The Sneaky Way to Stay Fit Over the Holiday

When it comes to fitness, the Holidays tend to throw a gigantic wrench into one’s routine.  Whether it is traveling or preparing for family gatherings or the constant urge to want to snack on all of the holiday goodies.  Be that as it may I have created a quick yet effective way to burn those unwanted calories and/or relieve some of those holiday stresses (aka family members). 

All kidding aside, this workout can be as long or as short as you would like it to be, ideally it should only take you twenty minutes to get a heart pumping caloric burn.  Now, you don’t need any fancy equipment or even a lot of space.  All of these exercises can be done with furniture (ex. a chair or table) and/or on the floor.  

Now for the workout!  Each exercise will be performed consecutively so that it is run as a mini-circuit completing each exercise with the designated number of repetitions and sets assigned to each exercise. 

Lifts: 3 sets of 10-12 reps

1. Push-Ups              
2. Squats (body weight)            
3. Core Rows (Exercise performed in push-up position alternating each arm in a rowing motion along the side of the torso.) 10-12 reps each arm              
4. Dips (use a sturdy table or chair)             

Calisthenics/ Abs: 3 sets of 20-25 reps 

- Mountain Climbers              
- Abdominal Crunch              
- Jumping Jacks              
- Bicycles

There you have it, a 20 minute workout that can be done in the privacy your home or in your bedroom if you are traveling.  This will help you maintain your metabolism and keep you on track instead of wolfing down mom’s homemade Christmas cookies and/or pie(s).  

Remember it only takes one slip to throw you way off track and we all know getting back on track is one of the hardest things to do.  Stay focused, be safe and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
