The 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge has another amazing fitness program run by super trainer Nathalia Melo. Following on from her hugely successful 28 Days Stronger videos, she is now heading up the new STRONGER ADVANCED with weights program. All can be done at home and you are going to love it!
The original 28 Day Stronger program in the Healthy Mummy App is a fantastic way to start using weights or refresh your knowledge and techniques.
If you have completed this program or have even enjoyed it so much you have completed it more than once, you may have noticed you are able to complete more repetitions. You may even notice you are getting to the end of the workout and you’re not feeling as tired as you were before and that’s because you are getting stronger and fitter!
To continue challenging your fitness and strengthening your muscles and joints the 28 Days Stronger ADVANCED has been developed.
Although the length of the workouts are very similar, rest periods in the ADVANCED program are shorter so you will fatigue those muscles quicker and work them harder.
Choosing different workouts is a great way to keep your physical body guessing as well as keeping things new and fresh for your mind so you continue to enjoy the workout instead of becoming bored and unmotivated.
Using dumbbells/barbells or resistance bands during your workout can help build lean muscle faster, improve balance and coordination and target muscles more effectively. Exercising with equipment can raise your heart rate quicker, therefore burning calories faster.
Try a bicep curl without a weight, feel your bicep as you bring an object towards your shoulder. You could absolutely still work that muscle group without a weight, but now try doing the same with something a little heavier. Feel the difference?
Strength training is very beneficial, especially for women and Mums. Having a strong core, back and shoulders helps to support our own bodies while lifting, particularly our babies and children. Strength training has also been linked to osteoporosis prevention with lifting weights showing to improve bone strength and density.
As a mum of 2 and former prestigious Olympia competition winner, Nathalia knows everything there is to know about fitness and health for mums. She has graced the covers of Cosmopolitan, HERS and Fitness RX. As a Pre- and Post-Natal Certified Trainer and mother of two, Nathalia knows how to adapt her workouts during every stage of a woman’s life.
Nathalia says, “As a mother of two and someone who is incredibly devoted to this lifestyle not only for our bodies, but also for our minds, I have made it my personal mission to empower and help women to live a fitter and healthier lifestyle in ALL stages of their life!”
