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.

With November just a day away the holidays are definitely here. For most of us, holidays mean seeing family and friends, amazing food, relaxing, and most of all, travel. As wonderful as traveling can be, it can also be a time of stress because you have to change your routines. This year I’m hoping to make that a little easier with this Healthy for the Holidays Workout series!

16 Twenty Minute Workouts

DO anywhere 20 minute HIIT workouts! #health #fitness #workout #plans

There are some days when you are entirely motivated to workout. You feel inspired, you have energy, you’re ready to go and crush it. But for the other kinds of days, the days when you’re busy, tired, it’s raining and you just don’t feel like it, I’ve got you covered with these do anywhere twenty minute workouts. They’re just about as excuse proof as it gets! Ready? Don’t have enough time? These are just 20 minutes- before bed, first thing in the morning, even while dinner’s cooking, this is a workout you can squeeze in. Don’t have gym access? Perfect, these workouts can be done anywhere but were really designed to do at home.Don’t have weights? No worries, these are entirely equipment free! All you need for these twenty minute workouts is yourself, a timer, and some floor space. Personally, my favorite ways to use these are to pop on a great show on TV and do these while I watch! 

There are 4 different series here and each includes targeted workouts to different body areas. Scan through them, pick the one that will motivate you the most and then enjoy! If you have time, I recommend adding this on to a regular cardio schedule (ex: 20 minute run then do one of these plans). I usually suggest strength training 3-4 times per week and cardio 3-4 times per week (double up some days) and always take 1-2 rest days per week! As with any workout routine, just as important as the work you do is the fuel you give yourself. Especially working out regularly, make sure you’re feeding your body right with a balanced, nutrient rich diet plan! Most of these plans are time based meaning you do as many (correct!) reps as you can in a set amount of time. One of the most motivating things for me is keeping track of how many reps I can do and watching the numbers climb as I grow stronger!

Ready for the workouts? Here they are!

TONE IN TWENTY HIIT: these plans use a HIIT (high intensity interval training) style. This means they alternate between short bursts of HIGH intensity and longer periods of medium intensity (designed to be a “rest”). Try to keep going as much as possible to get the maximum benefits! It’s only 20 minutes, you can make it! 🙂
