Today, I bring you yet another gem that targets the trouble-zones and problem-areas; Body-weight Lower-Body Toning, from the creator of Get Lean for Women, Belinda Benn ( <<=*currently running her Seasonal Special Offer*)
On the surface it might appear this is for “younger” women – but in reality it’s also great for middle-age and beyond – actually it’s IDEAL for middle-age and beyond (Remember Bel is ’50’ now), because there are no uncomfortable machines or heavy, strenuous weights involved…
The key is to “adjust” this downward if you’re a beginner – or if you have certain limitations.. For example:
1 – You can start with just the mat/floor exercise and make that your one move to master before adding the other moves.
2 – You can use a lower bench/step to make it easier for you to do – and then build up to a higher step height if necessary. Remember – most of your muscle stimulation comes from controlling the pace/tempo of your movements – and NOT from the level of intensity you exert. (BIG difference that you won’t hear about anywhere else.)
3 – Just like I instruct in my various programs/videos; you can modify/shorten the range of motion on any move to make it more “do-able” for you. And as you progress you can increase your range of motion to be in line with your new physical ability (that is aging in reverse right there!! 🙂
This is a short Body-weight, Lower-Body Toning session (legs, buns, hips, thighs, etc..) you can literally do anywhere (home, office, travel, etc..)
All you need is:
1 – bench, step box, or staircase
2 – floor mat or thick towel
3 – exercise ball (55 or 65 cm)
4 – small towel or pillow
NOTE: Be sure to get your doctor’s clearance for exercise if you’ve been sedentary or if you’re unsure about your readiness for physical activity or structured exercise.
