Charm City Kettlebells presents “The Ultimate Holiday Survival Guide”
We enter the beginning of our traditional holiday season tomorrow. It really amazes me that kids will be sitting in Santa's lap come Friday but Christmas will be here before we know it.
Most folks overindulge beginning NOW and since it's hard to always get to the gym at this time of year I wanted to make sure you have some body weight exercises in your arsenal so you can do effective workouts at home during this really busy time of year. Not only will you survive, you will thrive during the holidays.
I recommend you do the following circuit 4 times for a total investment of 20 minutes. You may choose to do it once if that is all the time and desire you have. It's really up to you.
You will be do max hold or max reps for 50 seconds and resting 10 seconds.
Exercise 1- Double Hip Extensions
Exercise 2- Push ups
Exercise 3- Chair Step ups (watch your head)
Exercise 4 - Pull ups (cheat if you must by jumping up and lowering yourself slowly) Use your imagination and not excuses. Find a sturdy tree limb if necessary.
Exercise 5- Planks
If you do this when you can't get to your normal workout you won't lose any of your hard earned gains.
