The holidays are now in full swing! As the weather turns cold and the holidays keep us busy, it is easy to forgo your workout. However, instead of stopping your exercise routine, simplify it. This will help you to maintain the benefits you have been working so hard to achieve, and will make it easier to return to your full workout plan.
To simplify your cardio workouts try shortening the length of the workout, but increase your intensity. For example, rather than going for a 5 mile run try doing a three mile run with hills or a two mile run at a faster pace.
To simplify your strength workouts find simple exercises you can do at home. Choose a few of your favorite exercises that you can do without even leaving the house. Need some ideas?
