Easy Weight Loss Exercises For Women Above 40

Women after the age of 40 do not give any real importance to fitness and are made to believe that just walking and being active will be enough for them to lose weight and stay fit. It is true that walking and being active helps in losing weight and being fit however, if one could be fit by only walking and being fit, this world would have never had so many people complaining about extra weight. We have planned a weekly routine of these weight loss exercises for you and the best would be to keep Day 1 as Monday so that you get Wednesday and Sunday as your rest days. These are not the toughest workout’s and are certainly achievable for women over 40 years of age.

So that will be the plan for your weight loss exercises for at least 6 weeks, remember to rest for 2 minutes between each sets. Also, not everyone maybe able to last or attempt 2 sets right from week 1, in such a case, try doing 1 set minimum for 2 weeks and then move on to 2 sets for the next 4 weeks and make the most of these weight loss exercises.

Also, remember to eat healthy and follow a weight loss diet plan for best results.
