Health is one of our most precious assets, and one of the areas where many of us vow to make lifestyle changes and improvements in the New Year. Unfortunately, few of us succeed in making those necessary changes until our health truly starts deteriorating.
Most of us want to make our health a priority but with our busy schedules, it can be a challenge to squeeze in a good workout. However, how much of your leisure time do you spend staring at a screen, mindlessly flipping through channels or scrolling through social media posts?
No more excuses! This year, opt for quick and fun workouts that you can complete anywhere when you have a few spare moments! These workouts will burn off extra calories, strengthen your muscles and cardiovascular system, and help you manage stress!
Trim-Your-Tree Tabata Workout
This fast-paced workout can be done in about 25 minutes. Complete each circuit, rest for about a minute, then move on to the next. Tip: download a free Tabata timer app to guide you through the circuits.
Deck The Halls Workout
Grab a deck of playing cards, place it face down in your workout space and turn on some upbeat music! Flip up a card and perform the exercise assigned to that suit for as many repetitions as the card number. Flip up the next card for your next exercise. There is no rest in this workout, but you are allowed to ‘sit out’ one card from each suit. If you have time, try to get through the whole deck. Otherwise, set a timer to get the most out of your workout.
Warm-up: 2 minutes of jumping jacks.
Cool-down: 2 minutes of jump rope or jumping jacks.
