BONUS Seconds Pro App Interval Timer for 20-Minute Fit Over 40 Express Workout:
Yo! My name is BJ Gaddour. I’m the former fitness director for the Men’s Health brand and the author of Your Body Is Your Barbell. To celebrate my 40th birthday, I’ve created this top 40 fit over 40 exercises list to burn fat, build muscle & boost metabolism. I’ve broken these timeless exercises down into 4 distinct categories with 10 moves each:
Furthermore, this list is designed for home & travel use with the busy parent or professional in mind. The only required equipment are bodyweight training tools, plus dumbbells or kettlebells, bands & med balls. There are zero barbell exercises. The main focus is making lighter loads go a longer way to achieve the holy grail of fitness: LONGEVITY.
First, I’ll break down each exercise in a minute or less including its unique benefits, proper form, regressions, progressions & modifications, plus my favorite variations. Then I’ll pick my top 2 exercises from each category to form a minimalistic ELITE 8 list and use these high-priority drills to create THE 20-MINUTE FIT OVER 40 EXPRESS WORKOUT you can do anytime, anywhere.
