exercises that you can do at home three times a week to tighten strengthen

please keep watching hi I’m Schellea this is fabulous 50s a lifestyle channel that
explores fashion beauty and lifestyle for women over 50 and if you’re a woman

there’s a new video and they’ll all relate to you today we’re going to burn
some fat and tone and strengthen our ABS if you haven’t worked out for like 20
years it doesn’t matter because you’re going to start today take it very very
slow and gentle and make sure that you do something every single day to keep
your body strong and healthy so when you think I couldn’t be bothered exercising
just see yourself in ten years time and decide what kind of health you want to
have and if you follow this ab workout I can guarantee you will start noticing a
difference my son Nathan and I are going to show you seven exercises that are
really going to reduce your belly fat and tighten the muscles underneath the
bellies to get toned abs it takes a lot of work doesn’t it Nathan it’s not
something that you can just do a quick 10-minute workout once a week and you’ll
start getting abs it’s way more than that
getting a 6-pack isn’t the issue everybody’s gonna have a six-pack for
sure it’s a part of who you are you need it to breathe and digest food and
regulate your posture and things like that but the belly fat on top of it you
know makes it very difficult to see okay so by doing ab exercises with
strengthening and toning that but we’ve got to burn the fat as well when you’ve
done this workout afterwards when you feel the muscles burn that that feeling
of the burning is burning body fat so that’s that feeling is your muscles
recovering and while they’re recovering they’re burning body fat hours and hours
now after their exercise okay so if you saw
after this exercise it’s a good thing right very good sign
okay so the aim is to do this really well and to do it properly so that you
can get some burn and be sore in the morning
and aside from sort of building the muscle what you want to also do with
these exercises is get to the point where you’re short of breath and
sweating that’s your body letting you know you’re in the zone where your
burning body fat and I guarantee you this ab workout will make you sweat for
sure I was doing a lot of ab exercises and they weren’t making a difference
because I was doing the wrong kinds of exercise so we’ve broken down just to
these seven to give you a really good chance of getting some results fairly
quickly just be mindful that it’s your body and you know what’s going to work
for you if it’s dads hurting stop and for each exercise we do 30 seconds of
the exercise 30 seconds break and then 30 seconds again of the exercise so
that’s if you’re starting 30 seconds on 30 seconds off 30 seconds on stop move
to the next exercise when you’ve built yourself up to you can handle it you do
4 sets with a 30 second break in between you can use your stop clock on your
phone just to set 30 seconds or you can get a nap and I’ll leave a link to what
sort of app you can get for that ok let’s get started okay the first
exercise is a plank and we’ll do it two ways one for if you’re beginning and the
second way will be if you’re a bit more advanced okay so this is the easier
version of the plank so you want to keep yourself very straight and the elbows
bent so if you have your elbows bent it’s gonna be much easier on your upper
back and shoulders that way you can just focus on your lower back and core so if
you’re doing it too low it’s gonna put stress on your lower back if you’re
doing it too high you just there’s no benefit there for anybody so this second
way of doing the plank is much harder because you’ve got your arms straight
here so it’s putting some more stress on your upper back and shoulders but if
you’ve mastered the first version of like and the second version show us a
yoga stuffed shell this tiny little difference of coming forward doesn’t
look like much at all but it makes the exercise so much harder so if you want
to try and really go the extra mile go for this one second exercise is a
mountain climber and this is really great so why are you doing this you’ve
got to keep your core tight okay so this is one of my favorite exercises because
it gets both through your obliques and your abs at the same time but I was
very disappointed when I found out that it didn’t actually help you climb
mountains at all okay the third exercise is one of my favorites because once I
started doing this I started seeing some definition down the side here in my
obliques so I’ll show you how to do that so with this exercise you want to take
the side of your hips and bring it down as close as you can to the floor and
it’s really uncomfortable and it doesn’t feel great but it’s super effective so
when I’m finished that exercise I do a counter pose for the thirty seconds like
this fourth exercise is leg raises so the the simpler way to do this is to be
back on the ground hands under your bum to balance you so that will keep
everything steady and then you bring your legs up 90 degrees and then really
slow down so when they’re coming down you want to feel your abs because you’ll
definitely feel very very strong when they’re coming down just go slowly at this point and that’s
where all the work is done the fifth exercise we’re going to do is toe taps
these are probably the easiest to do out of everything so you put your back at
this angle and your buns slightly off the ground and you tap your toes and you
hold your core in very tight while you’re doing it
thirty Seconds on and thirty Seconds off x to the sixth exercise is called a
Russian twist and it’s a really great one for your obliques again so it gives
you that shape so so with with this exercise you want to keep your feet
together on the floor yeah and then you want to twist your body so your shoulder
and you need a parallel on the opposite sides and you can feel this so much if
you want to increase your level here you can lift your feet up and you could use
some hand weights or a medicine ball Nathan thinks that you don’t know what I
mean so I’m gonna use his shoe but you do this with your legs above the floor
oh you can feel that okay the seventh exercise is scissors
and I’ve left this to the end because it’s hard it’s hard so if you get to the
end and you’ve got nothing left just do a couple of these and work your way up
to it so what you want to do is have your hands flat to balance yourself lift
your legs up and then you want to keep the toes pointed more pointed and
legs straight so it doesn’t really matter how well you’re doing it or what
your range of motion is but you need to keep your toes pointing your legs
straight because that’ll keep all your abs doing this thing okay so that was
our seven exercises I’m really puffed out that was a hard workout but set
realistic goals for yourself so don’t push yourself too hard particularly if
you haven’t exercised for maybe twenty years take it very slow your abs will
start toning but you’ve got to put the work here it’s not something that’s just
going to happen overnight and like Nathan said there’s no ten-minute
miracle is there even though you see it everywhere advertised yeah if you can do
this 20 minutes a day you’ll get results overtime 100% it’s a really good workout
yeah but anyone selling five minutes a week
this miracle product or this seven-minute workout here it’s all
marketing and and none of that stuff works yeah and as we’re getting older we
just have to work a little bit harder to get the same results as we got when we
were Nathan’s age that’s for sure but it’s worth it because whatever effort
we’re going to put in now we’re going to start seeing results and then in a
year’s time you’ll look back and you say I’m so glad I got started when I did
please give a thumbs up if this was useful to you and please share with any
of your girlfriends who might be interested in an ab workout thank you so
much for watching and have a beautiful week all right now ladies and gentlemen we’ve found a Sydney Fitness mum in her
natural environment here today I’m going to try get close to her just
just watch me back there Daveo I don’t know how these things are reacting the
wall really ever seen you captivity isn’t this a beautiful

  1. โค๏ธ Once you learn how to do the ab 7 exercises, you can take a photo of all 7 exercises (on screen at 2:47) and continue doing this routine without having to re watch the video.

  2. Way off subject here but have to say that your son would look so much better if he trimmed his facial hair up so it was more of a thin line around his jaw up to his side burns and beard. Otherwise another great video. ๐Ÿค— you might enjoy whatโ€™s called The Power Of 10 workout. You can find a few YouTube videos of Adam Z explaining the program. Cheers

  3. Thanks Schellea and Nathan… the stomach is the one place that seems to take forever to tone! I'm going to give it a try. Loved the last part… so funny!

  4. I have an idea! You start an bed And breakfast, your son gives workouts And then i come to Australiรซ, and stay at your b&b, Haha. Sounds great to me!!

  5. I wish I could do those exercises….I have problems, and nerve damage on my shoulder blades. And left lower back, and hip

  6. These are great, thank you, I'm going to incorporate them with the arm workouts you have. You should consider doing a workout DVD, I would definitely buy it. I've been looking for an exercise routine that is just like what you are demonstrating.ย  Thanks!!

  7. Thanks for this video fabulous50. I've had really bad lower back and the plank is killing my back. So I modified it by doing the plank on the wall. Also the oblique exercise where you plank and lower your hips alternately on either side doesn't work with me. I use the gym machine for my obliques. It's a great video otherwise. I also love your bat-wing arms video.๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿฝ

  8. I do exercise every day, but I have added a few of yours to my routine and I actually see a difference.I am a mum of 12 and feel fab!! thankyou for posting these do able moves!! xo

  9. Iโ€™m really struggling with the exercise where you do a plank and twist side to side! I canโ€™t touch the floor as you do and it feels so un-natural!!!

  10. Thanks for sharing your inspiring videos, just found you. Sure did subscribed to your channel. โค
    Blessings to you and your Son.

  11. This is what Iโ€™ve been looking for! Thanks to you both for putting this together. Have you always worked out? Youโ€™re in amazing shape!

  12. So hard !๐Ÿ˜ฉI just found out I can do the last 3 but still so hard๐Ÿ˜ฉ got to start somewhere. I have cervical n back surgery so Iโ€™ll do them light. Thanks for the video ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿงš๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ

  13. Hello there , I am a mom of 2 kids. A 5 year old and a 9 month old. Is it still possible to get a smaller waist. My waist was 38 inches It is now 34 inches I believe I have hit an plateau. Do you have any advice.

  14. How did I miss this one!!!??? This was WONDERFUL and you are in wicked shape, girl!!! Looking good!!! Nathan is a hoot!!! So nice to see mom/son workouts!!! โ™ก โ™ก โ™ก โ™ก TEN THUMBS UP โ™กโ™ก โ™ก โ™ก and I learnt some new tricks! Like that Russian Twist!!! Thank you for sharing!!! XOX Lydia

  15. A word of warning. These exercises are great and I've done them all. But I had to stop. I developed pelvic floor prolapse. Many women don't know about this so beware and do your research. I'm on the mend and will resume these with modifications.

  16. I started doing this and the toned arms for a few weeks and besides seeing some changes, I really like the exercises because even though some of them can get hard, they are comfortable enough for women over 50. thank you

  17. Hi! I started your arm exercise last week, and now starting the abs. how many times a week do you do them for best results?

  18. Hi..beauriful..sister๐ŸŒน

  19. Kyle Cooper, previous marine Gunnery Sergeant as well as professional trainer is happy to introduce the world-wide introduction of his groundbreaking weight loss plan generally known as the Fat Decimator. The program is based on a chance meeting with a Korean medical student while serving in Afghanistan. Click this link to get more information https://goo.gl/WVeskJ

  20. I'm fairly fit and thought these would be easy, could only manage two sets of each! I plank fairly frequently so tried your yoga pose, which really does add another dimension to it. Great video and loved the exercises, thank you both!

  21. Unfortunately ab work wont spot reduce belly fat. The overall body fat reduction is key to a smaller tummy. Also, where you gain fat first is always the last place to leave. .

  22. WOW! I just got revitalized watching you! I used to make some of those exercises, so I know how great is the filling after a well done workout; it's like your body is telling you a big "thanks." Thanks a bunch to you and your son for an awesome exercise routine, it will be part of my daily one; very thankful!

  23. I accidentally found your broccoli sprouts video, and really enjoyed it. I'm going to order some seeds. Thank you! Then I enjoyed your eye shadow video. I recently started wearing eye shadow again. I probably haven't really worn it in more than twenty years. I'm 51 now and need extra effort. I then watched your abdominal video. I'm heavier than I want to be. Ever since I weaned my ninth baby I've had to be watching my weight. She's seven now. So, I've basically never exercised! Two days ago I did this workout, well, the first four on the video. Today I'm so sore! I just did the first four again. Wow. It's hard!!! I enjoy your and your son's humor. It helps! And the comment on the burning muscles are burning fat. I didn't know that. I always knew new muscle was being formed, but I prefer knowing fat is being burned! So that's very encouraging and is actually what helped me get motivated to do today's workout. Four minutes sounds so silly, but it's hard for me! Again, thank you to you and Nathan. I've never been much into social media, following people and such, but I'm following you and intend to keep doing these. And I'm looking forward to watching a few more of your videos.

  24. Yes, Yes, Yes! I did pretty decent for my first time! I am feeling great! Thank you! I appreciate as well as am humbled for all the beauty and health benefits you share!

  25. I followed a new method to lose weight, you can see it here:
    => the2weekdietnow. com <= (Google it)
    I lost 5 pounds in my first week. It is a diet made by experts in weight loss.

  26. Wow these are so hard for me! I knew my core was weak prior to trying to do these, but now I realize what a weak mess I really am! Your core must be quite strong in order for you to make these look so fluid! I hope to improve with these exercises and maybe someday make them look as easy as you do. Bravo!

  27. Didn't get past the first one, and couldn't hold it for 30 seconds lol. But I'm gonna keep trying. Could feel the burn.

  28. So funny you two! Iโ€™m gonna try this and maybe get my mom in it! Thanks ๐Ÿš & Nathan! Iโ€™m a 52 yr old female who hasnโ€™t worked out for awhile….hereโ€™s hoping I can keep up with you!

  29. New subscriber here. I havenโ€™t really worked out for sometime. I am 76 and I do the occasional 5k and want to be able to do them faster than the 44-50 minutes. My core needs work and legs strengthened. I have a problem doing the regular plank as my wrists are weak. I have to make a fist and hold myself on them. Is there a way to strengthen my wrists? Any magical instant great bodies??? ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜–โ˜น๏ธ. I want to work my middle…โ€™love handlesโ€™ (who game them that name?-I do not love them) belly fat and overhang in my jeans. I would like to be able to wear my nice tees and tanks without a slimmer underneath. I know there is no magic pill but one can wish. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  30. Definitely not your usual โ€œOver 50โ€ exercise routine! Working to get fit again after a leg fracture that is limiting my mobility. I can only do a few of these now.

  31. Im 54 years old and love your video work outs there not too hard and you present them very sensibly as when your in your 50s you know your limits and know you have to take things slowly and have realistic expectations.
    Thank you

  32. Hi, can you pls. Make a video of the entire workout, so we can follow you along. Please, pretty please. I do your other workouts and am seeing changes in my body. Thank you so much, you inspire me. โค๏ธ
    Just subscribed ๐Ÿ˜‰. Please make the video, we love to follow you!!

  33. Ok if you have any lower back issues or scar tissue from a hysterectomy like I do Please do not do those leg lifts!

  34. I only recently discovered your channel I am not 50 yet but I love your channel and I am starting today to be better prepared, when I do get to 50 which is in 4 years time.. regards in love

  35. First off thank you for your honesty about no quick fix for getting toned…but one does not have to live at the gym either. You are very much an inspiration. While you are indeed very beautiful and in fabulous shape you seem very real and give hope that even an average woman can improve her health and appearance. I am going to be having a hip replacement operation in June and as soon as I am given the ok by my doctors I will be following your routines. I may no longer be in my Fabulous Fifties but I'm kinda loving the Sassy Sixties and want to rock this decade. Thank you so much for your videos! Much love and appreciation.
    Goin' for it Granny ๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿ˜

  36. Hi ๐Ÿ‘‹ looks hard! How about for women yes get 60s with a lower back problem?๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโค๏ธโค๏ธโค๏ธ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿ˜˜๐ŸŒธ

  37. Thank you so much for this. Iโ€™m almost 50 & started doin this routine. The suggestion for taking the pic helped a lot. I watched this whole video several times & have written notes on the pic with Apple Pencil which helped immenselyโ—๏ธ

  38. Shellea, how wonderful your channel is for any age! I want to grow older in the form of you and I do find these exercises great help in dealing with after-pregnancy belly!
