You know what time it is?! Time to get moving on Christmas Day (or whatever holiday you and your family celebrate)!! This week is filled with Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, Boxing Day, and I have no clue what else. I did a quick calendar search and was quite surprised to see that Hanukkah lasts for 8 days. That’s badass. Anywho, holidays usually mean time inside with the family, doing a whole lot of nothing. At least that is our schedule this year. We are going to eat breakfast, clean up, then spend hours putting together a charcuterie board since we are suddenly in a competition with one of our friends. He’s a bit of an architect (kind of, but not really, but I also may not really know exactly what he does for a living), so I’m sure his is going to be outrageous, which means we need to step our game up and go big. Be sure to check out my instagram stories Christmas Day because I’m going to let you guys decided who has the best board!!
Ok back to the point, if you are anything like us, you will be inside eating, watching movies, and whipping up cocktails. And if your gym is closed on Christmas morning, not to worry – you can workout at home in the comfort of your own living room, kitchen, bedroom, or wherever else you see fit! This workout is simple, effective, and will have you feeling happy and excited for the rest of the day! Here’s what it looks like –
5 rounds of:
- 10 Slider Lateral Lunges (each side)
- 8 Burpee into 2 Push-Ups
- 8 Slider Reverse Lunge into Slider Static Lunge (each side)
- 10 Lying Side Crunch to Hip Tap (each side)
Then after you complete your 5 rounds, complete 2 rounds (try to go unbroken!!) of:
- 10 Mountain Climbers
- 10 Rotating Mountain Climbers
- 10 Pike Jumps
- 10 Knee Tucks
- 10 Spiderman Plank Jumps
For the slider movements, I just used a kitchen towel on the hardwood floors, nothing fancy! Then I used the runner rug as my yoga mat. No real equipment needed for this one! This workout targets the glutes, legs, shoulders, chest, back, abs, obliques, and more! Check out this video of all the movements below!
I’m 100% supportive of doing absolutely nothing on Christmas Day, but if you like to move a little before the day gets going, hopefully this gives you some inspiration in your own home! There is nothing wrong with getting those endorphins going before a day filled with family, opinions, and often politics. Hope you guys like this one!!
