We all know that the Holidays are some of the worst times, to try and lose some weight! But today, I am going to tell you about three simple workouts, which will help you to stay fit during these upcoming holidays and the rest of the year as well.  So keep on reading and learn how you can do a little exercise and still enjoy the Holidays this season.

While some of these workouts may not seem as a good option for a beginner, they are certainly not hard to learn and almost anyone can practice them.

  1. High Intensity Workout, great for starting – You should walk for at least two minutes, to start warming up.  After this, start speeding up, but don’t get more than a jog.  You should really start by following the steps that were just mentioned, as warming up is a very important part of this workout.  Now you should start running a little faster, for around five minutes, which will help you to complete your warm up and ready for the real exercise.   You will now repeat this eight times: run a 30 second sprint and recover with 90 seconds of normal jogging and breathing.  This should take you around 16 minutes to complete.  You should now walk for another two minutes and this will end this workout.  All of this, should take you around 24 minutes to complete.
  2. A Little harder – You should also start by warming up with a two minute walk. Then start running normally, for around five minutes.  Now you will need to repeat the next steps six times: Run a one minute sprint and then recover with a two minute jog.  After that, you should walk for another two minutes and calm down.  This workout, should take you around 25 minutes, which is perfect for the Holiday season or even when you have to go to work.
  3. The hardest of the three – Again, you should start warming up, by walking for at least two minutes.  Run easily, for around five minutes.  Now, you will need to repeat the next steps, five times: Run a one minute sprint, jog and recover for another minute, find a hill and run upwards for another minute, jog and recover for another two minutes.  You should then walk and calm down for another two minutes.

So go ahead and give these workouts a try during these up coming Holidays and I am sure that you will enjoy them a whole lot more.  Not only will you end the year great, but you will also start to look better during the Holiday season and become fit for next year.

Five Easy Ways To Make Your Legs Stronger

  1. Star Raise Right – With your left knee on the floor, place your left hand on the floor and extend your right leg. Then try pulling your belly button in towards your spine to engage your core as you lift your right (extended) leg up and lower it back to the floor. Try to move only your right leg while keeping your trunk and upper body stable. Repeat a few times.
  2. Star Kick Right – With your left knee bent on the floor, place your left hand on the floor and extend your right leg. Lift your right (extended) leg and hold it there. From there, bend the right leg, driving the knee towards your chest, and extend it back out to the side. Repeat this several times.
  3. Star Raise Left – This is exactly the same as star raise right, but now you are going to do it with your other leg.
  4. Star Kick Left – This is exactly the same as star kick right, but now you are going to use your other leg to complete this set.
  5. Lying Glute Exercise – Lying on your back, bend your knees. With your feet hip distance apart and your heels slightly off the ground, engage your core and lift your hips off the floor. From there, take your legs out to the sides and squeeze them back together. Try repeating this process a few times and see how it goes.
