How to train to impact body composition after 40s:
Include HIIT on your training – High Intensity Interval training – 3 times a week (20 min) – a HIIT session increase the insulin sensitivity, after a HIIT session is the best time to eat your high carb food, as the cells are now “open” to receive and use the glucose.
The strong stimulus decreases the visceral and subcutaneous fat.
· Do Strength training- To stimulate lean mass and decrease visceral and total body fat ( 2 to 3 times a week)
· Do Plyometrics- Include jumping– Skipping, squat jumps, box jumps, etc. – To improve muscle powder and the transportation of glucose into the cell. (* if no injuries and no osteoporosis)
( 2 to 3 times a week )
You can include all those components in one session or alternate during the week.
You dont need to spend more than 1 hour exercising. I usually get done in 45 minutes.
There is also stress levels and sleep that plays a big role in a woman's 40 + body.
