Many exercise recommendations are also relevant for early postmenopausal women; however, these may not meet their specific needs because the recommendations are based mainly on studies on men. We conducted a systematic review for randomised, controlled exercise trials on postmenopausal women aged 50 to 65 years on components of HRF. HRF consists of morphological fitness body composition and bone strength , musculoskeletal fitness muscle strength and endurance, flexibility , motor fitness postural control , cardiorespiratory fitness maximal aerobic power, blood pressure and metabolic fitness lipid and carbohydrate metabolism.
The feasibility of the exercise programme was assessed from drop-out, attendance and injury rates. Twenty-eight randomised controlled trials with participants were assessed. Based on these studies, early postmenopausal women could benefit from 30 minutes of daily moderate walking in one to three bouts combined with a resistance training programme twice a week.

Kick your legs straight out behind you and immediately lower your entire body down to the ground, bending at the elbows, so that your chest touches the floor. Use your arms to quickly push your body back up while hopping your legs back under your body. Explode up, jumping vertically with arms stretched overhead.
Land lightly on the balls of your feet with your knees slightly bent, and immediately repeat.
Banded Glute Bridge "As a runner, I'm always trying to do things to get my glutes activated and keep my lower back protected against injury. Loop a medium-strength resistance band around your thighs, just above your knees. Squeeze your glutes and abs and push through your heels to lift your hips a few inches off the floor until your body forms a straight line from your shoulders to your knees. Hold this position. Press your legs out and back 10 times, maintaining tension in the band as you pulse in and out.
Slowly lower your hips to return to the starting position. Side Lunges "Side lunges are my favorite exercise, period. Take a big step out to the right with your right foot and bend your right knee, pushing your hips back to lower into a side lunge. Keep your left leg straight and your chest lifted. Make sure your right knee stays over your toes and doesn't push beyond them. Push through your right foot to return to standing, and then repeat on the opposite side.
Reverse Lunge to Overhead Press With Knee Drive "This exercise is great because it gives a great bang for your buck and targets the glutes, quads, and core while you are in the split stance, the core during and knee drive, and the shoulder during the press. Hold a dumbbell in your right hand and rest it on your shoulder. Step back about 2 feet with your right foot, landing on the ball of your right foot and keeping your heel off the ground. Bend both knees to create two degree angles with your legs. In this position, your shoulders should be directly above your hips and your chest should be upright.
Your left shin should be perpendicular to the floor and your left knee should be stacked above your left ankle. Your butt and core should be engaged. Push through the heel of your left foot to stand up straight. As you do, press the weight directly overhead and drive your right knee in toward your chest. This is 1 rep. Hold for a beat, and then step back into a reverse lunge to immediately go into the next rep.
Crouching Tiger Push-up "I do these pretty much every day. Bend your elbows and lower your chest toward the floor. Keep your body low, bend your knees, shift your hips back toward your heels, and straighten your arms. Your knees should be hovering a few inches off the floor. Lift your hips toward the ceiling and straighten your legs. You should now be in Downward Facing Dog. Slowly roll your body forward back to high plank. Squat "Every time I work out I do some sort of squat. Bend your knees and push your butt back as you lower into a squat. Only squat as deeply as your mobility allows.
Exercise No 15 - Overhead Side Reach
Push through your heels to return to standing. Squeeze your glutes at the top. Offset Load Bulgarian Split Squat "The Bulgarian split squat is a terrific way to build single-leg strength and to strengthen and target your legs, glutes, and core. With your left foot on the floor a few feet in front of the bench, place the top of your right foot on the bench, shoelaces down. Hold a dumbbell in your left hand by your side. Brace your core and bend your knees to lower down into a split squat. Your left knee should ideally form a degree angle so that your thigh is parallel to the ground, and your right knee is hovering above the floor.
Quick position check: your left foot should be stepped out far enough that you can do this without letting your left knee go past your left toes—if you can't, hop your left foot out a bit farther away from the bench. Driving through your left heel, stand back up to starting position. Jumping Rope "The one exercise I always like to do when I work out is jumping rope, especially on strength days to elevate my heart rate in between circuits. Hold one handle in each hand.
