Time Saving Holiday Workouts

By Medisys on November 23 2018 | Physical Health, News

The holiday season can be busy, making it more of a challenge to squeeze in a good workout (at a time most of us need it the most!).  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 to manage stress


Trim-Your-Tree Tabata Workout

This fast-paced workout can be completed in about 25 minutes and can be done anywhere – including your living room.  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


Warm-up: 2 minutes of jumping jacks.

Grab a deck of playing cards and place the deck (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’ for only one card from each suit. If you have time, try to get through the whole deck but if you have a time constraint, set a timer.
