TOTAL GYM WEEKLY WORKOUT: TEN MINUTE HOLIDAY TUNE-UP

It’s officially the holiday season with everything that comes with it including ongoing “to do” lists that constantly consume the hours of your day.  The struggles of buying all your gifts, decorating your house (especially the tree if you have one), and making it to all your holiday parties doesn’t leave you much time to work off those sneaky holiday pounds that seem to creep onto your unwanted areas.

But there is a solution!

 

Here is a quick, but challenging, total body circuit that can be done in a pinch (not Grinch) of time on your Total Gym.  This recipe for a fast total-body workout will focus on full-body movements that tone you up from head to toe in a quick and timely manner.  This type of workout is circuit-based and will blast off any extra calorie indulgences from holiday feasting!

*Do each exercise for one minute, without rest, then move to the next exercise.

* Repeat circuit 2-3 times (Depending on time).

*Total Time: 1x through should take no more than 10 min. to complete.
