Want a total body workout and learn how to burn fat in your 40s? Try these suggestions! I get asked a lot about how to keep your metabolism humming when you are in your 40s (and 50s, 60s and beyond!!), and there are two things I suggest: keep moving whenever you can, and add some HIIT workouts to your routine.
As we age, our tendency to slow down creeps in. Instead of becoming more sedentary, use your 40s to become more active! To learn how to burn fat in your 40s, keep moving! It’s key to keeping your body fit, firm and fabulous!! To keep moving, I always suggest adding some of my Fidget-Cisers to your day. These are quick, effective movements you can do most anywhere. Think leg lifts while drinking your coffee, mini squats while watching TV, counter or desk pushups when you have a spare minute… all these really add up in the long run! And the best part is they really are effective and take hardly any time at all. I have been doing these for years, and they really work – they promote a faster metabolism, keep your energy levels up, keep your muscles toned and engaged, and help you to burn fat in your 40s!
I have a whole playlist of my tried-and-true Fidget-Cisers on my YouTube channel, so check them out and subscribe so you don’t miss any new ones! Some of my favorites include:
The other thing I suggest to help burn fat in your 40s is to add in some HIIT workouts to your fitness routine. HIIT stands for High Intensity Interval Training, and it is a GREAT way to keep your heart healthy, burn fat, boost your metabolism, and stay fit. I have been doing some form of HIIT since my 40s, and I think it has made a difference in how I look and feel. My 10-Week Whole Body Plan includes a variety of fat-burning workouts, including HIIT, for a well-rounded routine designed just for you!
