Q&A Mid-Life Fitness Video Programme
Updated: Oct 20, 2019
My videos are based on INTERVAL AND RESISTANCE TRAINING.
From around the age of 35 to 40, a gradual loss of bone density begins along with a reduction to range of movement, ultimately leading to possible degenerative changes.
In order to minimise this from happening it is important that resistance and interval training is incorporated into your routine.
My videos consequently build strong muscles, bones and a healthy heart in later life resulting in the battle against chronic conditions.
However, if you are at all unsure if these videos are suitable for you, please seek advice from your General Practitioner beforehand.
HOW DO THE CIRCUITS WORK?
As we age, physical activity performance diminishes. This does not affect only the musculoskeletal and cardiovascular system but also the nervous system. This often results in the detriment of speed and the ability to process complex movements quickly.
Taking this into consideration, I do not believe the circuits are as effective unless done properly and therefore I have removed the time barrier from the equation.
This will allow the individual to complete the workout at their own working intensity allowing the individual to focus on technique and avoiding injury.
Ensure all repetitions and sets are completed but bear in mind the Overload Principle. In order to improve you need to continually work harder and outside of your comfort zone to enable the body to reap the benefits.
I do not mind how long it takes you to complete as long as the intensity is there and the workout is completed.
Below you will find Instructions as to how to maximise your workouts with me:-
