'I’m a personal trainer – these 3 exercises are guaranteed to blast fat in over 50s'

We are all well aware of the importance of exercise for our health and wellbeing. Not only can it help you maintain a healthy weight, but it is known to lessen your risk of dangerous conditions such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease.

However, as we get older this can be more difficult to do so, as we have less energy and may have suffered some injury over the years.

But one fitness guru has shown that age doesn’t have to matter. Personal trainer Niki Wibrow, who specialises in workouts for over 40s, shared three key exercises you can do at home.

In a TikTok video she demonstrated her workout for “targeting those annoying areas”.

More specifically, she indicated that these exercises can help blast arm fat – or bingo wings.

All three exercises are carried out using a resistance band. And each exercise should be repealed 30 times for the best results.

Pull backs

Start with your arms out in front with the band around the wrists.

Put the arms out straight in front and bring them in, bending at the elbows.

Extend to pull

Stand with your knees bent in a half squat, holding one end of the resistance band in each hand.

Push one hand out in front while pulling back the other hand as if mimicking the movement of archery.

Step backs

Get into a plank position with your knees on the floor.

With the band around the wrists, step the hands back and forward one at a time.

Niki advised: “Remember as well that exercise needs also vary depending on your individual situation like health conditions, muscle or bone issues.”

The NHS recommends that we exercise for at least 150 minutes a week.

This can include gentle exercise like walking. However, the health body warns that for any type of activity to benefit your health, “you need to be moving quick enough to raise your heart rate, breathe faster and feel warmer”.

Examples of this can include brisk walking, cycling, dancing, hiking and even pushing a lawnmower.

The NHS adds: “People who exercise regularly have a lower risk of developing many long-term (chronic) conditions, such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, stroke, and some cancers.

“Research shows that physical activity can also boost self-esteem, mood, sleep quality and energy, as well as reducing your risk of stress, clinical depression, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease.”
