Now that the holiday season is upon us, workout schedules can get thrown off a bit. Between visiting family and preparing for the big holiday celebrations ahead, hittin’ the gym during the holidays is tough. There are still ways to burn some calories even if the gym is not on the day’s agenda. A quick & easy workout is perfect for holiday time and can be done without equipment and long warm ups & cool downs.
Who knew that burning calories could be this easy? This 10-minute work out targets the butt, abs, and thigh areas. While waiting for the turkey to finish or watching the holiday games, a rep routine of Lunge Jumps, Side Plank Rotations, Front Plank taps, Lateral Lunges, Squat Jumps and Kickouts can take away some of that holiday plate guilt. No equipment is needed, no warm up is required, and the workout finishes with a 60-second Squat Hold.
This short and intense workout can be done a couple of times a day, ALL THE WAY THROUGH, with minimal rest between exercises. They can be done in the comfort of home and allow for a little bit of ‘me-time’ during one of the busiest times of the year. Check out the routine below and thanks to Ben Greenfield, there are links to the correct form for each exercise included. Check back for a different 10 minute workout next week!
