"When it comes to [a lean body] and great abs after 40, a good tactic that I've found and many people don't consider, is including the elliptical trainer into your regimen," says Patrick O'Connor, a fitness expert at Gym Gear Central.

"The elliptical trainer, because of its adjustable resistance levels and the fact that the handles allow you to engage your muscles in the running motion means you get a much more effective muscle building workout when compared to just running," he says.

"[A] fantastic exercise for midlifers is swimming," Alex Parren, personal trainer and running coach for health and fitness equipment specialist Meglio, recently explained to the UK's The Telegraph.

"HIIT is an extremely effective and efficient form of exercise, elevating your heart rate quickly and burning a significant amount of calories in a short amount of time," Tom Holland, MS, CSCS, CISSN, an exercise physiologist.

In fact, according to one study published in 2016, volunteers who doubled the amount of time that they lowered the weight down on a bench press exercise compared to the time they pushed it up experienced a better workout overall.
