Well, we have a little over a week before Thanksgiving and I cannot wait. I am driving to Michigan to visit some family and more than likely going eat and lay around for a few days. Anybody else doing the same? Today, I am going to discuss a few exercises that you may be able to do while at home for the holidays, since most gyms are likely closed.
I want to focus on the entire body, but my main focus is on the core and getting the heart rate up to help burn off a few of those extra calories. First off, if you are able to get outside, take your family on a walk or hike or even shopping. This will help keep the metabolism kicking rather than lying around all day and watching football like me. If you are stuck inside, hit the stair case for ten to twenty laps up and down. This will also increase that heart rate, but it probably is not as much fun as the outside activities or shopping!!
The five exercises listed below will help increase your muscular strength, muscular endurance, and cardiovascular endurance. Please try and stretch before and after to help increase your flexibility as well. I recommend doing three sets of 20 repetitions.
