At Home Holiday Workout

Hi all! I just wanted to pop in to wish everyone happy holidays, whichever holidays you may be celebrating! I’ll be celebrating with family for the rest of the week, so I thought I’d leave you with a quick workout that you can do no matter where your travels take you (and especially if you’re not traveling anywhere at all).

All you’ll need for this workout is a kettle bell, and some Dumbbells if you want to make it more challenging. Keep in mind though, often your body weight is enough for a quick workout like this!

If you don’t have a kettle bell or don’t know how to properly do swings, substitute ski jumps (starting on one foot, leap side to side, jumping for height and distance).

Plank up-downs: start in normal (low) plank position on elbows, one hand at a time move to palms (high plank). Low to high is one rep.

Pause squats: pause for 3 seconds at the bottom of your squat.

To make it more challenging: Repeat 4-5 times instead of 3-4; add in dumbbells for extra resistance on squats, lunges, etc.

To make it less challenging: increase rest between exercises and sets.

That’s it for me today, happy holidays everyone!
