The holidays are one of the hardest times of the year to stay healthy. Between the parties and the travel, maintaining your regular fitness plans is at least challenging and at most actually impossible. That’s exactly why I made these plans. This series will go where you go, all you need is yourself and some floorspace and you have a great workout guaranteed. It’s only twenty minutes so if you’re busy with family, friends, shopping, and cheer, that’s fine! Just squeeze this in first thing in the morning, before bed, whenever. Have time for a igger workout? Great! Double the plan, combine the plans, go for a run then do a plan- really just use this in the way that serves you best! Plus with 5 workouts to choose from ranging from targeted major body segments to a little bit of everything, no matter what you’re looking to work, this plan will be there for you.
A little about the plans… All these are based on HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training). This means that it mixes short bursts of high intensity exercises with longer medium intensity exercises with minimal recovery time. This gets your heart rate going and maximizes your time, but the short overall duration makes it sustainable and safe. All of these plans alternate between medium intensity more cardio geared exercises and strength building, muscle working exercises. As with any workout, the more you give it the more you get out of it, and with just 20 minutes give it all you’ve got!
One last note: with any exercise regime it’s extra important to make sure you’re eating (fueling) right, staying hydrated, sleeping, just overall treating your hardworking body how it deserves to be treated: well.
