Some women are under the impression that they’ll bulk up if they strength-train. This isn’t the case. In actuality, strength-training helps boost metabolism and maintain lean muscle mass as we age.

This core-based workout from celebrity trainer Jillian Michaels uses body weight and forces the synergy of multiple muscle groups. It improves balance, agility, flexibility, and power to maintain a healthy physique, fend off disease, and fight off the effects of aging.

Do 3 sets 4 times a week.
