Just because it's the holidays doesn't mean you can totally forget about working out! I know it's a busy time, but with all the desserts, carbs and snacks, the odd workout is more important than ever.
I love TABATA workouts because they make me work HARD and I feel awesome afterwards. You work as hard as possible for 20 seconds, followed by a 10 second rest. Repeat 8 times. Rest 1-2 minutes between circuits. You can either do entire circuits of the same exercise, or do 8 circuits of each exercise on after the other. Don't forget to warm up and cool down. I use this online tabata timer to help me out.
I actually did this workout on Sunday and felt really good about it. I tried to make it a full body workout which was good because even though it only had a few arm exercises, my arms were killing me on Monday! I chose to do an entire circuit of each exercise before moving on to the next.
Disclaimer: I'm not a personal trainer or a doctor. This is just a workout that I enjoy. If you don't generally workout or are pregnant, this probably isn't for you.
Note: For the lunges, do 4 rounds with right leg and then 4 rounds with left leg
For an extra challenge, I held 5 pound weights for half of the jumping jack rounds. That might be the reason for the sore arms!
