Holiday Workout Blues?
I know the holidays often end up taking us far from home, sometimes for a couple of weeks at a time. If you’re looking to keep moving, but don’t want to find a gym or take tons of time to do it almost nothing beats sprints – no equipment required. Just get dressed, warm up and head outside. The length of the block. Three telephone poles. Pick any distance you want – there is no magic number. If it’s short do it 10 times, if it’s long, do it 3. You can even pick a rest interval you like – how about 2 or 3 times your work time? I promise it’ll be a short workout that definitely won’t leave you feeling out of touch with your fitness routine.
Another fun idea that will definitely challenge your fitness – learn to juggle. No kidding. It improves your coordination and balance, as well as stimulates permanent connections between nerve cells (think riding a bike). Not all workouts have to leave you a quivering ball of jelly on the floor.
– rest –
Perform squats for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 second, jumping lunges for 20 seconds, then rest for 10 seconds
Repeat this sequence a total of 8 times.
Score is total number of reps completed of both exercises.
