3 Simple Exercises To Burn Fat All Over
"Quadriceps and glutes are your largest muscles. Squats will build muscle and burn calories by training vast muscle groups. Over-40s need squats for knee health."
This workout tones quadriceps and glutes (the hip and thigh muscles on your bottom). Standing upright with feet hip-width apart, squat. Brace your core and lean back.
Your thighs should be parallel to the ground. Drive your feet into the ground to straighten your legs and return to the start position.
Planks are one of the best, safest, and most effective core training exercises. "These exercises also activate muscles. Over-40s aiming to shed weight and tone their midsection do this ab exercise."
Planks are harder if push-ups are hard. Now, place your hands just beyond shoulder width apart on the floor. Bring your legs back like a push-up. Brace your core, glutes, and quadriceps and force your toes into the ground
Head posture must be neutral to the spine. You should gaze down. Remember to breathe and hold this position. Ab and arm muscles are worked in this workout.
McDowell advises, "With 5lb to 10lb dumbbells, set them on the ground, get into plank posture holding the weights with your hands." If you don't have dumbbells, try a milk jug!
Keep your shoulders down, arms shoulder-width apart, and heels back for this workout. Tighten your glutes, quads, and core while maintaining a flat back.
Like a tricep kickback, lift and lower the dumbbell. Breathe and concentrate on your form. Switch arms and repeat.
