With all of the holiday gatherings, traveling and extra to-dos right around the corner, time to workout can be a little more scarce than usual. One of the things to remember is to focus on the quality of your training, not the length. That’s why I created this holiday HIIT workout for you. It’s short, sweet and super effective. Plus, you can do it anywhere!
During this busy time of year, make your workout a time to destress and take a moment for yourself by choosing the activities you enjoy the most. One of my favorite holiday workout memories was a spin class here in Tucson–we were visiting from Valdosta at the time–and the instructor played remixes of holiday music for the class. It.was.amazeballs.
The holidays are the perfect time to get a little more creative with your workout routine to avoid burnout. One of my favorite things to do is find an at-home workout with minimal equipment to do while pastries bake, or at a hotel while we’re on vacation.
Holiday HIIT Workout You Can Do Anywhere
I put this together as a 5-minute cardio quickie you can do ANYWHERE with just your body weight!
Here’s a text version for my friends who are at work today.
Holiday HIIT Workout Tips
-Modify as you need and always talk to a doc before making any fitness changes.
-This workout is based on the best research-based HIIT methods. Feel free to alter/modify as you need to!
-During the 30 seconds ON rounds: push yourself!!
-Feel free to repeat up to 4 times (for 5 total rounds), but I’d say the magic number is 3-4.
-For even more excitement, add these HIIT blasts in between rounds of a strength workout.
