AngieFitnessTV: Fit Over 40 Cardio Lower Body Sculpt

Cardio Lower Body Sculpt is another workout in AngieFitnessTV‘s Fit Over 40 program. It is the Day 14 workout. This was a very basic but very effective workout and Angie combines all sorts of fitness modalities to work your lower body and give you a great low impact cardio workout. Plus, there are lots of ways to increase the intensity of this workout. The warm up is done on the floor without a step. Once the warm up is complete, the scene changes and Angie is marching in place behind the step. You will perform perform 2 circuits. The first circuit is all cardio done on both the step and the floor. The second circuit is lower body strength exercises using a booty band and the step. These two circuits take approximately 13 minutes. Once you finish, you repeat both circuits a second time. For the cardio you are alternating basic step cardio moves with basic cardio boxing moves. Angie’s step is at 6 inches and she is using a medium strength cloth band. I wore my 6 pound weighted vest, a one pound weighted glove on my right hand (still can’t use any weight on my right), my step was at 8 inches and I used my medium strength Enriq Booty Band. I got an excellent workout and my legs were burning during the lower body circuit. I used one of Angie’s 15 Minutes to Fit workouts as a finisher to round out my hour this morning: Small Band Lower Body Tone, which did a great job finishing off my lower body. Together these made for a great lower body day!

There is a link below the YouTube workout that leads to a webpage about Angie’s Fit Over 40 thirty day plan. The plan itself costs $19.99 but the Fit Over 40 Workouts themselves are free on YouTube.
