What to Avoid
One common mistake many perimenopause and menopausal women make, in a bid to get their waistline back, is to do exercises like the Plank and Sit-ups, and these actually can end up broadening our waistline. So instead we need to be doing standing cardio ab exercises, as this increases the calorie burn, helping to reduce excess belly fat. And by doing a special combination of MCM and MDM (stands for multi compound moves and multi directional moves) you draw in the waist muscles and increase the amount of body fat your body burns.
The other form of exercise is cardio, as this helps to keep your heart strong and is also great for energy and reducing stress. This can be my Free Indoor Walking Workouts or simply going for a run, bike ride, swim, or anything that is going to help get your heart rate up.
And this is where exercise is truly a girl’s best friend going through the menopause, as it will help control your weight, shape your waist, keep your heart strong, reduce anxiety, keep your joints supple, and most importantly make you realise that this is simply a new chapter in your life where you can still look and feel your best.
