Hello my friends!
Did you know that as we age that we start losing bone density? You can reduce your risk of osteoporosis by adding in 2-3 strength training workouts each week.
Grab some dumbbells (either at the gym or at home) and start building up your bone density and preventing further bone loss. Each of these exercises should be done with 10-12 reps for 3 rounds. I like to superset my exercises…so you will do exercise #1 followed immediately by exercise #2 then rest for about 30 seconds then repeat that superset 2 more times.
If you can easily go through all 10-12 reps and you don’t feel fatigued then your dumbbells are too light and I recommend picking up a heavier set of weights. If you don’t have any you can order some and have them shipped directly to your door from ProSource (my go-to source for fitness & yoga equipment).
Here is the workout:
Exercise #1: Deadlifts
Exercise #2: Bulgarian Split Squats
Exercise #1: Chest Press
Exercise #2: Bent Over Rows
Exercise #1: Shoulder Press
Exercise #2: Goblet Squat
Exercise #1: Bicep Curls
Exercise #2: Lateral Raises
Let me know if you try the workout and feel free to comment below if you have questions about strength training.
Stay Healthy & Strong my Friends!
