Is it just us, or do the last couple months of the year disappear in the blink of an eye? Thanksgiving is already old news and feels like months ago, while Christmas just happened earlier this week. We know it is a busy time this time of year due to all of the holiday celebrating packed into one week. If you’ve been putting off your workout in lieu of a thousand other things on your to-do list, it is time to stop that nonsense now and do something that is great for your overall health. We are here to give you a Holiday HITT workout you can do in 20 minutes flat. You can literally do this workout in grandma’s living room, in your hotel room, at your cousin’s apartment, outside if the weather permits or even in the airport, but we may not recommend the last one.
Your 25 Minute HIIT Holliday Workout
Perform each exercise for 45 seconds with a 15-second rest.
Plank In and Outs
Squat Jump with 90 Degree Rotation
Plank Up Downs
All six exercises count as one round. Your goal is to complete four rounds with a minute of rest in between each round.
When executing each exercise for 45 seconds, you should be performing the exercises as fast as you can. Challenge yourself to try and get more repetitions in each round. After the first round, you should get a better feel for your ability to perform each exercise so that you can push yourself in the next round just a bit more. Remember there is always that 15 seconds to regroup yourself, catch your breath and get ready for the next exercise. It isn’t a lot of time, but you should really hold true to that 15 seconds and not rest for any second longer. Of course, if you have to then add in a few more seconds of rest or turn this workout into 35 seconds of high-intensity work with 25 seconds of rest. You know what you are capable better than we do, but don’t be afraid to push yourself.
