If you’re like me, you’re traveling for Christmas. This usually means you’re out of your element and away from your typical workout routine. But don’t you worry, bodyweight workout routines to the rescue!
I have two goals for our little Christmas vacation: workout each day AND drink a green smoothie.
We all know Christmas time is filled with treats. Candy, cakes, booze-you name it! It is the most wonderful time of year, after all. So, I’m not gonna worry too much about that. It is what it is. Instead, I’m going to focus on adding things to my holiday season: workouts and smoothies.
The workouts are just a great way to stay on track. Getting a good workout in tends to spill over into other parts of your day like food choices and overall mood.
The green smoothies are an awesome way to get some greens in! They taste great (if made correctly), and ensure you’re getting some good vitamins and nutrients during a time filled with fluff food. So, those are my goals!
Let’s start off the season with a home workout! You don’t need any weights…just your bod.
This could be done once-so it would only be ten minutes- or you could go through it a total of 3 times for a solid 30 minute workout. All you need to do is go through each move for 1 minute, then move onto the next.
Here are a few of the moves:
Side Plank with Rotation:
So, you’re starting in side plank. Next, rotate your torso and arm under the side of your body so you’re twisting, then back into starting position.
Curtsy Lunge with Leg Lift:
Lunge your right foot behind and to the side of your left food (that’s your curtsy). When you bring that right foot back to starting, swing it out to your side performing your lateral leg lift.
So, first start in a plank position, then jump legs up and in, and jump back out into plank position.
Single Leg Bridge
Start with right foot planted on the ground and lift your left leg in the air. Next, bridge hips up into the air, squeezing your glutes, then lower.
It’ll burn, I promise! I’ll try to post a few more workouts before Christmas!
Let me know if you have any questions!
Do you workout when you’re away for the holiday’s?
Great workout. I actually really love squat thrusts but sometimes find myself forgetting about them. Thank for the reminder!
I almost always workout over the holidays. Not because I have too, but because I thoroughly enjoy it. Some workouts may be shorter than another, but it’s still something 🙂
