10 min LEGS, GLUTES, THIGHS WORKOUT for definition and strength

A quick 10 min all standing legs, glutes and thighs workout to create definition and strength in the lower body. You'll be given different options in the video to cater to beginners, and for those who have more experience and want to build on what you have already developed. You can use a chair for support if needed, or pick up weights to make the exercises more challenging. If you feel you weren't challenged enough after the 10 minutes, try a 2nd or 3rd set, or choose heavier weights. If you're used to working out with 'Improved Health', this is considered an intermediate level workout. If you enjoyed the workout, please hit the like button (thumbs up) and write a comment!

10 min Standing UPPER BODY & ARMS WORKOUT with Dumbbells

A quick 10 min all standing upper body and arms workout will get your muscles fired up to build strength and help to tighten up and tone the back, chest, shoulder, biceps and triceps. We'll be doing extra sets of triceps exercises to focus more on the bat wings since this where a lot of us women tend to carry extra fat and need the extra work. Grab a set of dumbbells that challenge you, and if you want to get more out of the workout, have a heavier set available for back and biceps. If you feel you weren't challenged enough after the 10 minutes, try a 2nd or 3rd set, or choose heavier weights. I needed to re-record the video 4x due to various reasons, and let's just say my upper body and arms were definitely feeling it the next two days!

CHANGE YOUR FUTURE BY BUILDING STRENGTH | Day 1 Upper Body Strength Training for Women

CHANGE YOUR FUTURE BY BUILDING STRENGTH | Day 1 Upper Body Strength Training for Women

Building strength can absolutely change your future! By staying strong, you'll build bone and muscle strength, create definition in the body, prevent falls, be able to get up and off the floor, and essentially will reverse the aging process in your body. Already at the age of 30, we start to lose muscle. By challenging the body with weights, we can keep our bodies stronger and feel so much better by maintaining and building body strength. Today is DAY 1 and we'll focus on upper body strength training exercises. As women, staying strong is a necessity to aging gracefully. In today's workout, we will go through 3 sets for each exercise. If you are brand new, start with 1 set, and build up over a few weeks to more sets. The last thing you want is to be so sore that you can't continue. Always start slowly. In 2-3 weeks, you can build up to doing 3 sets. If you're used to working out with 'Improved Health', this is considered an intermediate level workout.

Day 2 LOWER BODY Strength Training for Women | Stronger Legs and Glutes
36:53

Day 2 LOWER BODY Strength Training for Women | Stronger Legs and Glutes

Strength training is one of the most important things you can do to reverse the aging process, get strong and remain mobile. If you do strength training a minimum of twice a week, you'll build bone and muscle strength, create definition in the body, prevent falls and be able to get up and off the floor. Today is DAY 2 and we'll focus on lower body strength training exercises and building stronger legs and glutes. As women, staying strong is a necessity to aging gracefully. In today's workout, we will go through 3 sets for each exercise. If you are brand new, start with 1 set, and build up over a few weeks to more sets. The last thing you want is to be so sore that you can't continue. Always start slowly. In 2-3 weeks, you can build up to doing 3 sets. You can do this program for many weeks and even months. As the exercises start to become easy, start using a heavier weight. You might not be able to do 12 reps, and that's okay. Just do as many as you can (which might be 8-11 reps) until you can do more. You can also add on more sets if you wish (up to 4 or 5 even). If you're used to working out with 'Improved Health', this is considered an intermediate level workout.
