Exercising Against The Holiday Season

December 9, 2014


December is the month when we usually take a break from our regular workouts, enjoying the winter and all of its feasts. Regret is sure to follow, as the fat stacks on your abs, making that six pack you worked so hard for invisible again.

Along with your belly, your stamina and the rest of your muscles suffer as well. To avoid feeling bad about eating yourself to sleep during this holiday season, we are here to show you how to keep on training during the winter while having a wonderful time with your family and friends.

There Is No Excuse

Making excuses not to exercise will only get you as far as the dinner table. The first thing you need to do is to acknowledge that the holidays will affect your training routine.

You won’t stay at the top of your game, but that doesn’t mean you can’t minimize the damage.

It’s impossible to do all the exercises in your regimen, so ignore all the heavy ones and focus on the essentials.

Push-ups, sit-ups, squats, and jogging – these four exercises are crucial if you want to avoid flushing all your previous efforts down the drain.

Squeeze these critical exercises into your schedule, and your body will come out of the holiday season as if you never stopped training.

Be An Opportunist

You’ve done nothing all day, the Christmas dinner got moved an hour later – don’t back out know! Use every chance you get to do a quick and efficient exercise.

You might feel exhausted right before dinner, but after that, have a good night’s sleep on a full stomach, and get up early in the morning for a relaxing jog.
