these classes is to offer a high intensity constant moving workout. It works your quads, core, abs, arms, calves, and hamstrings.
It can be a full body workout that burns a lot of calories which leads to fat burning as well. This is a high intensity method and is usually made for more intermediate and advanced workouts.
Spinning can work off as much as 900 calories per session. Or you can talk your time, enjoy outdoors and ride your bike to still burn calories but half that.
Indoor Rock Climbing
Okay, you may not think of rock climbing as a fat burning exercise, but you can bump up your fat burning by simply adding this to your routine. As you climb, you are working your entire body. You are lifting your body-weight, moving your arms and legs, and you are working your core. This burns calories.
The higher you climb, the more intense the fat burning becomes. If you are new to indoor rock climbing, you can start with a beginner wall and then move up. This type of exercise can keep you busy and engaged for several years before you run out of what you can do indoors and then can move it outdoors if you like.
If you are not close to where you can rock climb and your knees are ready try doing this, get on the floor in a plank position and running in place.
There is a fine line in the yoga community with half the people stating that Pilates is not real yoga while the other half stating that it is yoga just in a different from.
Pilates stands out for women 50 and over because it uses different instruments during the workout. For example, you may use a Pilate’s machine that offers resistance or you may use a Pilate’s ball.
The accessories are there to help stabilize you and help you get your workout to the next level. If you want something that incorporates traditional yoga but adds a twist on the process, then this may be ideal for you.
You can add one or all three of these to routine. You will see an increase in fat burning and you can keep up the rotation of your normal workout routine alongside this new routine.
These are just three of the considerations to keep in mind however, before you begin any fitness routine check with your doctor if you have health related issues.
There is nothing worse than working out and either injuring yourself or realizing that you are using the wrong form and you aren’t burning as much body fat. The way to fix this is to find a professional and just make sure you are using the right form. A professional trainer will show you how to use the right form.
Using the right form means you are getting the most out of the fitness regimen, using the muscles under the fat, and burning the fat away properly and safely.
If you’re anything like me, the clients that I work with are not the type that love spending their days in a gym. If you like this post please leave a comment and SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel.
