Cat Kom and Bethany are back and are encouraging all women who are preparing or are currently undergoing menopause to put those sneakers on! In this vlog, they provide their audience with some key tips on hormonal happiness during menopause.
Exercise provides many benefits including preventing weight gain, reducing the risk of cancer, and other diseases as well as strengthening your bones. Impact menopause in a positive way by following these simple steps to improve your quality of life during this tumultuous time.
1) DO CARDIO. Many women experience weight gain during menopause and are more susceptible to contracting heart conditions including cardiovascular disease. One way to ward off calories and diseases is by engaging in cardio, which can range from housework to spinning to running marathons. Spend about 150 minutes or more per week partaking in aerobic exercises in order to ensure yourself a healthier lifestyle.
2) STRENGTH TRAINING IS A MUST. In order to slow bone loss and to prevent fractures, ease into strength training exercises. Strength training, also know as resistance training exercises, include simple bodyweight workouts that exclude equipment such as dumbbells and weights. Set aside time each day for a set of squats, lunges, and sit ups to preserve lean muscle. Short cut, take a Studio SWEAT sculpt class!
