We get it, the holiday season is chaotic. Work schedules, time off, holiday parties, and prep … squeezing in those moments for yourself to feel good in your body, on track, and not wasting away those hard-earned summer-bod gains can fall to the bottom of the list. But health is wealth, baby, even if your December bank statement disagrees.
We tapped pro-athlete and trainer Lindsey Harrod to share a super effective quickie workout you can do from anywhere, so you can easily keep the blood flowin’ and the abs poppin’ even from your parents’ house. Or cabin in the woods. Or grandma’s basement. Or Hawaii … wherever your holiday travels take you!
“The workout is a bodyweight nine-minute non-stop core workout that can be done anytime, anywhere and is guaranteed to light your core up,” Lindsey explains. Check it out below:
Do each exercise for 60 seconds:
Bring your elbow to meet your knee. Then, straighten that leg back out before switching sides for an extra-spicy bicycle.
Reach your arms and legs long to stretch. Then, reach up and bring one knee into tabletop position, clasping your hand behind each knee before alternating sides. Then, bring both knees in, clasping your hands behind them.
Immediately come into a high plank. Bring your right knee to your right elbow, stretch it out long behind you (don’t let your foot touch the floor!) and bring your knee to the center. Stretch it out long once more, and bring it to your left elbow across the body. Set the foot down, and alternate sides.
Pull your hips back, and sink into a child’s pose for a quick recovery before completing three more rounds to complete your 9-minute, quickie burner.
