The Five-Minute Holiday Workout Routine [CC's ShapeU]
Cramming your workout into the little time you have this week? Spare five minutes with this simple routine, perfect for the holidays!
These next few weeks are some of the busiest ones of the year for us college girls, even though we often find ourselves with a huge chunk of free time we haven’t had since, like, September. Meeting up with friends, celebrating the tail-end of festivities, last-minute christmas shopping (we can help with that), trying to reinstate our fitness routine since finals threw a wrench in it – and that’s without the potential for internships or brief winter employment – yeah, we’re booked til’ spring semester. But before you give up on the whole “workout plan,” check out this awesome routine to fit into an schedule!
The great thing about this routine is that it can be done in only five minutes, and helps you spread out your workout! Try it three times a day, and you’ll have a complete workout that leaves you feeling revved up and free from the guilt of not working out! And, you’ll have plenty of time to spare for your day.
Because you only end up working out for five minutes at a time, you won’t be drained of energy, and you’ll feel refreshed and ready to continuing tackling your day! Stick a workout at the beginning of your day, during the middle of the afternoon, and a little after dinner, and you’ll get a continuous boost of energy at different times, keeping you motivated to stay active. We all know those lazy couch days that hit us right around this time of year, but with small bouts of exercise, we’ll be more likely to be out and about, or more productive during the long hours of work!
Whether you’re catching up on some much needed R&R, or doing the exact opposite by going out and enjoying your break – not always a bad thing – this routine will keep you feeling revitalized and ready for anything the remaining holiday season throws your way! Merry Christmas and happy holidays!
