I’ve got you, girlfriend.
If you want to lose weight over 50, cardio isn’t the answer anymore!
Our hormones are changing, and the cold, hard truth is that we’re losing muscle tone. That’s part of the reason we’re gaining fat – the more muscle you have, the more calories you’re burning every minute of every day. Less muscle tone = more fat from the same amount of calories you’ve always eaten.
Yikes! So, what’s a menopausal girl to do?
Right here at home, with whatever dumbbells you have.

We’re building MUSCLE (which, by the way, is a slow process that needs regular practice, so be sure to come back to this workout at least once or twice a week!) to help our bodies burn fat. I’ve got a couple of complex exercises each for your UPPER BODY, LOWER BODY and ABS to make sure we get a full body burn.
And, we’re having some fun, too – I mean, have you met me? This is a no-repeat, no jumping, all standing, TOTAL BODY workout with me, your best (and most talkative!) fitness friend.
We’re doing approximately ten reps of each exercise. More or less.
